Cavs reportedly ‘highly agitated’ over Stephen Curry celebration
The Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly are “highly agitated” over the strange squatting celebration from Stephen Curry in the waning moments of the Golden State Warriors’ 118-113 victory in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
A tweet from Sam Amico indicates Cavs players were upset in the locker room following the demoralizing loss and that it was mentioned Curry’s antics “won’t be forgotten come Friday night” in Game 4.
Curry took to a squatting position after Kevin Durant deliver a dagger three-pointer to give the Warriors a lead late.

“I really don’t know what I did last night,” he said of the celebration. “I saw it, I just don’t know what I was doing. I even dropped my mouth piece because I was so uncoordinated with that. … No Randy Moss, none of that stuff. Just having fun, I guess.”
The Warriors will try to close out the Warriors and complete a series sweep of the Cavaliers — not to mention finish off a perfect 16-0 postseason Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena. It remains to be seen what the Cavaliers have planned for Curry in retaliation, if anything. Although eking out a win and staving off elimination obviously ought to take a much higher priority.
