Many Golden State Warriors fans will deem their team's preseason tour of China a huge success, especially after the way they performed in their last game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.
Despite the fact they had lost their first meeting against the Timberwolves earlier in the week, the Warriors managed to pick up an impressive 142-110 against their China preseason opponents yesterday at the Mercedes-Benz Arena Shanghai in Shanghai.
Steph Curry was the player of the game, as the two-time NBA MVP showed off his talent by scoring 40 points across three quarters to help Golden State get the victory by the end of the game. Kevin Durant scored 22 points himself in the game as well.
Following the conclusion of the second Warriors-Timberwolves game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr was asked by The Athletic’s Anthony Slater what his favorite moment of the trip to China has been. Considering Curry was fresh off a 40-point game, many thought he would pick this moment.
Instead, Kerr gave an answer that many people will find absolutely hilarious, and it just goes to show how witty and what a great sense of humor the Golden State head coach has, as he said his favorite part of the trip was the foot massage he got on Saturday.
Foot massage is certainly a good form of stress relief, and it could have been exactly what the Warriors head coach could have needed, especially since he will have less game court time to get his players ready for their season opener against the Houston Rockets later this month.
The Warriors have had fewer preseason games than their Western Conference rivals because of their trip to China, meaning some members of their squad may not have had enough time to fine-tune their bodies for the start of the regular season.
Golden State has one more preseason game left to play, which is at the Oracle Arena against the Sacramento Kings on October 13, before they play their first regular season game against the Rockets on October 17.
