OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Stephen Curry came home late Tuesday night following the Golden State Warriors' blowout loss to the Charlotte Bobcats and received some basketball advice from an unexpected source: His wife, Ayesha.
She told him to get back to having fun, which has been harder during this season of unusually high expectations.
The Warriors (30-20) enter Saturday's game at Phoenix (29-20) with the same record through 50 games as last season, when they finished 47-35 to earn the Western Conference's sixth playoff seed. With a brighter spotlight nationally and an always fervent fan base in the Bay Area, success has not been celebrated nearly the same way this time.
The Warriors, only two years removed from a 23-43 record during the locket-shortened season, are still learning how to manage expectations.
