Stephen Curry: B

After starting the game 1-10 on field goals, Stephen Curry really turned his game up a notch.

Despite being double teamed by the Nuggets every chance that they could, he managed to put up 19 points and nine assists, to go along with four rebounds.

Curry’s 19 points might not seem like a lot due to his recent scoring barrages, but they all came at critical times, and none were bigger than his 3-pointer that he buried in the corner to tie the game at 95-95 with 14.7 seconds left in the game.

The young superstar’s huge 3-pointer will be marred by Miller’s game-winner, but it was one heck of a shot and it just goes to show that nothing scares the “Baby-faced assassin”, he will always put up a fight.

All in all, Curry’s playoff debut was respectable, and fans should expect far bigger things for him in the next game.
