Click here to read my Tuesday column on the Warriors win in Game 2.
Kerr sounded snippy and frustrated when asked about Curry’s injury during the post game interview. These days players routinely get MRIs for every conceivable injury, so I can’t believe Curry hasn’t had one. My question: why haven’t the results of the MRI been released?
I agree with you about the ankle injury. I think he tweaked his Achilles tendon. I didn’t see any roll.
Couple of thoughts:
Warriors staff and Curry had a good sit down conversation that went something like “You know we can beat this team and we want to play well into June. So let’s be cautious and get this thing right for the long haul.” Then Curry convinced them to let him warm up, see if it was good to go at full bore. And if so, he would play. If not, take the game off. I don’t think the staff would let him play if was risk for further injury. So he started to warm up and decided, not today.
Having said all that, if it is a game 7, he plays. Somehow, some way he wills himself on to the court and plays.
Bravo to the Warriors for winning a very hard fought game. Making only one (maybe two) three pointers in the second half. Slicing and dicing a suspect Rockets defense like fine cutlery. It was a sight to behold.
Until we know more, I am going to believe the Warriors and Curry were cautious at this point.
And they truly believe they can beat this Houston team without him.
Wonderful…they beat up on a woeful 8 seed with two stars who’ve clearly already made plans for the off season.
How many points did Bogut/Ezeli/Speights put on Max Contract Howard? Ridiculous!!!
Whatever injury Curry has…hopefully the dubs sweep the Rockets in Houston without him taking of his street shoes.
They don’t win the conference without him at near 100%
