Stephen Curry, Kevon Looney say vibe around Warriors is great heading into Game 6 vs. Rockets

Stephen Curry, Kevon Looney, Warriors

Despite losing Kevin Durant late in Game 5 of their series against the Houston Rockets, Stephen Curry and Kevon Looney feel the Golden State Warriors have a great vibe going into a tough Game 6 on the road:

“It’s great (in the Warriors locker room right now),” Curry told Sam Amick of The Athletic on Thursday night. “This is fun. We’re in a playoff series against a tough team, and every game has been down to the wire, so at the end of the day the championship mentality is blocking out all the noise and the BS that we dealt with all season.

“This is the time that we’ve been looking forward to. Win or lose, we just play basketball and enjoy it. …There hasn’t been any distractions in the locker room, or anything that’s interrupted (the vibe). Again, whether it’s coming off the floor with a win or a loss, we’re talking, we’re communicating.”

The Warriors are up 3-2, but face the daunting task of beating a rugged team on the road, one specifically designed to target their weaknesses and play off of them. Yet Curry maintains this postseason run has healed a lot of fissures that take place with the repetitive nature of the regular season:

“Nah, it was more just trying to get to this point,” he said. “Playing these types of games heals a lot of stuff in general anyway, and then obviously (it’s) the trust factor and, again, knowing how much we’ve invested into this thing. I’m very optimistic about what type of vibe we have in this playoff run. Obviously, we’ve still got work to do, but I just like the way we play and block out all the BS.”

Golden State is only one game away from punching its ticket to the Western Conference Finals for a fifth straight season, even without a healthy Kevin Durant until next week:

“(The collective mood) is probably the best it’s been all season, actually,” Looney said after Game 5. “Everybody is together. Everybody is positive. Everybody’s in the right mindset. We all have our eyes on the prize, and we know what it takes to get to the championship.

The Warriors have had plenty of success without Durant,
