In case you haven’t noticed, Golden State’s Stephen Curry has elevated his game to a new level in the playoffs. He’s averaging 24. 3 ppg, 45% 3 FG, and 9.3 apg. He’s had TWO 22-point 3rd quarters in the Warriors playoff run, including a 44-point performance vs San Antonio last night. The 6th seeded Warriors upset Denver and threw a Game 1 scare into the Spurs.
Curry has been linked to Rajon Rondo in trade rumors (here and here) throughout the past few seasons. I was never fascinated with Curry’s game. I considered him an often-injured one dimensional player. I believe my exact words were:
Curry does nothing for me. Am I missing something?
To be fair, it was last March when we saw Avery Bradley harass Curry into a 6-22 shooting night in a loss to the Celtics. Yes, the same Avery Bradley who couldn’t stick with Raymond Felton in the Knicks series.
