Yes Stephen Curry he does not take the MVP, I don’t know what it will take for him to do it. The Golden State Warriors star wrapped up the regular season with a new legend display: 46 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds and 9 triples. The Warriors beat Memphis (113-100) and secured eighth place in the Western Conference, which will allow them to play the play-in tournament against…The Lakers?
His 3-pointers in the closing minutes put an end to Memphis’ hopes of stealing eighth place on the final day of the regular season. It was a show.
STEPHEN. CURRY. 😤

Golden state, as the eighth seed in the Western Conference, the final postseason pass will be played against the seventh seed, which at this time is Los angeles lakers. Whoever wins will face the Utah Jazz or Phoenix Suns in the first round of the postseason. And whoever loses must play a life or death game against the winner of the Memphis Grizzlies-San Antonio Spurs game, with the last playoff spot on the line. This is the play-in tournament.
The game will be played this Wednesday in primetime. If it’s not Golden State Warriors vs Los Angeles Lakers, it will be Golden State Warriors vs Portland Trail Blazers. Everything will depend on the combination of results between those involved in this Sunday: For the Lakers to be saved from playing the play-in, they will have to beat New Orleans and wait for a Portland loss to Denver. It will be enough for Portland to beat Denver or with an Los Angeles loss to qualify directly for the Playoffs.
Stephen Curry and the No. 8 Golden State Warriors will play on Wednesday night in the most anticipated NBA play-in game in league history. Opponent still TBD.
It will be the Lakers if LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Co. wind up No. 7 in the West after tonight’s play.

There is no doubt that what has been achieved in the regular season is just the beginning. Stephen Curry will look for the “complete ticket” to the Playoffs and will force the big favorites of the Western Conference to have to pass over him in order to win the title. Steph is crazy. Steph is basketball.
46 pts | 7 REB | 9 AST
