STEPH Curry is hardly putting any weight into the Golden State Warriors getting swept by the Toronto Raptors in their season series in a possible NBA Finals preview.
For the second time in two weeks, the Warriors surrendered to the Raptors, this time a 113-93 decision – against a team that was missing star Kawhi Leonard and playing for the second straight night on the road.
But speaking to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports after the Warriors’ 113-93 loss to the Raptors at Oracle Arena on Thursday, Manila time, Curry still played down the Raptors’ feat.
What the Warriors superstar is basically saying is: try to sweep us again if we meet in the finals.
“We’ll remember what it’s like playing against them, but it’s 0-0 from here,” Curry said. “The sweep doesn’t mean nothing in terms of when the lights are the brightest on the biggest stage in the playoffs. Everything’s different.”
“We’ll remember how tonight was. It’s a tough vibe, but they don’t get any extra points if we were to face them in the Finals,” he added.
Currently owning the best record in the league at 23-7, the Raptors are certainly favored to rule the East if they keep this up. If they do so, they’ll look back to what Curry said and try to prove him wrong.
