Steph Curry has been mesmerizing the Warriors all season long.

Steve Kerr proclaims Curry is playing at his highest level ever, Juan Toscano-Anderson feels privileged to play with Steph and Kent Bazemore called No. 30 the “best player in basketball right now.”

After watching Curry score 32 points in back-to-back nights while playing Houdini-like basketball, the Spurs were the latest to heap praise on the Dubs superstar. 

“We just came off playing one of the greatest humans of all time,” Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan said after the game (H/T San Antonio Express-News).

Curry continues to find new ways to score the basketball, like with his Michael Jordan-esque reverse layup on Tuesday.

For once, the Spurs might be happy to be going on their annual rodeo road trip, when they get booted out of the AT&T Center for country music bands, livestock and carnival rides.

“We’re not going to see Stephen Curry on this road trip,” point guard Dejounte Murray said.

As Anthony Slater of The Athletic noted, Curry creates easy buckets for his teammates simply by being on the floor and a constant threat to score.

“You’ve got to communicate for 48 minutes of a basketball game,” Murray said. “With Stephen Curry, you’ve got to be aware of him. But the rest of the team is cutting, setting screens, getting themselves open.”

 

Up next, the Warriors return home to play the Orlando Magic on Thursday at Chase Center before a marquee matchup against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday.
