A lot has changed since 2014, especially for the Golden State Warriors. Nine years ago, the Warriors were an unimportant part of the Western Conference, Steph Curry had yet to win an MVP, and Draymond Green had to emerge as the force he has become. That was the year the Warriors and Steph Curry suffered a first-round exit at the hands of Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Since then, the Warriors have become a dynasty, winning 4 rings and Curry became the first unanimous MVP in history. Meanwhile, Paul’s Clippers’ Lob City imploded, squandering a 3-1 lead against the Houston Rockets in 2014 and suffering one misstep after another as they never fully realized their potential.

And tonight, with the Warriors facing the Phoenix Suns, Steph Curry rubbed some salt in Chris Paul’s wounds, reminding him of a time long gone.

“This isn’t 2014 anymore.” Curry told Paul.

With the Golden State Warriors leading by 20, 59 to 39, Curry led the team over the Suns legend, beating him off the dribble before being fouled by DeAndre Ayton.

This meeting between the Warriors and Suns and Steph Curry and Chris Paul is their 55th time against each other. Curry has gotten the better of Paul 31 times, but he still considers this moment as a small emotional victory.
