After Steph Curry’s 49-point performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder, he is one step closer to securing the scoring title. Curry, who is now averaging 31.9, was able to gain a slight edge over Bradley Beal, who is averaging 31.4.
Steph’s performance left teammate Kent Bazemore beyond impressed. While heaping praise on Curry, he seemingly threw some shade at Beal.
“Forty-nine points in 29 minutes, that’s unreal,” Bazemore said, as per Monte Poole of NBC Sports. “We got guys hurting hamstrings to keep up.”
Bazemore’s comments could be linked to Beal’s 50-point game the same night when he was forced to leave after a hamstring strain.
Although these comments may have been said lightheartedly, Beal and his wife Kamiah Adams-Beal didn’t take the comments too well. Especially since it was coming from a role player who is averaging 6.8 PPG.
“Lol should I let him live or really go off?” Beal taunted
“I stay in my lane!! Focus on BRAD. Idc what another man doing in this league. I’m concerned about me and MY GUYS over here!! Keep that goofy shit over there,” Beal added
Unfortunately, the Warriors and Wizards won’t be facing each other again this season. However, if Beal returns from his hamstring injury with a vendetta, this might not be the last thing he has to say on the matter.
Is Beal overreacting? Or is Bazemore out of line?
