Morning Rewind, 12/3: Stephen Curry goes off against his hometown Hornets

Steph Curry Interviews Dad on Dell Curry Night

On the night that was initially intended to honor Stephen Curry's dad, the spotlights wound up turning right back onto the Golden State Warriors.

Dell Curry Night at Time Warner Cable Arena was a tribute to the first Charlotte Hornet ever, and current team broadcaster for Fox Sports in the Carolinas. But, predictably, it was only a matter of time before the younger Curry and the undefeated Warriors stole the show. Curry upped his scoring average by putting up 40 on his hometown team, shooting 14-of-18 and making eight of his 11 three-pointers.

Even his own teammates don't bother going for offensive boards. They know almost everything is falling anyway.


Seriously. At this point, it just doesn't make much sense.


Of course, it helped that Kemba Walker, Nic Batum and Jeremy Lamb combined to shoot 13-of-45. Golden State now moved to sixth on the defensive efficiency ranking, to go along with their first-ranked offense.

Klay Thompson contributed with 21 points, while Draymond Green grabbed 11 boards and logged nine assists. The Warriors are some kind of machine, and at this point, it doesn't seem likely that they can be stopped any time soon.
