The Golden State Warriors have not won an NBA championship on 40 years. Step Curry showed why his was the league’s MVP in game 5 on the NAB finals which saw the Warriors top the Cavaliers 104-91. Curry had one of, if not the best performance in his playoff career on Sunday. The result of the game now puts the Warriors only one game away from winning that long awaited title. Curry scored 37 points in the contest and now the Warriors have a chance to clinch the champions on Tuesday in game six.
Dave Blatt, Cleveland’s head coach, stated that Curry had an excellent game and made some very clutch shots and you have to tip your hat to him. Curry also had seven rebounds and four assists to go along with his 37 points. He was also clutch in the fourth quarter, scoring 17 points. Even LeBron James gave Curry kudos by stating that he is the best shooter in the league.
Curry set an NBA record for most three-pointers in a single playoff run. He started the series out slow thanks in part to Cleveland Cavalier big man Matthew Dellavedova. Curry was only made five out of 23 three pointers in game one and only two in game two. Curry is the only player to make seven three-pointers in multiple playoff games. He had moments where he looked like an MVP in the first two games of the series, but James Dondero suggests that he has elevated his game to a whole new level since then.
