BINALIKAN ni Stephen Curry ang 2019 Western Conference semifinals, wala raw halos naniwala noon na kakayanin ng Golden State Warriors ang Houston Rockets.
Sa Houston ang laro, at unang salang na wala si Kevin Durant matapos abutin ng right calf strain sa Game 5.
Scoreless si Curry sa first half pero pumutok ng 33 sa second para akayin ang Warriors sa 118-113 series-clinching win.
Palabas ng court, nakailang hiyaw si Curry hanggang makarating ng locker room.
“I was hyped because I heard all the noise going into that game,” pahayag ni Curry sa Stephen vs. the Game sa Facebook Watch. “Honestly, I think we had a little of that f**k you mentality.”
Pigil-hininga raw ang Warriors nang bumagsak si Durant.
“The air came out of the entire building when they saw him limping,” aniya. “Took a timeout, everyone kind of looked at each on the bench. We knew what we had to do. Everybody had to step their game up, and those next 14 minutes were pretty awesome in terms of responding.” (VE)
