If nothing else, fatigue was a factor for Curry in last year’s Finals. The Warriors fought hard in the regular season to achieve the 73-win season and ended up going to a seven-game series against the Thunder and then a seven-game Finals with the Cavs. That’s a lot of effort expended, especially considering Curry was just coming off of an injury.

Now, Curry is fully healthy and the Warriors’ earned plenty of rest. By the time Game 1 starts, the Warriors will have played just 19 games in the last 63 days. The rest has benefited the guard as he’s been on fire this postseason, averaging 28.6 points while shooting 50 percent from the field, 43 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the free-throw line. Oh yeah, and he’s averaging 5.6 assists and 5.5 rebounds as well.
Kevin Love also struggled from 3-point range, drilling just 1 of 7 from deep. He scored just nine points with 13 rebounds and six steals. The Cavs shot just 12 of 44 as a team from beyond the arc.
The Warriors are well on their way to capturing their second NBA championship in the last three years and have the chance to be the first team in history to go a perfect 16-0 during the title run. The addition of Durant has paid dividends as a matchup nightmare. Though Golden State shot just 48 percent from the field, it made key baskets and stops when the game was on the line.
I have no problem with him doing it, it’s just something from a competitive point, for me, I guess when I played it would have been tough for me to join Detroit. Having said that, he has the ability to do it, guys are doing it, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Game Mens Dez Bryant Jersey As Rivers repeated, he doesn’t have an issue personally with Durant because as a free agent, it’s his choice to go where he wants. But he’s clearly upset with the trend of star players teaming up with other stars to create a dominate force in the league.
