WNBA star Candace Parker has had quite the year, to say the least. She is fresh off of winning her second career WNBA title with the Chicago Sky and now she may be adding prognosticator to her list of many talents.
Just minutes into Monday’s game between the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors, Parker tweeted that Curry was going to score 50 points against protege Trae Young. When the dust settled, Curry had … a 50-point outing in a 127-113 Warriors win.
Curry finished the night with 50 points on 14-of-28 shooting to go along with 10 assists, seven rebounds and three steals. In addition, Curry connected on nine of his 19 attempts from beyond the arc and was unconscious down the stretch for the Warriors.
Parker pointed out that Curry would have the opportunity to out-duel Young in a matchup between two very exciting teams. Obviously, Curry is always capable of having a stellar shooting night, but its absolutely wild that the Sky star correctly predicted what his stat line would look like before Curry even had an opportunity to get going.
The Warriors are a tough team to beat when Curry is playing at a high level. Once Golden State gets Klay Thompson back from injury later this season, the sky is the limited for this group.
