The old Stephen Curry is back. The rest of the NBA has been warned.
In his second preseason game for the rebuilt Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, Curry looked like a player poised to make a run at his third MVP. In only 25 minutes, Curry scored 40 points, shooting 14-for-19 from the field, making 6-of-8 three-point shots, and adding six assists and five rebounds. Timberwolves defenders looked helpless as Curry bolted around screens and hit shots that no one else in the league would have the audacity to even attempt.
