Curry Explained the reason behind the behavioral action of him
Cooler heads prevailed after Poole made the game-winning basket with 1.0 seconds left. And they laughed together outside the Warriors’ locker room. As Poole drew near the current NBA Finals MVP, he even humorously threw his own mouthpiece against the wall.
When Poole chose to shoot a deep 3-pointer rather than restart the offence and add more time on the clock, Curry at the podium explained why he was feeling so furious at the time.
Curry told reporters after the game that it was “critical time in the game and the way our season has gone.” “There are concerns over the heightened sense of urgency that each and every detail counts. I reacted in a way that certainly took me out of the game and put the team in a difficult situation because when you want something so badly, like getting the win and in the fourth quarter, execution, clutch situations, all that stuff does matter”.
“But what really matters in terms of winning are the intentions and the energy surrounding those things. Thank goodness my teammates gave excellent responses. Klay [Thompson] hits hard. JP scored the winning goal in overtime. Good execution was used. There was definitely a sense of urgency, because we needed that one. I somewhat allowed my feelings to get in the way.”
