Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors was injured the same day as Madison Bumgarner. It was a dark day in Bay Area sports, with two of the Bay’s super stars going down within hours of each other.
However, Curry’s injury didn’t end up being quite as long-lasting as Bumgarner’s, and he made his return on Tuesday night in Golden State’s win over the New Orleans Pelicans in Game 2 of the NBA Western Conference semi-finals.
Curry came off of the bench in his 2018 playoff debut, scoring 28 points on 15 attempted shots in a little over 27 minutes and giving the series that extra spark that only he could.
In attendance was our very own super star, Barry Bonds. And he was every bit as impressed as the rest of the crowd, bowing down to Curry before offering him some well-wishes, or advice, or stock tips - whatever it is that super star athletes exchange in their private, microphone-less moments.
Curry, for his part, seemed in awe of Bonds as well. It was the type of love fest that the #BayAreaUnite hashtag was created for.
