Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors travel to Cleveland on Thursday night for a potential close-out game in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. With so much at stake, Curry is approaching the game by putting some extra pressure on himself.
Despite winning back-to-back NBA MVPs and coming off of a league championship just a season ago, Curry says Game 6 is the biggest game of his career.
“Yeah, we have a chance to win a championship, so definitely the biggest game, and I’m ready for it,” Curry said, according to USA Today.
“I want to honestly play better and more consistent, but the situation is right now we’re one game away from winning a second championship, and I personally have 48 minutes to do what I need to do to help my team win. So right now you could kind of get lost in (the criticism). But at the end of the day if I’m sitting here tomorrow night with another trophy and celebrating with my teammates, we can talk all day.”
Game 6 is set to tip-off at 9 p.m. ET at Quicken Loans Arena.
