Games 1 and 5 of the Warriors and Rockets series ended the same way – with a scene stealing performance by Riley Curry. Steph’s adorable 2 year old daughter made her return to the podium after the Warriors eliminated the Rockets on Wednesday night and once again was the focus of the Q&A which probably annoyed ESPN’s Brian Windhorst and Skip Bayless who were both silent on Twitter about the topic last night.
“I think she’s taking advantage of the moment for sure. She’s way too comfortable” said Curry about his daughter.
She also got a head start on generating “aaaaaahhhhs” when she did her Dad’s trademark chest tap and point to the sky celebration after the game and before the conference.
Although Daddy Curry was off on his shot, missing 14 of 21 shots and 8 of 11 3s, he still had 26 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals in the 14 point victory.
RILEY VS LEBRON PT2
Most people probably don’t remember this, but the first time we talked about Riley was 2 years ago during the 2013 NBA Finals. After a horrible first half by LeBron vs the Spurs in GM3, Curry mocked James by posting a vine clip of his then 1 year old daughter dunking and then said she has half as many points as LeBron. I have a pretty good feeling LeBron wont be having too many 4 point halves vs Curry and the Warriors next month and I also have a feeling we will be seeing Riley at another postgame conference in the near future too.
