Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has cut back on his turnovers this season, and Warriors fans have his mother Sonya to thank.

"Over two (in a game), I owe her some money," Curry told Diamond Leung of the San Jose Mercury News. Curry added that his mom "racked up pretty heavily" when he committed 10 turnovers vs. Phoenix.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr called his assist-to-turnover ratio (60 assists, 15 turnovers) during the team's seven-game winning streak incredible for someone relied on as much as Curry is to score.

Kerr had the following to say about his leader's growth this season:

I mean, it's incredible, really. Because when you have that much talent, and there are so many options for you out there, it's hard to have no-turnover games. He's really walked that line perfectly between attack and manage, and it's been beautiful to watch.

Curry is averaging 3.4 turnovers per game this season compared to 3.8 per contest in 2013-14.
