Golden State Warriors faced Chicago Bulls on Monday and celebrated a 116-102 victory. Stephen Curry, who missed the Warriors’ last few games due to a tailbone injury that he suffered against Houston Rockets, made his return against the Bulls.

Curry recorded 32 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists.

Speaking after the game, the Warriors star told ClutchPoints: “I knew that it was going to be interesting how you can’t really simulate that in practice and workouts. It wasn’t fun, but I got through it. I was able to keep warm and deal with the pain and just play. It is something to manage in the near future, but it will continue to heal as I get some more time.

“The charge that I took was a good play, and I tried to brace myself,” Curry said.

“That is the one that you don’t want to second guess, moves, or decisions on either end of the floor because you are trying to avoid pain. If you are going to play, you just have to play and just have to deal with it afterward. That was my mindset coming back,” Curry explained.
