Problem with taking a dump early... other than some dumb Grant they actually picked it up recently, but Steph is Steph, so they made up zero ground.

Edit- and now they got couple stops and have it to 8.

Just let Tatum shoot everything.

Maybe sprinkle in a little Kemba. Everyone else just hang out under the rim for a board and a put back.

It’s feels good man to have the greatest goat of all time on your team

Given how much showboating Curry does it would nice to see how he'd have done in the 80s going down the lane one or two times.
He'd have been the best player in the league and the "GOAT" conversation would be,... can anyone catch Curry. He'd have murdered 80s level athletes.

The Celtics with the 10-0 run. Time to show the country what’s up.

Tatum canceled out Curry’s scoring. It’s up to the rest of the Cs to outmatch the non-Curry Warriors. Too bad Jaylen and.TL weren’t available. A full squad could crush this one trick pony of a team

Kemba really exploded to the basket on that and-1. Great to see.

Not sure what is up with Langford. No offensive rhythm lately from him. But if they are to win this game he will need to play a part with his defense. That big wingspan is what’s needed against the Warriors. This kind of quick twitch team makes GW look pretty bad

You think Curry goes down the lane at all back then? And that he's able to fight through hand checks super easy?

Looking at that replay..part of the reason was because he got pushed on his hip by Wiggins.

Has he ever really had offensive rhythm in his NBA run?

I don't know how much he would need to considering there was maybe 2 guys in the league capable of stopping him from getting any shot he wanted on the perimeter. Also, people wildly overrate the 80s, Curry would have been the best ballhandler in the league by a good margin and well above league average in terms of first step. He'd be raining easy 3s and blowing past people left and right. Handchecking is wildly overrated as a defensive tactic, the league is much much better defensively now than it was in the 1980s.

Edit- and to make it more clear... NBA players now have a much more impressive ratio of size/strength/speed than the 80s by a significant margin
