“I play every game like it’s my last, regardless of who’s in front of me. That’s my job, and my job is to worry about my team, and that’s all I do.”
And win, win, win! For the past two games, Russell Beastbrook has destroyed the guy in front of him – unanimous MVP Steph Curry – and the 73 win Golden State Warriors. In GM4, he put up a monster triple-double of 36, 11 and 11 while Kevin Durant had 29 & 11 as OKC pulled off their 2nd consecutive 20+ point win with a 118-94 victory.
Steph “Is Not Injured” Curry had an off-night with 19 points on 6 of 20 shooting; Draymond “Might As Well Have Been Suspended” Green had an awful night with 6 points, 6 turnovers and missing 6 of 7 shots; Klay Thompson had a team-high 26 but 19 of those came within a 7 minute stretch in the 3rd quarter.
“We all have to bounce back,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “The good news is, we go home. Obviously we play well at home. The idea now is to go home and get one win. Do that, and we put some pressure on them and we’ll see what happens.”
9 teams in NBA history have came back from 3-1 to win a series. The big question is, can the Warriors become #10 and prevent their historic season from becoming a disappointing one.
“This is a tough situation to be in, but the series isn’t over,” Curry said.
