Main course - GOAT vindaloo in a Klay pot
Everyone knows vindaloo is the hottest curry. Well, except the curry that was served up in the second quarter tonight. Steph Curry was in full-on GOAT mode, scorching the Chicago Bulls for 26 points. Overall he finished with 33 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and two steals, and a ridiculous +39. Here’s the full package.
His final line was a hyper-efficient 29 points on 12-for-17 shooting, 4 rebounds, and one each of the assist, steal, and block categories.
A vintage splash brothers performance.
But you need some side dishes to go alongside something that hot.
Ah, a spicy treat made of delicious potatoes. And how do you like these spicy potatoes? Jordan Bell, in his first NBA start, was out to prove that cash considerations do not rule everything around him.
What a stat line - 7 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and a monster 6 blocks. A couple of those blocks were on transition breakaways where it looked like the Bulls had an easy bucket. Here’s the highlights:
In fact, the only thing I have to quibble with in Greg’s excellent preview is that I reckon Jordan Bell probably could just jump over 11 feet 8 inches of dollar dollar bills y’all. Another winning dunk contest idea there.
The meat inside the doughy goodness is the secret. And so it was with Zaza Pachulia tonight. The much maligned big man had a great game with 11 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and two steals leading to trademark slo-mo fast-breaks.
With all this spice you need something to soak up and take the edge off. It may be in the background, but pilau rice is indispensable and goes with everything. A bit like Omri Casspi tonight, who finished with 6 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and a block.
Another favorite classic, it’s smooth, creamy, and filled with vegetables. A bit like Andre Iguodala. Tonight he finished with a very solid 10 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal, +27, and a turn back the clock dunk.
Nice, like sugar and spice.
Talking of sugar, to finish off a decent meal you need something sweet at the end. How about the garbage time line up of:
- Nick Young with 17 Swaggy points, 6 rebounds
- Patrick McCaw with 9 points, 2 assists, while rediscovering his shot 3-3 from three point range
- Kevon Looney with 7 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and a block
- Quinn Cook, who has been tearing it up in the G-League, proved he belonged on this menu with 4 points, 5 assists, and 2 rebounds in 13 minutes
So, what’s your dish of the day? What do you mean you’re too stuffed from that well known holiday Britsgiving?! Pick one!
