NBA - US Sports: Curry relieved to survive Memphis test

Golden State Warriors completed a 4-2 series victory over Memphis Grizzlies on Friday with a 110-96 win to secure their place in the Western Conference finals.

Golden State are 9/5 to win the NBA Championship outright and star man Stephen Curry is 14/5 to be the NBA Finals MVP.

Warriors end Grizzlies' resistance

Memphis forward Dillon Brooks and Warriors guard Klay Thompson led the game in scoring as they both managed 30 points, while Curry had 29 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

The Grizzlies were without their own star guard as Ja Morant missed a third straight game due to a knee injury, but Memphis were competitive in Game 6 at the Chase Center in San Francisco and they took the lead twice during the fourth quarter.

However, the Dubs outscored Memphis 18-7 in the closing stages to secure the victory and end the series in six games.

Curry impressed with energy

The Grizzlies claimed second seed in the Western Conference and Curry admits Golden State had to be at their very best to avoid a second round playoff exit - and he feels the six-game series has helped his team improve as they bid to secure the championship.

"I have a lot of respect for every single guy on the team in terms of how they are built as a group, the individual talent," said Curry, via abc News.

"They have a lot of energy, a lot of potential in terms of winning at the highest level. They were the higher seed for a reason. They had an amazing regular season and dominated throughout the course of those 82 games. For us to be able to come out of the series with a W, like there's definitely respect. There's definitely an understanding that they made us better; I'm sure we made them better."
