Stephen Curry was brilliant from the opening buzzer until the remaining minutes of the 4th quarter as he delivered NBA Finals MVP numbers with 47 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists, and 2 steals.

His monstrous effort however was not enough to win against the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Curry was playing with a depleted lineup as Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Looney are all injured and didn’t play. He had little help from his team as only Green and Iguodala scored in double figures 17 and 11 respectively.

Curry did everything he can making plays, hitting the big shot, hustling and diving for loseballs but Green’s intensity was not there, the perimeter defense to stop the outside shooting of the Raptors did not rotate fast enough.

On a positive note, the Warriors was always in striking distance of only trailing between 7 and 13 points throughout the game.

Even if KD, KT and KL comeback and the Warrios win the title, Curry winning Game 2 for the Warrios and tonight’s performance is enough for him to win the NBA Finals MVP award.

The Portland Blazers fought hard throughout the game even leading by as much as 17 points towards the end of the third quarter, however the Warriors with their Championship composure managed to climb back and win 119-117 in Overtime.

Draymond Green explains their basketball mindset — “We just really understand what we’re capable of on both sides of the basketball . We’re never out of the fight. That’s just always our mindset.”

The Warriors is the first team since the Celtics in 1950s to make it to five straight NBA Finals and were able to do it despite having three star players sideline due to injury — Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, Andre Iguodala.

Both Stephen Curry and Draymond Green had triple doubles making is the first time two players achieved such a record in a single playoff game.

Green scored 18 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists, while Curry put in 37 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists.

Stephen Curry has to this say about the game — “We’ve been here before. We’ve seen everything, every experience you can imagine. So we relied on that.”

Damian Lillard, who tried to lead his team and earlier said someone will eventually comeback from a 3-0 deficit, scored 28 points and 12 assists for Portland. He had a chance to send the game into 2nd overtime but missed a 3-point attempt as the buzzer. Meyers Leonard scored a career-high 30 points and 12 rebounds.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts expected Lillard for a buzzer-beating 3-pointer — “Yeah, I did. I thought it was going to — kind of meant to be, when he shot it, it had a good arc. I thought it had a chance.”

The Warriors will face the winner of the Milwaukee Bucks Vs Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals.

in NBA

The Golden State Warriors Vs Memphis Grizzlies was an important win for the Warriors not only as the Warriors got win 71 in the regular season but a confidence and momentum builder as they drive to break the 72 wins of the Chicago Bulls.

Relive this very intense, exciting game as we saw Draymond Green giving the edge for the win.

Warriors 71st Win Probably Sealed the 73 win Run

in NBA

The Warriors has lost the game against Minnesota and earlier before that against the Boston Celtics. The run towards breaking the Chicago Bulls record of 72 wins was not looking good. Was the regular season run finally caught up with the Warriors? Were they tired?

Nonetheless, the game against the Grizzlies was supposed to be an easy one for the Warriors as the Memphis Grizzlies is hanging on at the lower end of the playoff picture, they haven’t been winning in their last 10 games and two of their star players Mike Conley and Marc Gasol are out because of injuries. Apparently, the Grizzlies have a mission of making the Warriors work very hard and deny them of breaking the 72-win regular season. For a moment there Memphis looks like it will be upsetting the Warriors as they led by ten points with the just 6 minutes left. For the Warriors, this is the game they need to breathe life to their run and give them the confidence to finally break the home winning streak of the San Antonio Spurs.

Draymond Green’s excellent all-around play helped them push forward to win their 71st game on the slimmest of margin 100-99. 71 wins in a single regular season is a lot and most teams can only dream of reaching this milestone.

This was a hard fought game as the Warriors had to climb back from 10 points in the last 6 minutes and were still 5 points down in the last 2 minutes and 48 seconds in the game. The game winning shot was a follow-up tip-in by Draymond Green off a Stephen Curry layup miss while having 4 Grizzlies defending for a defensive rebound. On the next play, Draymond forced Randolph to shoot an airball.

Grizzlies still had the opportunity to deliver a heart-breaking upset as Lance Stephenson had two shot attempts in the last 10 seconds, the final shot came at .8 seconds but couldn’t deliver the points.

Even when Memphis seemed to be in control of the remainder of the 4th quarter, the Warriors required the contribution from four players – three points from Curry, Igoudala, a driving two points by Green, another three on the top right key by Harrison Barnes, and the go ahead two points while having four Grizzlies on the defensive end.

When the Buzzer sounded, the Warriors won their 71st game and 33rd road game, an achievement that puts them in the history books only occupied by the Chicago Bulls 1991-1996.
