Warriors’ superstar Stephen Curry receives plenty of praise from Dwyane Wade on NBA on TNT before the blowout loss against the Mavericks
The Golden State Warriors recently crushed their dreams of attaining the 6th seed in the Western Conference. With the devastating 133-103 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, the Warriors not only squandered their hopes of a 6th seed but in theory, also the chances of Stephen Curry winning his 3rd MVP award. Luka Doncic weaved his magic, as he scored 39 points in a quick 28 minutes.
In a season surrounded by not many positives for the Warriors, Stephen Curry has been one bright shining light. A lot of people doubted how good he would be without his Splash Brother Klay Thompson. Curry has proven all naysayers wrong. The 33-year-old has shown up with yet another MVP caliber season. He is averaging 31.2 points for the season while shooting about 43% from the deep.
Dwyane Wade explains what makes Stephen Curry so lethal
Dwayne Wade was recently on air for the mid-week doubleheader on TNT. Before the Warriors took the floor to take on the Mavericks, Wade could not stop praising the Baby Face Assassin.
“Fear. You have a little fear not knowing what he’s gonna do,” Wade said. “He has an amazing handle. When a guy can shoot from anywhere on the floor when he shoots going left and he shoots going right. And then when he gives the ball up, he’s even more deadly with his cuts, his screening, with his ability to come off screens. He’s just impossible to guard.”
Wade continued and said,
“Obviously all the highlights we see of him coming down shooting these 50-footers — but what I love about him is his ability to give the ball up, the ability to play off the ball, his ability to pass the ball with both hands and also he’s a great finisher,” he explained. “People don’t give him credit [for that].”

Curry has been shooting 66.7% from within 5 feet of the basket. Wade also mentioned how Curry finishes strong at the rim and can take quite some contact as well.
Stephen Curry and his Warriors would like to finish the season strong, and fight in the play-in tournament for a playoff spot.
