Stephen Curry is the most lethal 3PT shooter to have ever played the game of basketball, and there's no doubt that he's a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer. Stephen Curry has defeated many franchises in the playoffs during his career, and he is on the verge of potentially sending the Boston Celtics home in Game 6.
Boston Celtics fan and NBA analyst Dan Greenberg has recently revealed that he has watched the Celtics face superstars like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo in the playoffs, but added that he is more scared of Stephen Curry than any of those aforementioned superstars.
I've lived through huge playoff games against prime Kobe, prime LeBron, Durant, and prime Giannis and somehow the anticipation of facing Steph Curry scares me more than any of them
Stephen Curry is one of the most unique players that the league has ever seen, and there's no doubt that his impact on a game goes beyond just his box score. We have seen him annihilate teams with a barrage of 3PT shots in the past. The same barrage of 3PT shots has often gotten the Warriors back into games despite huge deficits. It is clear that Stephen Curry is one of the most dangerous scorers that the league has ever seen.
The Boston Celtics will have the task of trying to slow down Stephen Curry and avoiding elimination in Game 6. Stephen Curry will surely do his best to avoid a Game 7, and we will most likely see a dominant performance from him. He shot 0-9 from 3PT range in Game 5, and there's no question that he won't shoot like that again.
Stephen Curry must be a tough player to play against, but the Boston Celtics are a good defensive team that is well-disciplined and well-coached. It won't be easy, but there's a chance we'll see them slow him down just a little bit in Game 6, and avoid elimination. However, Stephen Curry has had good games against their defense in this series, and perhaps we'll see another one of those games in Game 6.
