Rivalry between Curry and James Intensifies
Posted by: Mike Davis
It’s been a good year for online NBA betting fans. The 2015-16 NBA Finals was a historic one, and getting to witness it first hand is a once in a lifetime opportunity. When LeBron James led the Cavaliers to a Finals victory despite falling behind 1-3 in the series, he instantly cemented his place as one of the greatest to ever pick up a basketball. But at the same time, unwillingly, James started a rivalry with Steph Curry, a rivalry that could easily surpass that of Michael Jordan’s and Magic Johnson. In fact, both players recently added another chapter to what is shaping up to be the arguably the NBA’s best rivalry.
Recently, Steph Curry had snapped his streak of consecutive games with a 3-pointer. After 157 straight games with at least one 3-pointer, Curry failed to score one in the Warriors game against the Los Angeles Lakers. November 11th, 2014 was the last time Curry missed a 3, but even though his streak ended at 157, Curry still set the NBA record. Seeing the reigning MVP go 0-10 on 3-point attempts was unprecedented, but in the following game Curry put up performance that resolved any doubts online NBA betting fans were having about the 2-time MVP.
After his 0-10 performance, Steph Curry went on to make 13-17 3-pointers in Golden State’s win over the New Orleans Pelicans. In doing so, Curry set another NBA record, this time for most 3-pointers made in a single game. The record was so impressive that it motivated James to compliment the reigning MVP, basically stating that only Curry would be able to break such a marvelous feat. But this past weekend, James wanted to make a statement to basketball betting sites and let them know that Curry isn’t the only active player capable of making historic accomplishments.
With this past weekend’s online NBA betting action in the books, LeBron James has now joined the NBA’s all-time top 10 scorers list. More so, by the time this week is completed, James is likely to become the youngest player to reach 27,000 points. James 32nd birthday is six weeks away, and the future hall of famer is adamant that he still has plenty of basketball left in him. Even though Curry has been setting more records than James as of late, the King still has one up on Curry due to the results of last year’s NBA Finals. But of the two, who is more likely to make it to the Finals this year?
As of right now, the Cavaliers have the better record. Cleveland will once again take to the court this upcoming Friday to face off against the Washington Wizards. The Wizards will be coming into this game with an extremely unimpressive record and are likely to be handed another loss by the reigning NBA champions.
