The pressure is definitely intense during the NBA Finals, and it has been wearing down key players on both teams. Steph Curry is the latest victim of the moment, suffering from dehydration last night following Golden State’s win. The victory puts them within one of their first NBA Championship since 1975.
Curry put in an impressive showing last night, scoring 37 points in 42 minutes. The Warriors have needed all they have gotten out of the MVP, especially going up against Lebron James, a four-time MVP, who has also been playing extra time and effort. Though severely dehydrated and in pain, Curry quickly received a fluid treatment and will be back for Game 6 tomorrow in Cleveland.
Cleveland point guard Matthew Dellavedova also notably had to receive treatment after Game 3, after clearly going max effort in extended time. This series has required certain players to give extra time on the floor, which has clearly left an impact on them.
