Steph Curry needs a big game tonight for Golden State if they want to force a Game 7 on Sunday
The Golden State Warriors have made the Western Conference Finals in six of the last eight postseasons. A win tonight would force a Game 7 on Sunday with a chance to reach the WCF for the seventh time in nine seasons. No team in the West has been more dominant in the last decade than the Golden State Warriors.
Curry and his teammates will have their backs against the wall tonight. These are the types of games that Curry lives for and he never shies away from the spotlight. He knows that a dominant performance from himself could propel the Warriors to a win in Game 6. The four-time NBA champ has only scored over 30+ points one time in the Western Conference Semi-Finals vs the Lakers.
It would be a perfect night for Curry to go for 30+, but he’ll need the help of his teammates if the Warriors want to win. The tip-off is at 10:00 pm EST on ESPN.
