Mini-thread:
I went back and watched as many of the Celtics defensive possessions against Stephen Curry as I could.
Yes, Boston is dropping. Yes, it seems crazy. But what Boston doesn’t want is the ball pinging around and back to Curry for a wide-open catch-&-shoot three.

Steph Curry has now sprained his left foot twice. He couldn’t run on it the first time and immediately exited the game. Last night, he played a handful of possessions on it. It’s part of why he knows it is less serious.

Stephen Curry says he’s playing in Game 4 on Friday. He won’t be 100 percent. Or 90 percent. Maybe not 80 percent. But most of him gives the Warriors a chance to get back into the series. nbcsports.com/bayarea/warrio…5:39 PM

Asked multiple times and ways about how his foot is feeling, Stephen Curry has responded with “I’m good enough to play.” – 2:50 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Stephen Curry asked if this was a regular season game and if he’d sit out: “Hmm…that’s a good question. It depends on where we are at in the season. I don’t really know how to answer that, because the context matters.” – 2:48 PM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Curry said because this foot injury is similar to what happened near the end of the season, he had a good idea of what to expect pain-wise & what to do treatment-wise.
“There’s comfort knowing I’ve been here before, but obviously would rather I don’t have to deal with it.” – 2:46 PM

Stephen Curry said he slept 10.5 hours last night/this morning.

Ker said the Warriors will not practice today, and will use today more as a recovery day instead. Guys who haven’t played high minutes will get some shots up, but big minute-load players — clearly including Curry — will just get treatment. – 2:20 PM

Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1
After 70 years, NBA legislated against defenders giving no room 4 shooters 2 land, erasing untold injuries. Yet It continues 2 allow players recklessly diving on loose prone bodies trying 2 secure ball. Draymond mugged Brown in G3. Horford later hurt Curry. Quick whistle a must!! – 1:50 PM

More on this storyline

Connor Letourneau: Otto Porter Jr. is also good to go tonight. -via Twitter @Con_Chron / June 10, 2022

I love the commentary, but it seems like it would be a lot. You play a game, then you post up and you’re doing the pod … Draymond Green: It’s all business, you know? The way I view my podcast is that I’m operating a business. Like, you can’t get tired of operating your own business, or it fails. So, it’s something that I take as serious as I do basketball. And so, if I’m going to show up for the game, I show up for (the podcast), or it doesn’t work. -via The Athletic / June 10, 2022

According to Warriors forward Draymond Green, who employs the very same flex and is known for his physicality, looks are deceiving when it comes to his longtime teammate. “He is strong. And when I say strong, I mean strong,” Green told ESPN. “Like, if you go in our weight room, and we’re doing dumbbell bench press, Steph is in the hundred [pound] club. Not many people get to the hundred club. His legs [are] super strong. That change happened last year.” -via ESPN / June 10, 2022
