They fought hard, but it wasn’t enough,” he said. “I still take my hat off to them for how the season started in training camp, for overcoming that and playing the next six months with the injuries and all, to reach the second round when ‘We did not expect that “.

How do you continue to progress, beat Denver, get out of the Western Conference, and worry about the East once you get there? concluded Dell Curry.
