And despite being on a minutes restriction playing basis due to his recent comeback from injury, he left his mark on the series. He started only the last of the 5 games in the series. But averaged 30 minutes per game as he was crucial in closing out games. 

Although the emergence of Jordan Poole cast doubt over Coach Kerr utilizing Curry, the former MVP showed just why he is still a superstar. He averaged a cool 28 points and 5.4 assists across the series and hit multiple dagger shots in Game 3 and Game 5.
