Golden State Warriors fans were shocked by the manner in which their team lost to the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. It was an undeniably tough pill to swallow for Dub Nation and, unsurprisingly, this was the exact same feeling in the Warriors’ locker room after they let the Celtics steal away a win on their own home floor.

Warriors superstar Stephen Curry talked about his team’s disappointing loss and admitted that his team was deflated after Game 1. The former back-to-back MVP sees nothing wrong with this show of emotion, particularly after such a disheartening turn of events:

“If you’re not down about it, and you’re not in your feelings then that’s a problem because then it doesn’t matter,” Curry said, via NBA on Twitter. “You have to feel it. How much it lingers, that’s the test of how you bounce back.”
