Stephen A Smith praises Stephen Curry while warning the rest of the league about the Warriors post the return of Klay Thompson next season
The Golden State Warriors suffered a harsh blowout loss against Luka Doncic and his Mavericks tonight. The Warriors had a terrible first half, only managing to score 29 points in the whole of the first 24 minutes of the game. The first half included a 10-minute scoring drought for the hosts. The Dubs came out strong in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to cover the 33 point deficit created in the first half.
Stephen Curry had somewhat of a quiet night. He could manage only 27 points, shooting 5/9 from the deep. Luka Doncic led the charge for the Mavericks. He finished the night with 39 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds.
Stephen A Smith isn’t too impressed by Curry’s month-long hot-streak
Stephen Curry now has 90 made 3 pointers for the month of April. The Warriors still have one game left for the month to end. He broke James Harden’s record for most 3s in a calendar month(82) in his last game against the Kings.
The Jump, hosted on ESPN had Stephen A Smith, Richard Jefferson, Robert Horry, along with host Rachel Nichols recently. There Rachel asked the three to rate Curry’s achievement as ‘Something, Nothing or Everything’. While Horry went for Everything, Jefferson and Stephen A. called it something.
Is Steph Curry breaking James Harden’s 3-point record Something, Nothing or Everything? @StephenASmith @RKHorry and @Rjeff24 take a closer look. Stephen A: “You just look at him and say ‘this is the greatest shooter that God has ever created.'” pic.twitter.com/bddQVltJMV

Horry called all that Curry’s achieving without Klay Thompson playing and Draymond Green not being 100%, extraordinary. According to Smith, Curry is the greatest shooter to ever exist, and this record is something. It would have meant everything if he did the same while the Warriors were a serious playoff threat.
Stephen A. also used this as a chance to warn the league that the Warriors are set to make their way back to the WCF once Klay is back and healthy.
