Curry hilariously credits popcorn for Kings ownage at Golden 1 Center originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area
After a 41-point performance in the Warriors' 122-114 win over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night at Golden 1 Center, Curry suggested his favorite pregame snack could be contributing to his dominance in the arena.
"No, they've got great popcorn, though," Curry told KNBR when asked if Golden 1 Center is his new favorite arena to play in. "So, shout-out to them for making me feel good before the game. I've got a big bucket right here. It makes me happy, so it might carry over to the court."

Curry's affinity for popcorn has been no secret over the years. He declared in 2019 that he has a popcorn "addiction," and the Golden State guard frequently can be seen ranking each NBA arena's offerings from season to season.
The 35-year-old put on another show at Golden 1 Center on Friday night after chowing down on the buttery snack, nearly six months removed from his 50-point masterpiece against the Kings in April during Game 7 of their first-round NBA playoff series.
So, could it be Curry's competitive drive and his dedication to the game that has led to his sustained success at Golden 1 Center? Sure. But then again, it could be the popcorn.
