The Golden State Warriors may have lost their game to the Pelicans on Tuesday, but they were at the center of the viral moment of the day.
Towards the end of the third quarter, Curry was promoted for a show jumper, his team losing 6, when suddenly the lights go out and the arena goes completely dark. It doesn’t take long for things to light up again, but all of the players were visibly confused, especially Curry, who was stripped of pretty good looks.
All over NBA Twitter, fans used it as joke material, citing that the Pelicans pulled out all the stops to slow down the 2x MVP.
Curry himself replied to the moment and said that the experience was “first” for him …
“I had never seen that before. They tried to get me to say I shot it before the lights went out. It’s a strange situation because we flowed a bit and after that it was probably a difficult offensive situation. “
Whether you want to say Curry turned off the lights or the Pels found a new way to stop him, it’s unlikely we will get a specific answer as to what the hell happened there.
Even so, it seemed to affect Steph negatively as he went 1-13 to finish the game.
If the warriors are to sneak into the playoffs, Curry has to be better. We’ll see if he can step on the plate and if other teams decide to use the pelicans’ newly discovered tactics against him.
