Steph Curry collapsed to the Warriors’ floor when he learned Jordan Spieth lost the Masters

Golden State Warriors guard and reigning NBA most valuable player Steph Curry is buddies with 2015 Masters winner Jordan Spieth, their friendship developed, in part, through their relationships as endorsers of Under Armour.

Curry, a nearly scratch golfer himself, had a vested interest in Sunday's outcome of the 2016 Masters. However, with Spieth carrying a five-shot lead into the back nine on Sunday, Curry probably thought Spieth was close to a lock to win a second consecutive green jacket. Then the par-3 12th happened. Spieth didn't win. He lost by three to Danny Willett.

The Warriors were preparing for their Saturday night showdown with the San Antonio Spurs -- a game the Warriors must win if they want to break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' NBA record of 72 regular-season win -- when Curry learned from teammate Andre Iguodala that Spieth hadn't won.

He collapsed to the floor in mild, albeit exaggerated, shock.

Now we'll have to see if the Warriors can hold up their end of the parlay card.
