Warriors in search of joy as season hits new low on night Steph Curry drops 50

On night Steph drops 50, joyless Dubs' season
hits new low
Steph Curry scoring 50 points should have been the story of the night. Well, it is. But instead of celebrating another feat on an infinite scroll of accomplishments, the story from the Warriors' latest loss is all about how they wasted yet another night of him being the greatest show in sports.
Curry completed his 11th career 50-point game. This was only the third time the result has been a loss. By the time he came out of the game with 1:42 remaining in the loss, his teammates had scored 62 points -- 12 more than Curry himself.
In what was his 10th game this season scoring at least 30 points, third of 40 or more and first 50-point performance, Curry made 17 of his 28 shot attempts, was 7-for-11 on 3-pointers and drained all nine of his free throws. For good measure, he led the Warriors with nine rebounds and added six assists.
His teammates, however, went 24-for-63 (38.1 percent) overall and 10-for-30 (33.3 percent) from long distance.
Meanwhile, the Warriors' defense continued to be atrocious. The Suns, without Chris Paul, Cam Johnson and Landry Shamet, shot 52.4 percent from the field and made 20 3-pointers while making 52.6 percent of their 38 attempts. To Steve Kerr, though, the Warriors' issues go far beyond the box score.
