‘He’s that guy, he’s him!’ Steve Kerr hypes up Steph Curry ahead of play-in tournament quoting Lakers star

Stephen Curry‘s incredible talent and on-court aura have turned many into his fans including head coach, Steve Kerr. The Golden State Warriors will face the Sacramento Kings in the play-in tournament on Tuesday. Ahead of the game, Kerr had high praise for the team’s superstar.

Before the team heads to Sacramento for the game, Steve Kerr stopped by for a press conference at Chase Center. Looking back at the season, the coach expressed his admiration for Curry with a hilarious impression of a Los Angeles Lakers star.

He’s one of the great clutch players in the history of the league…Steph Curry is Steph Curry… He’s that guy. He’s him. I think Austin Reaves said Steve Kerr at a press conference

Last year, the Golden State Warriors faced the Sacramento Kings in an amazing first-round series of the playoffs. The teams went head to head as they were tied at 3-3 in game six. However, the Warriors’ main man came to the rescue and shook the NBA world by scoring 50 points to win game 7. The performance is without a doubt one of the bests of playoff Curry.

As Kerr said, Stephen Curry‘s incredible resume allows him to win Warriors’ games in critical times. His experience and accomplishments over the years are the reason the athlete is efficient in the final moments of a game. Both the teams are now competing in an elimination game, fans will look forward to what Curry does in the crucial matchup.

Steph Curry says the play-in game will have Game 7 environment

The competition in the Western Conference is expected to be tough every year. However, this season, the competitiveness in standings has taken to a different level. Even the bottom teams in the play-in category are well above .500.

Last year, the Warriors were the 6th seed with a 44-38 record. This year, with a 46-36 record the team has fallen to the 10th seed. The close competition in the play-in game reminded Steph Curry of last year’s Warriors vs. Kings Game 7. The star expressed that similar things are at stake for the elimination game.

Everything else built up to that Game 7, this is technically a Game 7-type environment in the same building. So, we gotta do it again. . Stephen Curry at the post game press conference

The Warriors did win their last game without Curry but the win against the Kings is the most important of the team’s season. As most of the players on the roster are healthy and available, there is a high chance the team will perform as a unit in the crucial game. Having said that, the Dub Nation will certainly have Curry as their main hope.
