Do not make Stephen Curry angry.

That’s somehow a scarier version of the two-time MVP, and the Los Angeles Clippers found out the hard way Sunday during the Golden State Warriors‘ 105-90 victory as the first-place Warriors moved to 18-2 to start the season.

Curry finished with 33 points, 13 coming in the fourth quarter, and he became fired up early in the frame after a drive on the Clippers’ Terance Mann, who appeared to foul him.

No whistle came, however, and an irate Curry picked up a technical instead.

“I thought I got fouled, so I let my emotions go,” Curry said after the game, via ESPN. “And definitely fired me up, fired our team up – you have to be able to direct that energy into just putting the ball in the basket, obviously, after that.”

“It was as upset as I’ve seen Steph in a long time,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters. “And it was as upset as I’ve been in a long time, too. It’s kind of a miracle that I didn’t get a technical, but it seemed to get him going.

“Whatever it takes, I guess.”

To prove his point, Curry celebrated a made 3-pointer from the left wing four minutes later with a dramatic technical foul reenactment before soaring toward the Golden State bench before a timeout.

Curry upped his scoring average this season to 28.6 points, and the Warriors have won seven straight.
