Hit in the leg after ground contact with Al Horford, Stephen Curry did not play the last two minutes of the game in Boston on Wednesday, but the Golden State point guard is not too worried about the rest.
History repeats itself… On March 16, Stephen Curry injured his ankle on the floor of Boston, after contact with the ground with Marcus Smart. The Golden State point guard had then missed the last twelve games of the regular season. This Wednesday, still in Boston, during Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the record holder for 3-point shots found himself under Al Horford when five players were on the ground to recover the ball four minutes from the end. Boston then led 110-98. Draymond Green grabbed Marcus Smart to get him out of this “scramble”, picking up his sixth foul on the way, while Curry remained on the ground for several seconds, complaining about the leg. “The injury is similar to March, but not as severe. We’ll see how it responds, but I don’t think I’ll miss a game. We will take advantage of these 48 hours to be ready, ”said the 34-year-old leader after the meeting.

Over 26 points average for Curry in the play-offs
“I saw him dive to the ground. So I picked up a foul by pushing Smart back, because Stephen was screaming at the bottom of the pile and I wanted to clear his legs, ”said Draymond Green, the first witness at the scene, for his part. Despite this fault, Stephen Curry remained on the floor for a little less than two minutes, then Steve Kerr released him definitively. ” It wasn’t the injury that forced him out of the game, but I pulled him out because we were at -14, with two minutes to play and we weren’t going to catch up. We will know more about his injury on Thursday, ”reacted the Californian coach. While the Warriors are down 2-1 in these 2022 Finals, Curry’s possible withdrawal for the next game or games would be a disaster. Best player in the franchise, he has 26.6 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists since the start of the play-offs.
