Stephen Curry treated for dehydration after Warriors' Game 5 win over Cavs
LeBron James wasn't the only one exhausted after Game 5.
Stephen Curry was treated for dehydration following the Warriorrs' 104–91 victory over the Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, but Golden State says its star guard is fine and will be able to play in Game 6.
Curry has logged at least 40 minutes in all five Finals games so far and delivered his biggest performance yet in Game 5. With James erupting for another triple double (40 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists) and the Cavaliers challenging the Warriors late on their home floor, Curry turned in a kitchen-sink performance of his own, scoring 37 points, hitting seven three-pointers and adding seven rebounds and four assists to boot.
The NBA's MVP spoke with the media following Golden State's victory, but began to feel lightheaded shortly after. There was some initial concern about Curry's well-being, with USA Today's Sam Amick reporting Curry was lying down in the Warriors' locker room.
But the team soon quelled any concerns about Curry's health. The Warriors said Curry received fluids after the game, but not an IV.
According to Turner's Rachel Nichols, Curry felt well enough to watch highlights in the locker room and will fly with the team to Cleveland on Monday morning.
The Warriors now hold a 3-2 lead on the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. Game 6 is in Cleveland on Tuesday.
