HOUSTON — Steph Curry’s performance Friday night against the Houston Rockets earned Twitter love from two basketball luminaries.
“NEVER underestimate the heart of a Champion‼️‼️’’ LeBron James tweeted after Curry scored 33 points in the second half.
After with Kevin Durant sidelined during Golden State’s series-clinching, 118-113 victory in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals, Dwyane Wade also saluted Curry via Twitter.
“Y’all better stop disrespecting @StephenCurry30 just because he’s a team first guy and is willing to sacrifice in moments doesn’t mean he’s not still a beast.’’
Curry looked mortal during first five games of the Western Conference semifinals and his subpar shooting turned him into a target.
