Stephen Curry warns Warriors what to expect in Game 6 of NBA Finals

Stephen Curry has warned his teammates to expect a hostile environment in Game 6 of the NBA Finals and added the Boston Celtics will come out ready for a physical battle. On Tuesday, the Golden State Warriors beat the Celtics to take a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals.

On Thursday night, the Warriors will have a chance to close out the series and win the title. However, that is easier said than done as the Boston crowd will do their best to push the Celtics and make it tough for the Warriors.

"You just understand what the nerves are like," Curry said. "We understand the specifics of how we need to approach the game from a physicality perspective, our game plan adjustments from Game 5 to Game 6, understanding what the building is going to feel like, that energy, being prepared for it."

Curry shares advice to his teammates

"At the end of the day, once you get out there, you just have to be in the moment," Curry said.

"You got to be present as much as possible, not worry about the consequences of a win or a loss. The only opportunity you have is that 48 minutes. The more you can trick your mind into being in the moment and staying there, that's the best advice I can give anybody in that situation, because it's going to be the hardest game you probably ever played in your career because of what the stakes are." Curry knows what it takes to win an NBA title, having led the Warriors to five consecutive NBA Finals trips between 2015 and 2019.

In those five NBA Finals trips, the Warriors made it all the way three times. After missing out on the playoffs in 2020 and failing to make it past the play-in tournament last year, the Warriors have again returned to the NBA Finals and are just a win away from winning another title.

Curry didn't have a great Game 5 but the Warriors still managed to win. It remains to be seen if Curry can bounce back in Game 6 and lead the Warriors to the NBA title.
