Klay Thompson's Surprise Win Teaches Smarting Curry a Lesson

The Warriors’ aim of a better seeding in the upcoming playoffs was the motivation they needed for their final regular season match with the Utah Jazz, where they ended up getting the win by a 123-116 score. Nevertheless, even though they tried their best, their result did not change because both the Lakers and the Kings victories in their respective games also factored. To add on to that injury, Stephen Curry, who was taken out on the sidelines due to an ankle injury, could only watch powerlessly as his teammate Klay Thompson’s Surprise Win taught him that competitions are unexpected and can be taken away in an instance. The unpredictable win therefore snatched the prestigious award from him and he was left bewildered and frustrated.

Before the night when the curtain fell, Stephen Curry had 92.3 percent free-throw percentage outstanding at first place among the whole league. He could not have possibly thought that his teammate would act like someone in a bad romance movie just right before the moment of glory. As if the stage wasn’t crowded enough, it was clear that Klay Thompson wouldn’t be leaving that place empty-handed as he topped Curry, who had until then been the competition’s one and only face, in a thrilling face-off against the Jazz.
