In one of the more thrilling playoff games this post-season, Under Armour-sponsored Stephen Curry led his Golden State Warriors to a one-point win Thursday over the Houston Rockets in game two of the NBA Western Conference Finals.
Curry hit the court in a players edition of his signature shoe with the Baltimore-based brand, the Curry One. The sneaker featured a yellow upper with blue accents, blue lining, and a white and yellow outsole.
The 2015 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player scored 33 points on 13-21 shooting, including hitting five three-pointers. But Curry’s most important game moment came when he, along with teammate Klay Thompson, trapped Nike-sponsored James Harden of the Rockets in the fourth quarter as time was winding down, forcing the ball out of his hands so that he failed to get a shot off before time expired.
The win gives the Warriors a 2-0 series lead over the Rockets, with game three set for Saturday at the Toyota Center in Houston.
Under Armour released another edition of the Curry One today, the #DUBNATION, featuring an all-white upper with blue accents, and a yellow and blue outsole. The shoe has a retail price tag of $120. The brand also has two Curry One releases scheduled for June.
