Drawing motivation from the most improbable settings has been forged in the Golden State Warriors and especially Stephen Curry.

Curry, 35, has won four NBA championships and is the defending Finals MVP. A handful of Game 7 contests along the way. However, it does not get old.

“We’re defying the odds by still playing at this high of a level,” he said after pouring 50 points in the deciding Game 7 versus the Sacramento Kings in Golden 1 Center on the latest edition of NBA Sundays, “I know everybody wants to see you fail. That’s kind of the nature of where we’re at right now. We love when we still prove a lot of people wrong. It’s part of our vibe now.”

His 50 points were the most scored in a Game 7 in NBA history. Shooting 20/38 from the field did the trick. Additionally tallying eight rebounds and six assists helped the reigning NBA champions dominate the second half of Game 7.

“He’s Steph Curry,” explained head coach Steve Kerr, “He’s that good. His approach to these games is that he is going to go down swinging. He took 18 threes. Just one turnover. Because he had space, he was able to attack and be really aggressive.”

Moving from the Quarterfinals to the Semifinals of the Western Conference, the Warriors will face the Los Angeles Lakers in the next best-of-seven series. Game 1 will be held in San Francisco’s Chase Center Tuesday.
