Curry electrifies Oracle Arena in return to lineup.
After watching from the sidelines since March 23, Golden State Warriors' All-Star point guard Steph Curry returned to the lineup last night and picked up right where he left off.
The two-time MVP came off the bench for the Warriors and it only took him 11 seconds of game time to drain his first three, sending the crowd at Oracle Arena into a frenzy.
"Eleven seconds is all it took?" Curry responded to ESPN when told how quickly he got on the board. "Wow. I didn't know that. But when it left my hands, I knew it was good."
"Our crowd is crazy in general," Curry said after the Warriors' Game 2 win. "And whatever opportunity they have to kind of pick us up and create that home-court advantage that we rely on, that's big for us."
"[It was] pretty loud," Draymond Green said about Curry's reception. "Just him walking on the floor. You know, it was kind of electric in there and for him to hit that 3 that fast, it brought a lot of life to the building and a lot of light, spirit. Pretty fitting for sure."
Curry finished with 28 points in 27 minutes of action, to go along with seven rebounds and three steals. The Warriors held off the Pelicans 121-116, improving to 2-0 in the series as the two teams head to New Orleans for Games 3 & 4.
