Riley Curry has more than her share of fun after dad squeaks out a Game 1 victory
Last night was supposed to be about the regular season MVP and MVP runner-up, Stephen Curry and James Harden, battling for home-court advantage in what’s expected to be an entertaining, if not contentious, Western Conference Finals. For most of the evening, it was just that. After falling behind by 16 points in the first half, Curry (34 pts, 6 rbs, 5 asts) helped his team battle back, and eventually hold off the resilient Rockets, and a 4th quarter comeback attempt led by Harden, who fell just an assist short of a triple-double (28 pts, 11 rbs, 9 asts).
However, following the sound of the 4th quarter buzzer, the story line quickly changed, and Stephen wasn’t the Curry taking over. His daughter, Riley Curry, who insisted that she be included in her dad’s post-game presser, quickly stole the show. As her father glanced at the night’s stat sheet and did his best to answer reporters’ questions despite his daughter’s antics, he quickly became the 2nd most interesting person in his family. Even ESPN’s cameraman panned towards the far left of the table at which Stephen Curry was seated to catch some of Riley’s antics. You can see some of the adorable footage above.
