The Nation is freaking out right now about the news that Steph Curry has a sprained medial collateral ligament and is expected to be out for two weeks. And while this is not good news, exactly, it could be worse; all day long I’ve been bracing myself to hear the dreaded words “season-ending.”
Best-case scenario, the Dubs finish off the Rockets Wednesday and the Blazers/Clippers series goes 7 games. Maybe Steph gets back halfway through the second round; maybe the Stephless Wonders play like they did in the second half of Game 4, in which case they’ll beat everybody anyway. And then we get a well-rested #30 back for the Conference Finals against the Spurs.
Too sunshiny an outlook? Maybe. Want to bet against it?
I’m really hoping they can get er done. Interesting that Paul and lug head are now out. Now we just need Westbrook, Durant, Lillard, McCollum, and Leonard to get injured and we’ll be good to go.
