Steph Curry made history on Monday and had the chance to do it again on Wednesday — until Steve Kerr stepped in to stop it.
The Golden State Warriors head coach had to physically restrain his star player from returning to a blowout win to chase an NBA record, a moment that caught some viral attention online. The Warriors were blowing out the Oklahoma City Thunder when Golden State’s coach decided that Curry was done for the night, leading to a lighthearted moment when he tried to sneak his way back into the game.
The two-time league MVP’s week got off to a great start on Monday as he passed Wilt Chamberlain for the franchise’s all-time scoring record in a win over the Denver Nuggets. Curry came into the game 19 points shy of the NBA legend, and reached that mark before the first quarter was over. He would finish the quarter with 21 points and ended up with 53 for the game.
