Stephen Curry drops another 40 bomb to improve their record to the best in the NBA

Curry drops 40 points to defeat the rolling Chicago Bulls by 119-93.

The Golden State Warriors and the Chicago Bulls were slated to meet at Chase Arena this evening, but Steph Curry had something to say about it. This season, the better half of the ‘Splash Brothers’ has been unguardable, and tonight was no exception. Steph made 9 or more triples for the 36th time in his career. To put this statistic in context, second place goes to James Harden, who set a new record by scoring 9+ triples in a single game for the ninth time. Curry isn’t just different; he’s a true basketball great. Steph was even taken out of the game for the closing minutes of the fourth quarter by Steve Kerr.

Golden State won the game 119-93, putting a stop to any uncertainty about the Bulls. The Warriors are unquestionably the best team in the NBA this season. There’s no doubt about it, thanks to what Curry is accomplishing almost entirely on his own.

He’d just scored 50 points against the Hawks and 25 points against the Timberwolves. But tonight’s game versus Chicago was special for him because he wanted to make a statement against the team that produced Michael Jordan. With Lonzo Ball, Zach LaVine, and DeMar DeRozan hooping beautifully this season, a youthful Bulls team was showing to be impressive. Everyone on the Bulls struggled tonight except Zach Lavine, Lonzo was an abysmal 2 of 11 from the field, Derozan also only shot 30.8% from the floor, while they missed their big man Nikola Vucevic due to protocol, even his presence wouldn’t have been enough to stop another virtuoso from the greatest shooter alive.
