Good Morning Dub Nation,
Eleven days have gone by since the Golden State Warriors last won a game, but that finally changed Monday night after a thrilling 116-113 comeback victory against the Sacramento Kings.
Stephen Curry was a superstar of epic proportions, finishing the game with an absurd stat-line of 47 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, and ZERO TURNOVERS in 38 minutes of play. Curry shined brightest when the Warriors needed him the most with 17 points in the fourth quarter on 6-of-8 shooting from the field including 2-of-3 from the three-point line.
His performance left the team and basketball fans everywhere in awe of his greatness.
