Usually, coaches give their teams days off when they're coming back from a long road trip or because they've been playing hard for a number of days in a row and need a rest.
But for the Golden State Warriors, coach Steve Kerr decided to cancel practice to give the team a chance to recuperate after celebrating Steph Curry's 30th birthday.

It's understandable the players needed a day to relax. With a superstar like Curry, you know a 30th birthday party for him was off the charts.
Turning 30 years old is a milestone for many people, but it's a bit different for athletes. Turning 30 in sports typically means the start of the end of your prime. But Curry didn't want to think about it that way, so how do you have fun on your 30th? You pull up on a YACHT!

What a way to celebrate. No wonder why the players needed the day off. After a party on a yacht, how could you practice the next day?
The day off comes at the right time for the Warriors, having lost two consecutive games and falling two games back of the Houston Rockets for the top seed in the Western Conference.
A yacht is nice, but Curry would probably rather see his team win another championship this season.
