Stephen Curry’s 268-game 3-point streak ends after scoring only 7 points in Warriors victory against Blazers

The Golden State Warriors have heavily relied on the extraordinary skills of Stephen Curry this season. Despite their inconsistent performance and less-than-stellar results, Curry has consistently shone as a bright spot. However, in their recent victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, even Curry looked off the scale.

In their recent game against the Blazers, Curry struggled to find his usual rhythm and failed to deliver a remarkable performance. And while a win was all they asked for, the media were quick to highlight the Golden State Warrior’s underwhelming performance.

Finishing the game with a paltry seven points on 2-of-12 shooting, Stephen Curry struggled to find his rhythm. His 0-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc ended his historic streak, which had spanned over five years as the last time Curry failed to make a 3-pointer was in November 2018.

Although Stephen Curry had an off night, he contributed to the team’s success with 8 assists, further demonstrating his versatility on the court. Despite the close contest, the Warriors emerged victorious, securing their second consecutive win.

While the streak may have ended, there is no doubt that Curry will continue to captivate audiences with his unparalleled shooting skills. But what was more important for the Warriors was the win, and win they did.

Warriors beat Blazers

The Golden State Warriors achieved an impressive 118-114 triumph over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night, marking their second consecutive win since November 3rd. Given the Warriors’ challenging season thus far, it seemed unlikely for them to emerge victorious.

However, another of their key players, Klay Thompson continued his productive streak by contributing 28 points on 16 field-goal attempts. Additionally, Andrew Wiggins, coming off the bench, delivered a remarkable performance, scoring 25 points on 9-of-12 shooting in just 29 minutes.

The contributions from the young players were crucial to the team’s success as well. Trayce Jackson-Davis showcased his abilities with 14 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and a block in only 17 minutes. Meanwhile, Jonathan Kuminga and Brandin Podziemski both achieved double-figures in scoring.

Throughout the game, the Trail Blazers struggled to gain the lead, with the Warriors establishing a commanding 22-point advantage in the early stages of the third quarter. However, the resilient Blazers gradually narrowed the deficit.

In the final minutes of the game, the outcome remained uncertain. Despite holding a 113-108 lead, Stephen Curry attempted a deep three-pointer to extend his streak, allowing the Blazers to convert on a transition and-one opportunity but it was Chris Paul who responded with a clutch midrange fadeaway, maintaining a two-possession lead.

The Blazers managed another and-one, reducing the lead to a single point. Subsequently, Curry missed a free throw, but the Blazers, opting not to use a timeout, failed to capitalize.

While it was a forgettable night for Curry individually, it was another significant victory for the Warriors, indicating positive signs of improvement moving forward. With their resilience on full display, the team showcased tremendous promise that could reverse their early-season struggles.
