In a recent interview with ESPN’s Chris Haynes, Curry recalled the critical turnover, one he says he knows “wasn’t a good pass.”
“Yeah, I still think about that (turnover),” Curry said. “(But) in thinking about that game, it’s funny because I know the concept of making the right play, making a simple play, understanding that there are deciding moments in games and the difference between winning a championship or not could be one of those plays.
“(With that said,) I came out in preseason this year and threw a behind-the-back Cheap Jordan Jerseys For Sale pass because I have confidence that I can do it and it won’t change that.”
Curry struggled not only in the fourth quarter of Game 7, but also the series as a whole. After averaging 30.1 points per game in the regular season on 50.4/45.4/90.8 shooting splits (field goal/3-point/free throw percentages), the 2015 and 2016 MVP award winner averaged 22.6 points per game on 40.3/40.0/92.9 splits in the NBA Finals. His turnover percentage went up nearly six percent (12.9 to 18.0) in the series and his assist percentage saw a dramatic drop (33.7 to 20.2).
Overall, the Vikings are rich with individual talent — they did go 8-8 even with all of last year’s problems, and made the right offseason moves to address their biggest flaws. Zimmer is a good coach who built a strong, tough culture. The new U.S. Bank Stadium has created an infectious fan atmosphere with the “Skol” chant catching on. This is an easy team to root for, and the Vikings will be fun to watch more often than not.
The foundation is in place for an annual contender, but the Vikings are still missing some pieces, and perhaps more importantly, need to stay healthy. If they don’t find clarity at the game’s most important position in the near future, they risk squandering their considerable potential.
