Warriors’ Stephen Curry trolls Rudy Gobert off the bench on a defensive sequence and NBA Twitter has a field day with the same

The Golden State Warriors hosted the Utah Jazz for a very important matchup. After the Warriors had fallen down to the 4th seed, the Jazz were looking like their first-round contenders. However, with the win last night, the Warriors are back on the 3rd seed and now have clinched their playoff spot.

The Jazz built up a lead as large as 21-points, but the Dubs managed to fight their way back. Jordan Poole kept the Warriors alive, cutting the Jazz lead to 13 by half-time. In the second half, Klay Thompson came alive and scored 24 points, leading the Dubs to the win. Draymond Green looked on point last night, as he faced his defensive nemesis, Rudy Gobert.

While Stephen Curry could not play, he was enjoying the action from the bench. There was a certain moment in the game where it seemed like Steph was having too much fun.

NBA Twitter reacts to Stephen Curry trolling Rudy Gobert

In the 4th quarter, there was a possession where Rudy Gobert played solid defense all possession, but the ball got kicked out to Klay Thompson, who drilled the triple. Rudy Gobert appeared to be stomping his foot in frustration, and Stephen Curry, who was sitting behind him on the bench, imitated the same.

This had NBA Twitter in splits, as they couldn’t stop laughing about the same.

Well, looks like Steph not only had the team hyped, but all of Dubnation too. Hopefully, he recovers soon, and is cleared to return at the start of the playoffs.
