Steph Curry Shines with Historic Performance

Despite the Kings setting the pace of the game in the first half, maintaining a minimal lead, the Warriors made a key break in the second half, with star player Steph Curry leading the way.

Curry scored an impressive 50 points, with 8 rebounds and 6 assists, making him the player with the most points scored in the seventh game of the NBA playoffs in the entire history. "It's amazing ‘cuz you’re still in the fight," Curry said.

"Better than the alternative of on the outside looking in. Having been down 0-2 in this series, nothing was guaranteed, you don't take anything for granted." Coach Steve Kerr praised Curry's performance, saying, "For Steph to be the first player ever to get 50 in a Game 7, he’s sublime."

Kevin Looney Makes Impressive Contribution

Kevin Looney also made a significant contribution to the Warriors' victory with 11 points, but it was his impressive 21 rebounds, 10 of which were offensive and 11 defensive, that helped secure the win.

The most efficient player among the Kings was Domantas Sabonis with 22 points.

Miami Heat Take the Lead in Semifinal Series Against New York Knicks

In the Eastern Conference semifinals, the Miami Heat secured a 108:101 victory over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

The home team had the advantage for most of the first half, but Miami took the lead in the middle of the third quarter and held on until the end. Jimmy Butler led the way for Miami with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists, while Gabe Vincent scored 20 points, and Kyle Lowry contributed 18 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds and 4 blocks.

Bam Adebayo added 16 points with 8 rebounds. "We’re just playing great basketball," Butler said in a postgame interview. "We’re together, at home, on the road, through the good and through the bad. We believe that we can do something special." Coach Erik Spoelstra added, "It’s the playoffs, number one.

You expect it to be tough. Two, just because the regular season didn’t go the way we wanted it to go or other people wanted it to go, doesn’t mean we weren’t developing grit and tough habits and good things.

It wasn’t just from the play-in." For the Knicks, RJ Barrett stood out with 26 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists, while Jalen Brunson scored 25 points with 7 assists.
