Stephen Curry owns the 4th Quarters in these playoffs
In these playoffs, we have heard analysts all around fight to decide who is the best player in the playoffs this year. So far, they have crowned the same to Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jayson Tatum, Luka Doncic, Ja Morant, Jimmy Butler. However, everyone keeps forgetting about a 6’2 assassin on the most successful basketball organization of the past decade.
Stephen Curry has been brilliant so far these playoffs. He has led the Dubs to a 10-3 record in the postseason so far. Steph, who people often call ‘not a clutch player’ or more, has been shutting critics up with his actions on the court. He’s leading the league in 4th quarter points this postseason, and has been doing it in style.
