Steph explains how Warriors' final homestand can be trap

Steph Curry high five

The Warriors' final road game of the regular season ended in disappointing fashion Tuesday night.

Golden State led the New Orleans Pelicans by nine points with a little over eight minutes remaining, but lost 108-103.

The Warriors now close out their 2020-21 schedule with six consecutive games at Chase Center.

"Six games at home to finish the season is nice. That is kind of a trap, though," Steph Curry explained to the media Tuesday. "You can let your foot off the gas pedal because you're comfortable being at home [and] seeing our families.

"Being in familiar territory -- you gotta stay locked in mentally on the task at hand to finish out the season strong."

The Warriors on Thursday and Saturday host the Oklahoma City Thunder, who have lost 18 of their last 19 games. Plain and simple, Golden State should smack the Thunder both nights and be 35-33 going into a very difficult back-to-back against the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns next Monday and Tuesday respectively.

The final two games are next Friday vs. the Pelicans and then a showdown vs. the Memphis Grizzlies two days later.

"Enjoy being back in the Bay and sleeping in our own beds," Curry added. "But six games at home, it's not just because we're at Chase and now we have fans back that we can just show up and win.

"Gotta stay locked in and take advantage of the schedule."
