Video Reveals What Steph Curry Said To Kendrick Perkins During Altercation

steph curry kendrick perkins game 2 nba finals altercation

Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals was all about J.R Smith. Game 2 was all about Stephen Curry. The Golden State Warriors' star had, arguably, the best Finals game of his career, making a league-record nine 3-pointers on way to the blowout win.

The victory was not without incident for Golden State's chosen son, though. There was an incident with the Cavs' bench at the end of the third quarter.

Curry had missed a 3-pointer at the end of the quarter and was trying to make his way back to the Warriors' bench. In his way was veteran Kendrick Perkins (who wasn't dressed for the game). Most of the Cavs' had moved out of the way for Curry, but Perkins kept sitting there, not moving his legs.

There was some contact made and, while he wasn't hurt, Curry seemed to be bothered by the potential for injury. The two jawed at each other for a bit before things calmed down.

A new video has emerged, revealing what Curry said to Perkins during the altercation.

The two-time MVP appeared to mock Perkins for not playing in the game.

"You ain't playing tonight?" a sarcastic Curry appears to tell Perkins.

That's cold - but probably fair.

Game 3 of the NBA Finals is set for Wednesday night. Tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
