Curry has 33 points and the Warriors beat the Clippers for the eighth time in a row

Angels Stephen Curry is among the most dangerous players in the NBA. But an angry Curry proved even more lethal.

The Golden State star managed to shake off his frustration Sunday over the Los Angeles Clippers after being called up for a technical foul with 9:08 left in the fourth quarter. He scored 11 of 33 points after that as the Warriors extended their winning streak to eight points with a 105-90 victory.

“It was just a buildup of all kinds of weird things. It all led to where I thought I got wrong,” said Curry, who also had a season-high six times to come out with five rebounds and six assists. . Then it was time to direct my energy to put the ball in the basket.”

Curry lost his temper when he made no mistake while driving to the basket after it emerged that Clippers guard Terence Man had called. Coach Steve Kerr said he thought Curry would get a technician when he saw him walking toward the official and pumping his fist.

“He was so upset as I saw him and that I had been in the business for a long time. He obviously got it wrong,” Kerr said. “When he knows he’s made a mistake in a play like that and he doesn’t have the call, the competitor in it will go out and lose his mind a little bit. But she will motivate him as she did in this case.”

Golden State took a 79-70 lead when Curry’s blast happened, but they would have put him away then with a 21-7 sprint over a roughly five-minute period. Curry made three three-pointers during the boom, and applied a dagger with an unbalanced three-pointer from the right angle with 5:20 remaining.

Otto Porter Jr added 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Jordan Paul scored 17 points for the Warriors. They improved their best NBA record to 18-2 before Tuesday night’s showdown in Phoenix against the Suns – 17-3 after winning 16 in a row.

Paul George topped Los Angeles with 30 points, and Eric Bledsoe and Marcus Morris added 13 points each. The Clippers entered the game by winning eight of their last 10 home games.

The Clippers Warriors played hard in a 115-113 loss during the first week of the season, but they couldn’t keep up this time in the second half. The main reason for this was a 25-point rise in the season that led to Golden State’s 31 points.

“We’ve been talking about it, I think, all season — just sponsoring basketball. If we turn the ball against this team, they’re going to make you pay,” coach Tyronn Lue said. “I think among our sales, 13, 14 were bad turnovers. . We have to do a better job with our decision making… We are not doing the right process now.”
