The Warriors find themselves down 3-2 and facing elimination in the Western Conference Finals after an ugly loss to the Rockets.
Man this game was a tough pill to swallow.
Boston is one win away from the NBA Finals after crucial home victory.
In a do or die Game 5, the Boston Celtics continued their homecourt mastery in a 96-83 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Boston now has a 3-2 lead as the series moves back to Cleveland for Game 6. The Celtics improved to 10-0 at home during the 2018 NBA Playoffs with the win.
Curry exploded for 35 points in Golden State’s Game 3 beatdown of Houston. If he’s back for real, the Rockets (and everyone else) should be on alert.
Stephen Curry had been quiet early in Game 3 on Sunday. He had just nine points on 3-of-11 shooting in the first half of Game 3 against the Rockets, and he was 1-of-7 from downtown and, at that point, just 3-of-20 from deep for the entire series.
If Boston can’t win on the road, then it sets up an enormous Game 7 against a nearly unstoppable LeBron.
What the Boston Celtics have done in this NBA postseason — without Gordon Hayward all year, without Kyrie Irving since the last weeks of the regular season — is completely and utterly impressive, full stop. But it’s worth noting that the success they’ve accomplished has mostly come at home, which makes Saturday’s results not too surprising.
The Boston Celtics guard went from a panned NBA Draft pick to the star of a dominant playoff team.
The iconic image of Terry Rozier so far is of the Celtics guard floating in mid-air before throwing down a hammer dunk with LeBron James trailing behind him. It was a brave, audacious, statement dunk in the third quarter of the Eastern Conference Finals against one of the greatest chase-down block artists of all time.
The Curry 5 “Wired Different” is the first full release of Stephen Curry’s fifth signature shoe.
Stephen Curry may have struggled in Game 2 against the Houston Rockets, but on Friday, he and Under Armour dropped the latest Curry 5 sneaker. It’s the first widely available version of shoe. In March, Under Armour released 314 pairs of the “Pi Day” Curry 5 on Curry’s birthday.
