    Dude when will people learn!? Let that man Steph do Steph. Everytime he is criticized he comes back and shows you why he is the Warriors best asset. No disrespect to KD at all, but this is Stephs team. Was before Kevin, and will be after he goes wherever he goes. Shooters gonna shoot.

    Steph Curry has a better take it to the rim when shots arent falling game than Dame. Klay more steady than CJ. But playoffs are a different animal

    From me watching this is 6 days ago Curry has a jammed finger he is still shooting very well better then most SGs so dude you need to update this video he’s shooting around 30 percent through the playoffs He doesn’t take a lot due to he’s being doubled teamed at half court or rape defending him.

    Lol, curry injury vs the clippers: not matter, he play again. But kd's injury vs the houston he can't play with that kind of injury, no i don't mean to insult kd, but does curry's injury is more vulnerable than kd's injury😂😂😂😅

    I see your point on the technical side of the game but when it comes to crunch time they both rise up to the game.
    I respect your technical point of view but basketball game is played with confidence and heart.

    dude, it's super simple. Before Curry's finger injury he was scoring at 70%TS and after his injury he was scoring at 50%TS.....what is the difference?

    I knew Curry was having a bad postseason so far but Lillard too?
    It seems the playoffs aren’t friendly to small, shoot-first point guards for the most part (Curry, Lillard, Kyrie, etc.)!

    OK Mr. narrator how about if we call you out on the obvious was Steph Curry he dislocated her finger and he has a severely sprained ankle so don’t try and tell us all sorts of everything else is what the problem is he’s trying to recover from injury and don’t tell me it’s not a shooting hand and so it’s not affecting him I am playing ball for almost 50 years and you can attest to the fact that small injuries can have a large affect you’re trying to gloss over it is as if Steph Curry is just lost suddenly give me a break

    2:50 how does harden mess up this shot he just missed,the ball is out of his hands before he even makes contact with harden.

    With Stephen Curry you won’t have to worry. He alway shows up. Damien Lillard on the other hand has choked before. Yeah he did great during our series but it’s been terrible now. Same thing has happened the last two seasons. Portland always chokes.

  • Dean W

    Its obvious that Curry's injuries are affecting his shooting and general play. However he is a gutsy player that will never give up and will fight to the end.

  • A P

    That's what's wrong with these modern players. If their outside shots cant go in, they keep jacking them instead of taking into the hole, or getting fouled and going to the line. Terrible.

  • ReverendDagwood
    ReverendDagwood 5 months ago +1

    that gamewinner lilliard shot was fluke. And bad selection. his hit% loss is simply due to taking longer and longer range attempts. relying on 3s to win is textbook trash gameplan. thumbs *down*

  • Muhammad Ali

    The thing with lillard is russ wasn't playing D and instead hunted rebounds for his triple double which gave damian relatively good looks. The nuggets however are doing the opposite, playing D and having dame take contested threes

    • Grahm Thrush
      Grahm Thrush 5 months ago

      The Rockets winning by 4 points at home is not a "smash". The game could have easily went to overtime, but Curry and KD both missed their 3's to tie the game. Next time watch the actual game.

    It’s called the playoff effect folks. Just look up who are the most dominating forces in the finals, all strong SGs, Forwards and centers. Shooting PGs have no business dominating in the deep playoffs. Curry has been like this in every finals, the only reason he had decent stats was because he stat padded against the bench when the games were basically over or added no impact

    I just need the blazers to win the next 2! If dame sticks with the mid range and attcking the basket. That will give him room to shoot because the defenders will be on their heels.

    Kewawn Jamison 5 months ago

    Him or klay don’t look engaged in these last two games. I say it’s due to the fact of the fouls that are going against them. It’s demoralizing when you get whistled for minimal contact and then go down on offense get fouled and don’t get the whistle.

  • Hadi Da Warriors hater

    What I’m thinking is that Lillard will not try to drive due to the absence of calls. I’m thinking start Rodney at the 3(SF) and Lillard can drive and kick out to Rodney.the Nuggets will leave Harkless and Aminu open. And have exposed Portland’s weakness of shooters at the forward spot. If Rodney starts help doesn’t come then it’s Lillard vs Jokic on a drive. Terry Stotts rotations are the problem in reality he needs Leonard in the floor cause he the best 3 point shooter in the series.
