Stats Reveal Just How Clutch Stephen Curry Is in the Playoffs This Season

The Golden State Warriors are the first western conference team to advance to the second round of the playoffs. They defeated the injury-riddled Denver Nuggets in 5 games with Stephen Curry coming off the bench for 4 of them. The death lineup of Curry, Thompson, Poole, Green, and Wiggins was too much to handle for Nikola Jokic all by himself. 

The reigning MVP was exhausted by the end of the game each night doing everything on the court. They are still fairly young and the return of Jamal Murray and MPJ will threaten contenders next season. 

The Warriors will go on to face the winner of the matchup between the Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves. Ja Morant and co eliminated the Warriors in the play-in tournament. In case they emerge victorious over the Timberwolves the second-round series is going to be interesting.
