Stephen Curry says Warriors ‘understand’ what Celtics are ‘capable of’
The Boston Celtics may be in a funk right now, but Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry says the Dubs can’t look past Boston because they know what the C’s can do when they play their best.
In what could be a Finals preview — although it doesn’t look that way right now — Curry says the Celtics are going to be a hungry team on Tuesday and the Warriors are focused on beating them:
Steph Curry on the Celtics:
"Right now we're focused on Boston. They’re a team that's going to be hungry. Extremely talented. They just haven't put together wins, but we understand what they're capable of."

The Celtics have a lot of talent on their roster, which is why everyone is so shocked they haven’t looked elite this season.
Kyrie Irving is one of the best players in the league and always gives Curry and the Warriors problems. Jayson Tatum is a gifted young scorer, Al Horford is a sound two-way big, Marcus Smart is one of the best one-on-one defenders in the league, and Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier bring energy and scoring off the bench.
For some reason, though, the Celtics just haven’t been able to put it together this season. However, Boston is still capable of defeating the Warriors because of the pieces on the roster. Any team can play elite for one night in the NBA.
