How much intrigue can one game have?
That’s a bit philosophical, I admit. It’s a bit like a “what is the sound of one hand clapping,” sort of question.
But seriously, the Nets come to San Francisco Saturday night, with their leading man, former Warriors’ star and NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant, ready to put on a show with his new superteam. Plus, his old super teammate, Stephen Curry, is on fire for Golden State during this season’s early stretch.
That’s why the game is on in prime time on network television. But there’s more to watch for, especially for Warriors fans — and for one particular player on Durant’s new club.
Namely, yet another impressive 3-point record could become Curry’s alone on Saturday night, according to the team’s PR department.
Wow, 50 percent from distance? That’s nuts. With four made 3s against the Nets, Curry indeed has an opportunity on Saturday to break a 3-point record set by new Nets star, James Harden. Harden recently left the Rockets — after having lost to the Warriors multiple times in the playoffs — to join Durant and guard Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn.
Now that’s some added intrigue, for sure. Will Curry steal the show from Durant and his super squad, possibly breaking Harden’s record as he leads his undermanned club to a much-needed win? Time will tell, and NBA fans will be glued to the TV set Saturday night to watch the show.
