OAKLAND — Stephen Curry was reportedly a little ticked off at all the attention Matthew Dellavedova was getting, with some people calling him a Curry stopper.
There is no Curry stopper.
Curry hit 7-of-13 from three on his way to 37 points in Game 5, leading Golden State to a huge win that has them one game away from an NBA title. He was doing it attacking the basket and knocking down threes. Curry looked like the MVP — and maybe the Finals MVP.
“I thought he was great,” LeBron James said of Curry. “You tip your hat off to a guy like that. He made seven threes. I don’t know, were any of them not contested, hand in his face, falling, stepback off the dribble? I’m okay with that. We’re okay with that. I mean, you tip your hat to a guy who makes shots like that, and he’s the guy that can do it in our league. He’s the best shooter in our league.”
