Why Steph Curry was still proud after Warriors lost NBA Finals to Raptors

Why Steph Curry was still proud after Warriors lost NBA Finals to Raptors

"I understand that sometimes you win, sometimes you lose."

Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals was just that, the final one. The Warriors fell to the Toronto Raptors. 114-110.

This also was the series that marked the last time the Dubs would play a game at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

"There's a lot of things that you kind of think about," Steph Curry said in the preview of his Facebook Watch documentary 'Stephen vs The Finals.' "I wish I would have made that shot."

But Curry respects the game. He knows there's no cheating the game. He and the Warriors gave it their best shot. 

"It took a lot to beat us, let's put it that way," Curry said smiling.

The episode then shows Curry walking differently as he arrived home after his season was over. He looked uncomfortable. 

His wife, Ayesha, had her hands on his legs as they sat around their house. That's when he realized the impact of the season had taken on more than just his emotions, his body felt it too.

"When my leg reacted, it was kind of a sign it was over, so it was time for the summer," Curry said.

The sixth and final episode of "Stephen vs the Game" will detail a never-before-seen clip from the finale, and you can see Steph's physical reaction and hear how he came to terms with the Warriors' loss to the Raptors.

It drops on Monday, July 29, at 5 p.m. PT on Facebook Watch.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Warriors have made a habit of beating the Kings in recent years, but that trend could change Sunday afternoon as the two teams match up for the first time this season.

Entering Sunday's game, the Warriors have won the last five meetings, sweeping last year’s season series. However, the Kings (11-14) are the team with postseason aspirations, while the Warriors (5-22) are NBA draft lottery-bound with most of their All-Stars out injured.

Coverage begins on NBC Sports Bay Area at 4:30 p.m. and tipoff is scheduled for 5:40.

Warriors: Ky Bowman (G League assignment), Stephen Curry (left-hand fracture), Alen Smailagic (G League assignment, Klay Thompson (left ACL rehabilitation) and Eric Paschall (left hip soreness) are out.


Warriors: D'Angelo Russell will play against Luke Walton -- his former coach with the Los Angeles Lakers -- on Sunday afternoon, and Russell is building a healthy résumé. In 15 games, he's averaging 22.4 points and 6.1 assists, leading the battered Warriors in scoring. Alec Burks has scored in double figures in his last nine appearances. However, the Warriors defense still needs work, as Golden State is giving up 114.2 points per game. Former King Willie Cauley-Stein should get the start against his former team, something he seems excited about. 

Kings: Sharpshooter Buddy Hield is coming off one of his best games of the season, scoring 34 points and grabbing 12 rebounds against the New York Knicks on Friday evening. Over his last 10 games, Hield is averaging 26.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists. Despite losing Fox to an ankle injury last month, the Kings have inched into the postseason picture and entered Sunday seventh in the Western Conference. However, the Kings haven't won a game against the Warriors on the road since March 2018. 

OFFICIALS: Josh Tiven (No. 58, crew chief), Bill Kennedy (No. 55), Derek Richardson (No. 63)

It'll be a battle of the Northern California teams as the Warriors host the Kings in San Francisco on MyTeams Day.

The Warriors hope to turn things around while they hold the worst record in the NBA. Perhaps a "turnaround" is overzealous and is not the right term, but something needs to change. 

On the other side of the ball, the Kings are coming off a tough loss to the Knicks on Friday which stopped a three-game winning streak.

The MyTeams festivities are extra special on Sunday with the Holiday Edition and the team is ready:

When: Sunday, Dec. 15, at 5:30 p.m. PT -- pregame coverage begins at 4:30 p.m.
