Steph Curry can do a lot of impressive things on a basketball court, but winning a jump ball against San Antonio Spurs rookie Victor Wembanyama isn’t one of them.
Curry amazingly entered the midfield circle for the Warriors’ opening tip. Pre-season final against Spurs at Chase Center, giving up 13 inches to the 7-foot-4 Wembanyama.
Of course, the Spurs won the opening tip.

As the Warriors keep their eyes on the finish line in the preseason slate, they had a little fun at Wembanyama’s first game in the Bay Area.
The chances are good Curry and Wembanyama won’t meet for jump ball again…unless they get embarrassed during a regular season meeting.
