League MVP and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry said before his team’s Game 5 clash with the Oklahoma City Thunder that his knee is “fine,” despite rumors and reports that he has played at or around 70 percent since spraining his MCL in the first round of the postseason.
“I know what I need to do to get ready for games,” Curry said during the Warriors’ shoot around ahead of Thursday’s game. “I’m fine. If I’m playing, then I need to play well.”

Curry injured the knee in Game 4 of Golden State’s opening-round series against the Houston Rockets, which forced him to miss nearly two weeks of game action.
In Tuesday night’s blowout loss to the Thunder, Curry shot 6-for-20 for 19 points, similar to his 7-for-17 performance in Game 3.
When addressing his team’s historic 73-win season, Curry ignored the hype surrounding the implications, saying, “”I’m not really worried about the legacy of 73 [wins]. Right now we’ve got to win tonight.”
