For much of the NBA season, the Golden State Warriors have been coming up short.
They are still the reigning champions but the Warriors have often slipped down to the bottom half of the Western Conference standings a few times and their chance of returning to the Finals seemed slim.
But many diehard fans said they would never count their team out and a major reason for that was the main star of the squad, Stephen Curry.

The last three games have been prime examples of why Curry is still one of the best in the league.
He has scored 34 points and 3 assists on a 53/50/91% stat line, followed by 35 points and 11 assists on 62/50/100%.
On Monday night, Curry did it again with 38 points and 12 assists on 60/57/100%.
Unsurprisingly, the Warriors are now in the midst of a three-game winning streak.
Despite his team’s problems, Curry has been producing some of the best numbers of his career.
He is currently averaging 29.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.5 assists, which actually surpass some of the stats he scored during his MVP years.
The Warriors are looking a lot better lately and have climbed far up in the standings.
They are now the fifth team in the West with a 26-24 record.
If they keep securing more wins, they could soon overtake both the Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings to become the third-best team in their conference.
The idea of them doing this seemed impossible just a few weeks ago.
But the Warriors – and Curry – should always be respected and their skills should never be doubted.
If Curry is able to power his team forward and climb even higher, it’ll be yet another testament to his greatness.NEXT: Steph Curry Has Hilarious Response To Breaking Wilt Chamberlain's Record
