Stephen Curry made his comeback at Golden State Warriors on Friday after a long injury. The star player could not prevent his team from defeating Toronto Raptors: 113-121.
The 31-year-old Curry stood aside for more than four months due to a broken hand. He sustained his injury at the end of October in a game against Phoenix Suns and needed a slightly longer recovery than expected.
On his return to the Raptors, Curry, who received a warm welcome, was 23 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. The guard showed some nice samples and participated in the Chase Center in San Francisco for more than 27 minutes.
In recent months, the Warriors have not only had to do without Curry, but also without the injured star player Klay Thompson, who is still not back. The formation saw another star fly to Brooklyn Nets last summer with Kevin Durant.
The absence of the top players can be felt at Golden State. The champion of 2015, 2017 and 2018 does not reach the level of recent years and occupies the fifteenth and last place in the Western Conference with fourteen victories against 48 defeats.
By the way, it seems likely that Curry will make an appearance with the United States at the Olympic Games in Tokyo next summer. He was included in the preselection together with LeBron James, among others, last month.
