Stephen Curry was a dominant force in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night as the Golden State Warriors blew out the Boston Celtics, 107-88. Curry dropped a game-high 29 points in the win. He had his foot on the gas from the get-go and the Dubs star did not let up.
After the win, Curry said that this is exactly what the Warriors need for him the rest of the way. According to the former back-to-back MVP, he knows that his team expects him to be aggressive against the Celtics, and this is exactly what he intends to do:
“I think this year, there’s definitely a need for me to be aggressive throughout the game, to create, draw attention, get shots up and just continue to apply pressure,” Curry said (h/t Doric Sam of Bleacher Report). “Obviously, these first two games, it’s gone well. I don’t know what it will look like on the road. The rest of the series, it’s just always about being confident with the ball in my hands to make plays.”

Curry also asserted himself in Game 1 and it resulted in a 34-point performance for the Warriors star. That’s now back-to-back strong performances from the greatest shooter of all time and it is clear that he has no intention of easing off.
