The first round of the 2013 NBA playoffs are well underway and there are many story lines so far. The Golden State Warriors are tied 1-1 in their series against the Denver Nuggets and Stephen Curry has carried the team so far.
The only reason why Golden State lost game one was because Andre Miller was on fire. In Game two, Curry carried the Warriors to victory scoring 30 while dishing 13 assists.
Curry will be the key to the Warriors making a run for the NBA Finals. If he fails to step up and perform, his team won’t succeed. However, if he hits his threes and has games like yesterday’s game, then Golden State has a legitimate chance of making the finals.
Also, in order for Curry help the Warriors to victory, he needs to make sure to not mess up his ankle. His game one performance was affected by a tweaked left ankle not his right ankle. If you recall, he had surgery on his right ankle so it was a relief for the Warriors that Curry did not hurt his right ankle. His left ankle seemed fine in the second game of the series as was literally on fire.
Curry averaged 22.9 points and 6.9 assists during the regular season. Look for Curry to step up in the playoffs and carry the Warriors to the NBA Finals. The Warriors success in the playoffs and into the NBA Finals relies heavily on Curry. Curry carried Davidson College, and he can do the same thing for Golden State as well.
