For the first time in their five-straight NBA Finals appearances, the Golden State Warriors find themselves down two games, with the Toronto Raptors on the brink of sealing their first NBA championship.
Golden State Warriors are going into the Game 5 against Toronto Raptors with 3-1 deficit and ahead of the game, Warriors’ point guard Stephen Curry has spoken out on the deficit.
“I think after Game 4 it was a tough vibe in the locker room,” Curry told reporters. “Just because you lose two in a row at home, nobody likes that feeling at all especially in the Finals and it’s kind of a little self-reflection, ‘what do we need to do? What do we need to correct?’ for us to stay alive.
“But I wouldn’t say we’re down it’s mostly just we’re anxious for tomorrow to just get out there and play a great basketball game and I think we’re confident in the fact that we can do that and our best bet for us is just to block out as much noise as possible, have a great practice today where we hone in on the details that we need to correct and really come with the right mindset of the energy and effort we need to play with, with our backs against the wall.”
“We know we can do it, it’s just a matter of proving it.”
Game 5 is scheduled on Monday, June 10 at 9 p.m. ET.
