Golden State’s Stephen Curry suffered a late leg injury in Game Three of the NBA Finals on Wednesday but said he did not expect to miss Friday’s competition.
Celtic forward Al Harford climbed over Curry while scrambling for a loose ball in the fourth quarter, the Warriors guard was in pain on the floor but he was able to continue the game.
“Of course there will be some pain, but I’ll be fine. See how I feel tomorrow and get ready for Friday, ”Curry said after the game, the 116-100 Celtic win that gave Boston a 2-1 lead in seven of the best series.
“I don’t think I’ll miss a game. I will use this next 48 hours to get ready. “
Curry said the injury was similar but not as bad as a foot strain in a game against the Celtics in March, which kept him away for a month.
The three-time NBA champion scored a game-high 31 points on Wednesday and called Game Four a “must win.”
“We still think we can win the series. You have to come out with the right intensity and focus in Game Four, ”he said.
Curry’s teammates have not commented on what it would mean to play without him.
“We need him if we want to win this thing,” said Clay Thompson.
“He is our identity.”
The fourth game will be held in Boston on Friday.
