Stephen Curry seemingly left in tears after Draymond Green’s early ejection from Warriors vs Magic

Stephen Curry, since joining the Golden State Warriors, has turned himself into the backbone of the franchise in his 15-year career. The four-time NBA champion has seen the golden days with his beloved team and this season is no exception, where he is enduring the lows.

With only a handful of games remaining to secure an opportunity in the post-season, Curry on Co. have to bring their A-game every time but things almost went South thanks to another Draymond Green moment of madness, which left the charismatic Curry in state that not many have seen before.

Stephen Curry reduced to tears after Draymond Green’s ejection

The Warriors resilient leader couldn’t hold back his tears after Draymond Green was ejected from the action-thriller of a game against the Orlando Magic.

Draymond Green received two technical fouls within four minutes and was eventually ejected from the game after abusing one of the officials, Ray Acosta. Stephen Curry was disappointed with the action and was going through a flush of emotions. The guard was seen rubbing his eyes with his jersey to hide the tears.

During a post-game interview when Curry was asked about Green’s early ejection, the 36-year-old, emphasizing Green’s contribution to the franchise, said, “All I’ll say is we need him. He knows that. We all know that. So whatever it takes to keep him on the floor and be available, that’s what’s gotta happen. Especially at this point in the year.”

The GSW are hanging on the Western table at the 10th position and Curry knows that at this stage, one slip could ruin their dream of qualifying for the post-season tournament. With Green leaving the court, the 10-time All-Star took matters into his own hands and led the Golden State franchise to their second consecutive win.

Stephen Curry leads Warriors to vital win over Magic

Stephen Curry, along with his Warriors men, displayed brilliance on the floor even after losing Draymond Green in the initial minutes of the game.

After the drama-filled first quarter, the Warriors were in the lead by 27-11 but the Magic turned the tables, trailing by only three points by the end of the first half. Despite the two teams going neck-to-neck in the second half, the 3-pointer specialist added a late five points including one from downtown in the crunch time, putting the game to bed and leaving the Magic’s with a 93-101 loss.

Curry boosted the team by adding a total of 17 points, 4 rebounds, and 10 assists on the scoreboard. Curry got support from his teammate Andrew Wiggings who scored 13 points in the fourth quarter and finished the night with 23 points, 6 rebounds, and an assist while shooting at 47.1% from the floor and 50% from the 3-point range.

Klay Thompson’s spectacular 15 points, Gary Payton’s 10, and Moses Moody’s 12 points show that the Warriors are ready to follow their leader to the NBA play-ins. The night ended with Curry’s celebration by kicking on the courtside bench after going through an emotional rollercoaster.
