There was a moment on Tuesday night when it seemed like the Golden State Warriors were about to lose yet again.
The team was being beaten by the New Orleans Pelicans by 20 points and defeat seemed all but assured.
But then the Warriors did what the Warriors do, turned things around, and looked like a championship team again.
Finals MVP Stephen Curry got red-hot, scoring 39 points and 8 rebounds on 8-of-15 from the field, leading his team to come back and secure a 120-109 victory.

Following the triumph, Warriors fans breathed a major sigh of relief and also heaped tons of praise on the team – especially on Curry.
One fan put it plainly, saying that Curry was “doing all he can to carry this sorry team.”
Curry has indeed been the most consistent part of the troubled team all season long.
The Warriors have had many issues this year but Curry has not been one of them with his average of 29.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.4 assists.
Doing all he can to carry this sorry team.

Many people felt that Tuesday’s performance again confirmed that Curry is the greatest of all time.
Indeed, there was a slew of goat emojis popping up on Twitter on Tuesday night.

Other people thought the whole team was responsible for the big win.
One fan noted that the Warriors seem downright unstoppable when they perform as they did in the second half of their game against the Pelicans.
“When they play like that they’re so tough to stop,” said one NBA fan.
The Warriors are so good when they’re rolling like they were in the 2nd half tonight. When they play like that they’re so tough to stop.

However, some didn’t think Golden State’s win was such a big deal.
Barely Beating a pelicans team with no Zion or Jose is not impressive
