Stephen Curry dons Raiders jersey after Oakland defeats his hometown Panthers

The Golden State Warriors haven't lost a game since Nov. 4, but point guard Stephen Curry lost a bet on Sunday when the Oakland Raiders defeated his hometown Carolina Panthers at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

According to ESPN's Marc J. Spears, Kris Stone of Under Armour gave Curry a Derek Carr jersey to wear if the Raiders won. Curry, who grew up in Charlotte, has a partnership with Under Armour. Stone is an Oakland native.

After the game, which the Raiders won 35-32, Spears snapped a photo of Curry wearing the Raiders jersey.

The Raiders' official Twitter account later retweeted the photo and added the caption "Everything looks better in Silver and Black."

Curry has publicly supported Carolina in the past, and even received the honor of beating the Panthers' drum prior to Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara last February.

The two-time defending NBA MVP watched Sunday's game from a suite behind the Carolina bench, per Spears. Curry is averaging 26.7 points and 6.1 assists per game for the league-leading Warriors, who entered the week with a 15-2 record.
