SAN ANTONIO (AP) Even after three NBA championships and two MVP awards, Stephen Curry has never looked better to his coach.
Curry scored 32 points and the Golden State Warriors dominated San Antonio 114-91 on Tuesday night, snapping the Spurs’ three-game winning streak.
”This is the best I’ve ever seen him, just from a confidence and strength standpoint. ”Two-time MVP. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him look better.”
”I worked my butt off over the offseason,” Curry said. ”I’m just happy to be playing. I feel strong. I feel in rhythm, in ultimate control of my game. Shots are falling. ”
”Man, I have to go back in the fault for that,” Warriors veteran Draymond Green said. ”That was nice. It was very close to an (Michael Jordan) little flip. That was a good one for sure. That was up there.”
‘Nothing high flying or above the rim about that,” Curry said. ”I’ll take that recognition.
Golden State ended a five-game losing streak in San Antonio. Eric Paschall had 15 points and Andrew Wiggins added 14 for the Warriors.
It was the Spurs’ final home game before embarking on their annual nearly month-long road trip while the city’s Stock Show & Rodeo is held at the AT&T Center.
After blowing a 14-point lead in a 105-100 loss to San Antonio on Monday, Golden State did not let up in the second night of a back-to-back.
The Spurs received a spark off the bench with Lyles scoring nine points in the first half after entering the game with 3:21 left in the opening quarter. Lyles, who was averaging 10.8 minutes in 12 games this season, played 26 minutes.
The Spurs were without injured starters Derrick White and LaMarcus Aldridge, who has a sore right hip.
