Crushed by 39 points (134-95) in Game 5 in Memphis, the Warriors approached Game 6 at home like Game 7, knowing that winning the final game in Tennessee would be very difficult ?
Draymond Green and Klay Thompson did not wish to confirm, but the two men were certainly happy not to extend the series for a seventh meeting.
“I didn’t want to fly again” explains the strong winger. “One of the things you forget about this show is that there’s a four and a half hour flight (between San Francisco and Memphis) and it’s brutal. So I didn’t want to fly back. It was more like avoiding flying than playing in Memphis.
The plane is also what the rear has put forward.
“It’s a long flight to Memphis. It’s really long, and we spent a lot of time at the Hyatt (the Memphis hotel where the team is staying). Although I love playing outside, tomorrow will be a well-deserved rest day and at our age we are taking all the rest we can get. Even though it wasn’t Game 7, there was definitely that feeling when it came time to win. We deserve to take a few days off. »
Especially since the Suns and the Mavericks are going to play Game 7, before the conference final…
“I’m just gonna be a fan” explains Stephen Curry on this final match, which he will obviously watch. “This series has been amazing. Teams have won every home game, right? We’ll see what happens in Game 7. It’s quite entertaining, the level is high. They’re two different teams, so it’s a bit difficult to… I’ll probably talk about it on Monday or Tuesday when we know who we’re going to play against. But I’ll just be a fan and enjoy watching two games on Sunday (there will also be Game 7 between the Bucks and the Celtics), knowing that we have four days off, which is quite special. »
