Golden State Warriors talisman Steph Curry feels the team desperately needed the win against Memphis Grizzlies after they won by 122-120 on Wednesday night in San Francisco. Curry top-scored with 34 points for the Dubs on 10-19 shooting.
The Warriors had lost their previous match against Brooklyn Nets by 120-116 and thus it was crucial for them to return to winning ways. In fact, Curry received an ejection after he frustratingly threw his mouthpiece. It was a crucial point in the game when 1:14 were remaining in the game.
“It was a crucial time in the game, and the way that our season has gone, questions about a heightened sense of urgency … when you want something really bad … I reacted in a way that put myself out of the game and put the team in a tough place,” Curry said after the team’s win.
Curry feels it was an important win for his team after they registered the thrilling win.
“We needed this win in a desperate way,” Curry said. “Not just because it was Memphis and all of the narratives there, but it is just how we are playing. … To see the guys bounce back the way that they did and finish the job, there were a lot of celebrations in the tunnel.”
On the other hand, Draymond Green was also delighted with the team’s crucial win. Green feels it is always a competitive match against Memphis Grizzlies as they brought the best in them.
“This is a big win for us for a multitude of reasons,” Draymond Green said.
He continued: “I think there is always more focus in this game. I think [the Grizzlies] bring out a different competitive side in us and we do the same for them. Both teams rise up for this game, it’s a fun one to play every time.”
Golden State Warriors will next face Toronto Raptors on Friday night.
