NBA Playoffs – [VF] Curry sends the Nuggets on vacation!


The Golden State Warriors beat Denver (102-98) on their floor thanks to 30 points from their leader Stephen Curry, thus winning their first series of Playoffs since 2019, when they lost in the final against Toronto. Absent from the final stages the last two seasons, the Californian team, NBA champion in 2015, 2017 and 2018, will challenge in the next round the winner of the series between Memphis and Minnesota, in which the Grizzlies currently lead three wins to two. .

The Warriors, who led the series 3-0 before losing Sunday in Colorado, had to fight against a Memphis team once again carried by its Serbian « joker » Nikola Jokic, who scored 30 points. Golden State, however, had more aces up its sleeve. Draymond Green again led the defense perfectly, while Klay Thompson and Gary Payton II, both authors of 15 points, thus perfectly supported Curry, to take over the Nuggets in the last quarter won 32 to 20.

« You could see in the first three quarters that we forgot how to fold a game« said the all-time leading three-point scorer in NBA history, fully recovered from the ankle injury that stopped him a month before the playoffs. »The nerves, the energy, the pressure… It’s been a long time since we felt all that. We still know how to do it, but we had to fight. It’s good to pass“added Curry, 34.
