Stephen Curry was the NBA’s regular season MVP for the second-straight season.
He hasn’t exactly been playing that way during the 2016 NBA Finals.
His Golden State Warriors entered Thursday night’s Game 6 with a 3-2 lead in the best-of-7 series and a victory away from completing a back-to-back championship run. Yet Curry has struggled somewhat — for him — during the series.
It didn’t happen as the Cavaliers forced a Game 7 after another huge game from LeBron James. Click here to check out James’ amazing numbers.
Coming into the game, Curry was averaging 22.2 points per game, down 8 from the regular season. And he’s shooting just 42 percent. Also, his other numbers haven’t been Curry-like — his assist to turnover ratio is 23 to 22.
Game 6 didn’t start well for Curry. He picked up two quick fouls and played just 6 minutes in the first quarter as the Cavs jumped out to a 31-11 lead.
Curry heated up, though.
He ended up fouling out with 4:22 remaining after scoring 30 points. After picking up his sixth foul, he threw his mouth piece and it hit a fan. He received a technical and was ejected. See the video clip below.
It was the first ejection of Curry’s career.
