Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has now moved ahead of Rick Barry in second place on the franchise’s all-time scoring list after earning 19 points in Friday’s Christmas Day matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The points took him to 16454 and into second place, behind Wilt Chamberlain who has 17783 for the franchise. But while Curry made history on the night, he was clearly disappointed with his side losing a second game this season.
The Golden States Warriors were defeated by the Milwaukee Bucks 138-99 with Chris Middleton of the Bucks scoring a game high of 31 points for the Bucks.
The defeat against Milwaukee was the second for the States after being defeated by Nets in the opening night. Curry told reporters after the game that his side needs to win immediately by improving collectively. He said:
We just have to focus more on what we’re trying to do. Sometimes when you miss shots, you tend to force and press and not think.AdvertisementAdvertisement
Our group’s collective IQ has to get a lot better in those moments where you’re not making shots.
