Stephen Curry is coming back tonight, or so we’ve been told. His injured ankle has healed. The old year is done. He’s coming back, and he’s coming for vengeance.
Or ... He’s coming to do some Billy Madison impersonations?
I’m not sure.

His, um, boots are tight? He’s ready to ... um, not sprain his ankle? Okay. I could be down with this.
In more official wording, here’s the release from Warriors PR:
Injury report for tonight's game vs. Memphis: Omri Casspi (sprained right ankle), Stephen Curry (sprained right ankle), Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) & Klay Thompson (low back tightness) are probable.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) December 30, 2017
The Warriors were embarrassed by the Hornets last night, but it’s almost a new year and it’s most certainly a new night. Can the Dubs pull out one final victory behind their twice-MVP leader? Can they close out 2017 on a high note (more on this later).
It’s been an uneven start to the 2017-18 season so far for the Warriors. Before the dang season even started, they had to deal with a massive amount of national media attention in regards to the White House situation, and as they passed through the first few months, they continued to have a gigantic target on their backs.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to beat the Warriors? They are the best.
It’s like if you were an up and coming actor and you had a chance to go head to head with Daniel Day Lewis. If you were full of wit and vigor, you might jump at the chance, only to beaten down by Lewis’ superior skill. Welcome to the Warriors’ world. They can’t always be Daniel Day Lewis, but they can try. Their ceiling is still the highest in the league, even if they give away disappointing games every now and then to teams like the Hornets.
Either way, what are you looking for tonight? What are you expecting in the final game of 2017?
