But Steve Kerr‘s team kind of hit a wall again, and they may have reached a new low during a 12-point home loss to a depleted Phoenix Suns team.
At least Curry was able to be back on the floor after missing a month with a shoulder injury, and he felt encouraged by how his body responded:
“After four weeks, it’s obviously kind of hit-or-miss on how much rust you’ll have and how quickly you can get up to the speed of the game, Curry said.” And obviously, with the flow, with the way they were playing, the first quarter felt good just to be back out there running with my guys and feeling the energy in the building again. And then kind of hit a little lull in the second and third quarters. I felt like I got stronger as the game went on, which is exciting knowing the body will respond. It’s good going on this road trip and being able to continue to build my nerves back to where they were before the injury, and hopefully get everybody on the same page of how we need to go into this road trip and find a way to kind of right the ship after these last three games.”
Curry wasn’t as efficient as per usual, taking 22 shots en route to 24 points, but that’s normal after a long layoff.
So, now that they’re back to full strength, the Warriors could put together yet another of their epic runs, so let’s keep an eye on this team going forward.
