50 Cent voiced his disappointment in the Sacramento Kings on Instagram, Sunday, after the team fell 120-100 to the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of their first-round series. During the game, Steph Curry dropped 50 points to set an NBA record for the most scored in Game 7 of a playoff series.
“This is me after saying Sacramento Kings could beat Golden State,” 50 captioned a photo of himself in a hospital bed. “@stephencurry30 went off the man dropped 50.” One fan in the comments advised 50, “Never bet against Steph.” Another wrote, “That boy Steph is different.”

Curry finished shooting 20-of-38, including 7-18 from three-point range. He also added 8 rebounds and 6 assists. With the victory, the Warriors advance to the second round to take on the Los Angeles Lakers. “We’re defying the odds by still playing at this high of a level,” Curry said. “I know everybody wants to see you fail. That’s kind of the nature of where we’re at right now. We love when we still prove a lot of people wrong. It’s part of our vibe now.”
Of the matchup, Warriors forward Draymond Green described playing LeBron James again as “epic.” “It’s going to be epic,” Green said. “You got Steph, you got Bron doing it all over again.” He added: “But … stop trying to turn the page on us so fast. Stop trying to turn the page on Bron. We get so caught up in what’s the next thing, we don’t appreciate the current. Then you get to the next thing and you’re looking back, like, ‘Man, I wish we still had that. I wish we could still see this.’” The Warriors have played James four times in the NBA Finals over the past eight seasons. Game 1 of the Warriors-Lakers series will tip-off on Tuesday at 10:00 PM, ET.
