After being out for a month due to injury, Stephen Curry finally made his comeback on Sunday. Regrettably, the Golden State Warriors were unable to defeat a Los Angeles Lakers team without LeBron James despite his return to the starting lineup. LA’s Anthony Davis was a force, helping his team defeat the Bucks 113-105 in a critical victory.
Curry said during the game that the Warriors had been having trouble lately and that their recent struggles were mostly due to their many ailments. Whatever the case, Steph continues to have faith in the skills of the reigning champions:
Curry added, via Warriors on NBCS on Twitter, “It’s just a lot that we’re trying to deal with, and (we) still gotta be hopeful about where we’re going because until we get defeated, we still feel like we’re a difficult matchup for anyone. “That’s the kind of assurance we need as the season winds down and we prepare for the postseason.”
The Warriors are a different beast in the playoffs, as we’ve seen in the past. They are now ranked fifth in the West, and at this point, only a complete collapse would keep them from sealing their place in the playoffs this season. Golden State will thus need to utilise their final regular-season games to regain their form. Because Stephen Curry has rejoined the team, it will soon be business as usual for the former back-to-back MVP. Better be ready, rest of the league.
