Stephen Curry has been carrying the Golden State Warriors all these years. He led the franchise to become the modern-day dynasty. Along with Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, Steph was able to end the 40-year-long wait of the Dubs Nation back in 2015. The Dubs were champions once again since 1975. But once the Splash brothers tasted a championship success, they looked for even more. The Dubs will again look up to Steph Curry to guide them to a winning streak. Whenever Curry has a low game, the Dubs seem to be in trouble.

But when that happens against the defending champions, the Denver Nuggets, there’s no way of coming back. Recently, the Warriors lost to the Nuggets on Christmas Day. But the GSW team blamed the referees for calling out a lot of fouls. As a result, Nikola Jokic received as many as 18 free throws. Anyhow, Steph Curry’s low game on December 25 seems to be an infamous tradition.

On Christmas Day, Stephen Curry scored 18 points, and he made only seven shots out of 21 from the field. It is not new for the Dubs Nation to see Curry struggle on December 25. Some fans trolled Steph, saying that he hates big nights. Moreover, it is still a mystery why Christmas Day games always seem to present a unique set of challenges for Stephen Curry. Even the netizens wonder why Steph hates Christmas night games. Some fans wrote, “He hates Christmas confirmed.”

Again, some other fans called it the “Curry Christmas Curse.” Adding to that, another netizen mentioned that people will have a field day with this one. As Steph Curry had a low day, it was impossible for the Warriors to stop the dynamic duo of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray. Albeit they did get a lot of free throws, Murray led the scoring with 28 points, and the Joker scored 26 points in the end. Moreover, the two-time MVP went on to score 18 out of 18 free throws for the Denver Nuggets.

As a coach, Steve Kerr has seen the growth and evolution of the three-point King. The Dubs coach really believes in Steph as a great leader. However, even coach Kerr can’t deny the fact that the Warriors had a pretty shaky start this season. As a leader, Steph Curry will get the blame. But the Dubs Nation knows that Dray Green and Klay Thompson have not really supported Steph well this season so far.

That’s why there was even a campaign on X with the tagline “Get Curry Some Help.” Later, Klay Thompson looked like coming back stronger, and the Dubs started rooting for the Splash Brothers again. Moreover, the Warriors dropped to the 11th seed at one point. They were 10-14. Later, the Splash Brothers helped the Dubs to make it 15-15. However, a .500 record is not enough to see the Warriors make the postseason.
