Wiggins highlights rare perk of being Steph’s teammate originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
As so many of his teammates past and present know, there’s a whole lot of perks to being Steph Curry‘s teammate on the Warriors.
During the Warriors‘ 117-99 blowout road win over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday, Andrew Wiggins, who is in his second full season as Curry’s teammate, saw a rare example of what makes Steph so special. While his Warriors battled Kevin Durant, James Harden and Co., “MVP” chants rained down from the Barclays Center stands.
They weren’t for Durant or Harden, though.
They belonged solely to Curry.
The two-time MVP showed he should be the favorite for the award right now by putting on a show in Brooklyn. He continued an historic shooting start to the season, scoring 37 points and sinking nine 3-pointers while doing so.
Wiggins also had a strong game, scoring 19 points while shooting 7-for-11 from the field. He was plus-10 in plus-minus.
The Warriors now are an NBA-best 12-2 on the season. It all starts with Curry, who is the main attraction whether the Warriors are in San Francisco or The City That Never Sleeps.
