Let’s rewind to the third quarter, where the Cavaliers outscored the Golden State Warriors 34-31. The Cavs played a perfect quarter against a Warriors team that usually dominates third quarters, and had all the momentum going into the fourth. And, that is when Perkins happened:
Steph Curry was understandably upset that Perkins didn’t move his legs out of the way, and let him know about it.
After the little exchange, Curry put on a show in the fourth quarter, scoring 16 points, including 5 three’s and 1 FT. Chef Curry ended up splashing a Finals record nine three-pointers, while finishing with 33 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds.
Prior to the dust up, this was Curry’s 3rd quarter line: 0-5 FG shooting, 1 point (tech FT made). You be the judge…
Perkins should’ve saved his tough guy act for someone else tonight. By going at Steph, he literally woke up a sleeping giant and caused his team to get blown out.
