There were a lot of people thinking the Golden State Warriors wouldn’t make it to the Western Conference Finals.
Those people may be rethinking that assumption now.
The Warriors are now up 3-1 over the Memphis Grizzlies, which means they are just one game away from once again returning to the WCF.
A huge part of their current success is due to Stephen Curry, who unsurprisingly is playing terrific basketball.

He was all over the court on Monday night and was making it count everywhere.
Curry was even fantastic from the free-throw line, where he shot 8-of-8 in the last 45 seconds.
Seeing as how the Warriors won by three points, you can tell how important those free throws were.
Curry is a team leader and a vital part of the team’s success.
If they make it to the Western Conference Finals – and beyond – it’ll be thanks to Curry.
Moving Past Memphis
The series against Memphis hasn’t been a total breeze for Curry and the Warriors…but it hasn’t been absurdly challenging either.
Golden State has only lost one game against the Grizz and have seemed to figure out the team.
It’s true that the Grizzlies have lost their best player, Ja Morant, but the Warriors’ domination is undeniable.
They were down for a while during Monday night’s game but they rallied and came back.
Memphis has put up a fight but the Warriors have out-maneuvered and out-smarted them again and again.
This shows that they have what it takes to move into the next round.
Curry has been looking like his vintage, regular self and is no doubt ready to take on whichever team may come next.
Not only do the Warriors look capable of making the Western Conference Finals, but they also look downright eager for it.
