Stephen Curry confident Warriors will return to Finals next year
In his post-game presser, Curry seemed unfazed by their defeat and failure to complete the three-peat.
"I wouldn't bet against us being back on this stage again next year."

Curry was graceful in defeat as he congratulated the Raptors for their great play. But spoken like a true champion, Curry vows to take his team to the NBA Finals once again.
As always, time can only tell if Curry’s prophecy will come true. But as of now, the odds are stacked against them. Five straight trips to the NBA Finals has seemingly taken a toll on the team.
Durant, who joined three years ago and was a critical part of the two-peat, is down with an Achilles injury and is set to miss the entire season. He’ll also be a free agent in the summer, which places the front office at a predicament.
Moreover, Klay Thompson has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, which would likely sideline him for the majority, if not the whole 2019-20 season. Klay is set to be a free agent as well.
Given all the realities, it would be hard to cling on to Curry’s words. However, he knows better than most of us. Perhaps the Warriors — who have turned into one of the best organization’s in all of sports — have a magic trick up in their sleeve.
