Curry on Game 3 performance:
You know how big of a deal it is to come back from a deficit like that in the playoffs on the road, in a game we knew was very important for us to really take control of this series. So I think we should celebrate the accomplishment.
We haven’t been in that position a lot this year, but mental toughness and resilience is probably (among) our best traits. It was an amazing way to finish the game.
Davis on Pelicans loss:
Against a team like this, you can’t relax. “You’ve got to keep being aggressive and we missed shots. … We’ve got to do a better job executing and following our game plan, especially late in the game.
