Kounde reacts to Curry's performance

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Barcelona defender Jules Kounde has been left impressed with Golden State Warriors point Guard, Steph Curry, following his Game 7 performance against the Sacramento Kings.

Curry made history last night by becoming the first NBA player to score 50 points in a Game 7 encounter.

Kounde, who was watching the Series took to social media to react, claiming Curry was toying with the Kings.

Klay scores 30 as GSW beat Lakers

There was a moment during the Warriors’ series-opening loss to the Lakers when it seemed as if Klay Thompson would never make a shot.

In Game 2, it felt like Thompson might not miss.

Thompson scored 19 of his 30 points in the first half, and Golden State beat Los Angeles 127-100 on Thursday night to even the Western Conference semifinals at one game apiece.
