Tristan Thompson not happy about Stephen Curry question

Tristan Thompson

Stephen Curry was all that anyone could talk about during Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, much to the annoyance of Tristan Thompson.

After Curry dropped 33 points on an NBA Finals-record nine triples in Golden State’s 122-103 win over Cleveland, Thompson was asked by a reporter in the locker room if the Cavaliers felt “helpless” trying to guard the two-time MVP. Thompson dropped a number of expletives in response and proceeded to cut his interview short. He also gave a vulgar reply to another question about the officiating, per ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

It was obviously a frustrating evening for Thompson, who finished with just five rebounds (albeit 11 points) and regularly found himself stuck on an island defending Curry in Cleveland’s switch-heavy scheme.

Curry’s night was certainly historic and led to some great Twitter reactions. But it is never fun to be on the other side of such a performance, as Thompson and the Cavs can attest to.
