Playing against Stephen Curry just isn't fair sometimes.
And the Los Angeles Clippers were the latest to suffer the Steph experience.
The Golden State Warriors' point guard made up for his self-assessed "trash" performance in Tuesday's season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers. He dropped 45 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and made 8-of-13 shots from 3-point land in a close 115-114 victory over the Clippers in the Warriors' home opener. Curry started the game perfectly -- netting his first 10 shots of the contest. He never slowed down and carried the Warriors to an exciting victory.
As the two-time MVP was lighting up the Clippers, social media exploded, offering thoughts on what everyone just witnessed from Curry. It's safe to say the point guard left many in awe with his sensational scoring night.

It remains unclear how one should go about defending Steph Curry— Ken Tremendous (@KenTremendous) October 22, 2021
Even though Curry had a masterful performance, maybe the most important takeaway from Thursday's game is that the Warriors are 2-0 on a young NBA season. 2-0 @StephenCurry30
