Warriors Star ‘Very Likely’ to Come Off Bench in Game 2

Golden State Warriors star player Stephen Curry has been out with an ankle injury. Curry has been out roughly a month. Head Coach Steve Kerr said he is very likely to play in-game 2 of the second round of the NBA playoffs. Kerr also comments that he may be playing with a minute restriction and may even come off the bench.

In Curry’s whole career he has only come off the bench six times. The last time he didn’t start was the 2011-12 season.

Warriors can win without him but they obviously want to get him back in the line up. They can’t rush Curry back in the chance of possibly losing him in the Finals.

Steph is a 6’3 guard from Akron, Ohio.

This past season Steph averaged 26.4 points per game, with 5.1 rebounds and 6.1 assists. His strength is in his shot. His most three-pointers made in one game is 11, one short from tying  the NBA record.

In the 2014-15 season he beat Klay Thompson’s record of most three pointers made in a game by 10 with 286 shots. He then beat his record 2 season after that with 324 in the 2016-17 season, and 402 in the 2016-16 season.

He still holds the record. Stephen Curry has two MVP awards and two championship rings. Curry also holds numerous records at his college, Davidson.
