Confirmed: Steph Curry is a big Juan Toscano-Anderson guy.
Toscano-Anderson got the party started early in Thursday's contest against the Kings, stealing the ball from Sacramento's point guard De'Aaron Fox and breaking away from an emphatic windmill dunk early in the first quarter.
Curry, who remains sidelined from game action with a tailbone contusion, clearly was impressed.
Toscano-Anderson started Thursday's game in place of Draymond Green, who was ruled out before the contest with a general illness. With the Warriors down two key starters, he made sure to fire up his teammates early.
The Warriors finished the first quarter holding a narrow 37-35 lead over the Kings, who entered Thursday aiming for their third straight win. Andrew Wiggins was Golden State's early leading scorer with 12 points, with Toscano-Anderson racking up seven.
