NBA Finals Storyboards: Stephen Curry


See below for the “NBA Finals Storyboards” of Stephen Curry. Each and every Finals series he played has been measured, analyzed and charted below. Curry has quickly risen to the top of the NBA with stunning peak play and the best shooting we’ve ever seen. Despite his historic winning and regular seasons, however, Steph hasn’t yet posted an all-time elite Finals series. However, his Warriors team is primed to contend for multiple titles in the coming years. Curry has plenty of chances to add rings and boost his Finals legacy.

These “storyboards” were incredibly FUN for me to assemble, as I learned so much about the players and the teams involved in basketball’s biggest stage. I hope you enjoy reading them! For any questions or comments, tweet me @NBAStatsLab for some fun banter.¬†View from top-to-bottom to see each of his Finals performances in chronological order.

NOTE: I’ve graded each Finals series by calculating the player’s “RINGscore” value. Factoring into this calculation include a player’s box score performance, win/loss result, # of games played, the difficulty of competition, # of times player led a game in stats, the player’s statistical rank over his peers, high-game outputs, and more!


On to the stats and stories of “Chef Curry”…

They blew a 3-1 series lead to eventually lose in 7 games. Curry was clearly not himself and posted his worst Finals outing thus far.


3) Stephen Curry – 2017 NBA Finals – GSW vs CLE
