There was a lot of speculation about how Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors would perform in these NBA Finals.
Would it be the classic Curry we all know and love, capable of sinking wild three and two-pointers from a distance while putting opponent on skates and sailing through the defense?
Or would it be the Curry that popped up again and again during the regular season, a little slower and off his game at times?
Well, it’s obvious that we are getting the former and and definitely not the latter.
So far in the series, Steph Curry is shooting 50% from the field, 49% from 3-point and 85.7% on free throws. Uhh, a potential 50-40-90 IN THE FINALS????

Right now, Curry is shooting 50% from the field in these Finals, while also landing 49% from the three-point line.
He is also sinking 85.7% of his free throws too.
That means that he is on the verge of making a 50-40-90 stat line for the Finals, which is a ridiculous feat.
And one that is so classically Curry.
The Baby-Faced Assassin
There is a reason why people call Curry the greatest shooter in the history of the NBA.
This guy can just sink a basketball.
It doesn’t matter where he’s at on the court or who is blocking him – he finds a way to make the shot.
This is what makes him so dangerous to practically any other team in the league.
He is able to weave his way through most defensive lineups and get to his spot, regardless of who is blocking him.
He’s been doing that again and again with the Boston Celtics.
They are the best defensive team in the entire NBA but Curry has still been having incredible nights against them.
In fact, he’s been far and away the greatest player on his team.
Will the Celtics be able to slow him down in Game 5?
If not, he could hand the Warriors a major lead in the series.
