On Thursday evening, Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul put Golden State Warriors gunslinger Steph Curry in a blender like Eve 6.
For the sake of clarity, here is the outdated reference made in the lede:
That’s not going to help the Steph Curry is bad at defense narrative.
The Warriors, after losing Game 4, weren’t placing blame on any outside factors, but rather the other opportunities missed during the fourth quarter that led to a hideous 3-of-18 performance from the floor in a 12-point final period.
“That’s not the reason we lost the game. I wish it could have been a better possession at the end,” Kevin Durant said, according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News. “I definitely wish I had that last play back. So I’m going to watch film and see what my options were. Hopefully if I’m in that position again, I’ll be better.”
Curry had one last opportunity with 0.5 seconds left, a decent look that could have gone in with a less rushed approach, but he also won’t blame that for the loss.
“You don’t know how long you can catch, turn and do that whole thing. So maybe rushed it a little bit,” Curry said. “Decent look, but you wish the game didn’t come down to that.”
On Thursday, Chris Paul didn’t really seem to care whether or not Paul, the Warriors, or fans had any thoughts on Game 4. He just wanted to put Curry’s heart in a blender and spin it around like oblivion or something.
Likely something, but that Eve 6 song is from a long time ago, and I forget.
