Stephen Curry shows off quarterback skills in warmups before Warriors vs 76ers showdown - WATCH
Stephen Curry showcases quarterback skills in warmup, leads Warriors to 127-104 win over 76ers with support from Kuminga and Wiggins.
In a highly anticipated matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Philadelphia 76ers, basketball fans were treated to a playful and unexpected twist in Stephen Curry's warmup routine. The 35-year-old NBA star, fresh off an impressive performance against the Brooklyn Nets, showcased his finesse and skill in a lighthearted moment before the game.
After a solid victory over the Nets, the Warriors were eager to continue their winning streak on the road against the Sixers. While Curry led the team with 29 points, it was also the young talent of Jonathan Kuminga that played a crucial role in the team's success, contributing 28 points and providing valuable support to the seasoned star.
Curry, known for his on-court theatrics, delighted fans by incorporating a playful nod to the NFL into his warmup routine. By playfully balling up his laundry and mimicking San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Brock Purdy, complete with a no-look pass to the security personnel, Curry showcased his remarkable quarterback skills in a fun-filled moment.
Despite Curry's off-shooting night, where he only managed to hit 2 of 7 field goal attempts, the combined efforts of Kuminga and Andrew Wiggins, who contributed 37 points on 17-26 shooting, were enough for the Warriors to secure a 127-104 win over the 76ers and sweep the season series. It is a rare occurrence for the Warriors to win with Curry not scoring in double digits, but the team demonstrated their depth and resilience as other players stepped up when their star player faced challenges.
Both teams saw every player on the bench get a chance to contribute, but the 76ers, playing without the services of reigning MVP Joel Embiid, were outplayed on the day. The Warriors' victory showcased their ability to overcome adversity and rely on their depth to secure a decisive win on the road.
