Curry has agreed to a five-year, $201 million contract extension with the Warriors, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports. Curry's contract is the biggest for an NBA player of all-time, and it does not include any options, so it locks him in as a Warrior for the duration of the pact. Curry's scoring average may have dipped almost five points last season, but he was coming off one of the top offensive campaigns of all time, and he showed down the stretch and all the way to the Finals that he is still among the top players in the game.
Curry tallied 34 points (10-20 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 12-15 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals over 41 minutes during Monday's 129-120 win over the Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Although he was cold from downtown for the second straight game, Curry was excellent from in front of the arc (8-for-11) and very effective setting up teammates for scoring opportunities with strong passing. He remained aggressive as well, with his 15 visits to the charity stripe serving as a postseason high. The All-Star sharpshooter often ceded the mantle of top scorer to Kevin Durant but demonstrated he could be a pass-first point guard when warranted, posting four games with double-digit assists in the Finals and averaging 6.7 dimes overall in the postseason. He'll naturally serve as a pivotal part of Golden State's defense of their second title in the last three years next season.
Curry provided 14 points (4-13 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and two steals across 38 minutes in a 137-116 Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers on Friday. The 14 points were Curry's fewest of the postseason, and his struggles were magnified by the immense success his counterpart at point guard, Kyrie Irving (40 points), enjoyed on the evening. Still, with averages of 28.6 points (on 49.1 percent shooting), 6.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 4.5 three-pointers and 1.9 steals per game in the playoffs, it's hard to criticize the two-time MVP too much for what has otherwise been an impressive run the last few weeks. He should benefit from the series returning to Oakland, where he shot 46.6 percent from distance during the regular season, compared to a 35.6 percent mark in road venues.
Curry scored 32 points (7-17 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 14-14 FT) to go along with 11 assists, 10 rebounds and one steal across 36 minutes during Sunday's 132-113 victory over the Cavaliers. Curry was terrific as a playmaker again, making several highlight reel assists, and he rounded out his first career postseason triple-double with a strong showing on the glass. He struggled a bit from the field but still came within one point of Kevin Durant's team lead in scoring thanks to a perfect effort from the foul line. Curry is averaging 30 points, 10.5 assists, eight rebounds, five treys and two steals per game this series and will look to keep it up in Game 3 on the road after helping his club protect home court.
Curry totaled 28 points (11-22 FG, 6-11 3Pt), 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals over 34 minutes during Thursday's 113-91 win over the Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA finals. Curry was the ideal complement to Kevin Durant, bedeviling the Cavs from long distance while Durant did plenty of damage closer to the basket. The All-Star sharpshooter put together one of his best all-around efforts of the postseason, as he established a playoff best in assists while turning in his second-highest rebound total as well. He continued to have the hot hand from the field, as Thursday marked his sixth straight game with at least 50 percent shooting. Curry will look to keep the momentum going as the Warriors attempt to take 2-0 series lead on Sunday night.
