Warriors Are Contenders Even Without Curry

Warriors Are Contenders Even Without Curry

Curry has a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee, an injury he suffered during a 106-94 win against the Atlanta Hawks on March 23.

If Curry believes he's ready for game 2, and the training staff is confident in his rehabilitation, he'll be playing in game 2. "He's been very good at being all-inclusive with our guys - going to dinner, talking about the game, talking about what they need to do to make us competitive in this series".

After a tight and high-scoring first quarter, the Warriors pulled away to crush New Orleans by 22 points in Game 1 and assert their dominance over the sixth-seeded Pelicans.

Curry has a history of returning to the court from injury and finding his groove immediately. I've just been thinking about that, just worrying about how he feels not playing, " reigning Finals MVP Kevin Durant said. "I'm not saying it's guaranteed to happen, but he puts in the work and prepares himself right to be put in those positions". This, of course, comes as a surprise to many, but not to all.

Curry participated in his first full-contact practice in more than a month last Thursday and then scrimmaged Friday 5-on-5.

So while the Pelicans' breakneck style mostly worked during the regular season, when they played the league's fastest pace - 102.73 possessions per game, compared to the Warriors' fifth-best mark of 101.5 - Game 1 was a clear sign that it isn't likely to work now.

Davis: "We've just got to play one game at a time". "He came out of it good".

"Especially knowing Steph, I know it's been killing him". "So we'll try to find that balance between being cautious and letting him go a little bit". Now, it's a question of how much time we give him, and that's important. "We're just excited to get back on the floor, suit up tomorrow and play". Curry has also dealt with a right ankle injury this season that kept him out for nearly all of December and for the two weeks prior to the game against Atlanta when he hurt his knee.

The 76ers began the season at 150-1 to win a championship, per OddsShark, equal to the Utah Jazz, who are also still alive. "We made some stuff up on the fly and it got us out of our defensive (schemes)", Davis said.
