Disappointed Golden State Warriors vow to get back to NBA Finals stage

Not one of Golden State's All-Star trio plans to watch Game 7 of the NBA Finals again anytime soon, if ever. After two straight losses that have forced a winner-take-all Game 7 in the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night, the Warriors are one game away from either capping the most successful season in NBA history or the greatest Finals collapse.

After taking a 3-1 lead over the fully healthy Cavaliers, the Warriors were on the verge of silencing the noise for the last time. The Warriors lost Andrew Bogut, their starting centre, for the series when he injured his knee in Game 5.

Curry, the first-ever unanimous regular-season MVP, was outplayed by LeBron and Irving in the final three games, and while Green redeemed himself with a tremendous Game 7 effort, it was not enough.

However, while James noted that, "I came back for a reason - and that is to bring a championship to the city of Cleveland", in contrast to Curry, he remained calm about the demands of the moment, noting: "At the end of the day, I go out every single night and give everything I've got to the game".


"I don't know", Curry said when asked how the team should be remembered.

"It's not over", he added. Yeah, somebody definitely jumped in Steph Curry's body this game.

"I blame myself for everything", Green said.

“I thought we were going to take care of business tonight at home, and we just couldn't get it done”.


During Game 6 of the National Basketball Association playoffs on Thursday, Stephen Curry was ejected from the game after throwing his mouthpiece into the crowd in frustration.

"I need to play my best game of the year, if not my career, because of what the stakes are", he added. To be sure, both teams were selling out on defense, challenging each other to the max. I'm out there trying to do the same for my team.

Green said when he returned for Game 6 after his one-game suspension he was on a mission to make amends.

"You look at the history of the league, it would have been really nice to be in that group of teams that repeated", Curry said, "creating that year-to-year special accomplishment".
