Stephen Curry vs Marcus Smart: Fear or desire for revenge?

A lot has already happened since March 16, however, that night something happened that may have a lot to do with the development of the NBA Finals since that time the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics faced each other at the Chase Center in San Francisco, California.

On that occasion Boston obtained a marvelous victory by a score of 110-88, however, that was not even remotely the story of the game because in the second quarter, the eventual Defensive Player of the Year, Marcus Smart fell on the left leg of Golden State’s star point guard, Stephen Curry.

A painful injury for Stephen Curry

Not only was “Chef” unable to return to the game, he also had to miss the rest of the regular season with a serious injury diagnosed as a sprained ligament in left foot, raising doubts about his availability for the start of the playoffs.

After the action immediately, Warriors coach Steve Kerr went to Smart directly to protest what he considered an extremely reckless action, although he later said he didn’t want to confuse reckless with dirty, but the damage had already been done.

When the Warriors and Celtics meet again this Thursday, June 2 at the same location as that incident for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, it will also be the first time Curry, Smart and Kerr will meet again and there is bound to be a lot of good vibes between them.

Key matchup in the 2022 NBA Finals

In terms of what will happen on the court, it is highly likely that we will see a lot of Smart covering Curry, for two main reasons, the first is that both are the best weapons of their teams defensively and offensively and the second is that both share the point guard position.

Will Curry be afraid of Smart or will revenge fuel his pride as he seeks his first Finals MVP award?

The answers to this and other big questions are soon to be answered.
