Golden State Warriors has been very dependent on the play of Stephen Curry since the Davidson product became an upper-echelon star in the league. The Warriors were always having great offensive firepower around their superstars.
“I think our offense is always a lot of Steph. It all starts with Steph, whether — you know, when KD was here, our offense still started with Steph. That’s the way it’s going to be,” Draymond Green said in the post-game presser of Gm2 vs Celtics.
The Warriors’ superstar went off in the third quarter of the Finals scoring 14 of his 29 points. He had 34 in Gm 1, which the Warriors lost to the Celtics after dropping a 15-point lead.
The Warriors will need more from the rest of the players, especially from Klay Thompson, who ended up shooting 4-of-19 in Gm2 and Jordan Poole, who finished with 17 points, but was a non-factor for most of the first two quarters.
“I think when you’re playing against a team like that, you have to get offense from other places and not just Steph. I think for the most part, we did a pretty good job of that,” Green claimed.
“You know, Klay, what, 4-for-19, had a tough one, but that happens. We know he’ll make shots as this series continues to go on.”
The series will continue in Boston for Game 3 and 4 of the 2022 NBA Finals. Game 3 is on Wednesday night.
