When two-time MVP Stephen Curry did his usual pregame half court shot Monday his eyes looked dark and dim but there was something about his aura. He was laser focused. Court side guard 'Curtis' in-bounded the ball; Curry missed the first shot, the crowd gasped. After missing the next three he held up one finger, head bobbing to the music...SPLASH!
What a precursor to the game he’d have scoring 36 points in his team’s 96-88 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder winning 4-3 in the best of 7 series.
“No one ever had any doubt we could get this done,” said Draymond Green afterwards about his teammates.
Fans paid as much as $29K for court side seats for this game after the Warriors won Game 6 in Oklahoma City Saturday night and the Oracle fans stayed long after the confetti dropped to see their team receive their Western Conference trophy mid-court.
“We were a mature basketball team that tried our best not to listen to the noise outside,” said Stephen Curry.
“Let’s figure this out let’s go out and take it one game at a time and crawl our way back into the series and see what happens.”
They crawled back winning three in a row silencing all who said they couldn’t do it.
With a two day turnaround the Warriors will host the Cleveland Cavaliers this Thursday, tip-off is 6:00 pm.
