Curry, Durant ready for NBA’s Western Conference finals
How well Golden State Warriors star, Stephen Curry, and Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant play may determine who wins the best-of-seven Western Conference finals, tipping off this morning.
Curry, who last week became the NBA’s first unanimous MVP – his second MVP award in as many seasons – and Durant, who was named MVP three seasons ago, have been spectacular in the post season leading their teams to the Western finals.
Although Curry has sat out six post season games through injury, he remains at his very best, giving the Warriors a much-needed spark on the attacking end.
“They’re an explosive team. They’re clicking right now and found a good recipe to beat a tough Spurs team. That says a lot about how they’re playing right now. Curry said of the Thunder.
On the other hand, Durant shot 50 percent against the Spurs, and his 27 points per 11 postseason games have proven valuable for the Thunder.
“We’ve got to be prepared to guard every set, every type of player. They can play big (line-up) and small. We got to focus on that,” Durant noted.
