Steph Curry wasn't happy Thursday night, and he let his teammates know.
An animated Curry addressed the Warriors in a second-half timeout with Golden State trailing the Los Angeles Clippers by double digits in both teams' first game after the All-Star break.
His sister, Sydel Curry-Lee, could relate to how the two-time NBA MVP's teammates felt.
Curry's frustration was evident Thursday, and for good reason. He spoke Wednesday about the Warriors embracing their tough schedule out of the break, starting with Thursday's game against the Clippers.
"Tough stretch of games but I think that can help in terms of locking in and understanding how important every possession is, especially at the start of the game tomorrow against a really good team," Curry said Wednesday in a video conference with reporters. "We're excited for the opportunity, especially after sitting on those last two games for the whole break."
The Warriors didn't have the strong start Curry envisioned. After trailing by just two points at the end of the first quarter, the Clippers led the Warriors 59-43 after the first half. With rookie center James Wiseman benched, Golden State trailed 104-68 by the end of the third quarter.
Curry has stayed patient throughout the Warriors' up-and-down season, understanding their need to balance winning and player development. For the first time this season, it appeared Thursday his patience is starting to wear thin.
