Warriors coach says Curry doesn’t get enough credit

Warriors coach Steve Kerr credits Stephen Curry for his physicality, conditioning and defensive effort in the Game 2 win over the Boston Celtics.

The Warriors came into Game 2 against the Boston Celtics prepared to change the narrative. After losing Game 1 at home, social media and sports news outlets cast all kinds of doubts on Golden State. As Warriors player Draymond Green said, “it’s so wishy washy”, knowing that if they managed a win in Game 2, the media would be saying something totally different. And of course, he was right.

It was a meaningful third quarter for the Warriors, who outscored Boston 35-14, Stephen Curry scoring 14 of his game-high 29 points in that quarter. On a 19-2 run, Stephen Curry hit back-to-back threes. By the end of the third, the Dubs led by 29 points, 87-64. It was Curry who made the effort and allowed for a breeze to the finish, which they won comfortably, 107-88.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr has been working with Curry for eight years now, and notices how he keeps getting better and better every year.

“He just doesn’t get enough credit for his level of conditioning, physicality, and defense” said Kerr. “Its pretty dramatic, the difference in Steph’s strength and physicality in his body now than from eight years ago when I first got here.”

With that win, the Warriors evened the series to 1-1. The Warriors will travel to Boston where the Celtics host Game 3 on Wednesday, June 8 at 9 p.m. ET.
