Former Chicago Bulls guard Jay Williams believes that Steph Curry can boost his legacy by leading the Golden State Warriors to a win against the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The 40-year-old also laid down some stats to get Warriors fans excited.

Apart from Game 5, Steph Curry has been at his very best in the Finals. A win on the road to seal the championships will certainly add to his status as an NBA legend.

In the two games played at the Garden, Curry has recorded 31 and 43 points respectively. Speaking about how winning the championship in Boston would elevate his legacy, Jay Williams said on ESPN's "KJM show":

"If they are able to win that tonight considering they haven't won a closing game scenario on the road throughout the entire postseason this year, I think that means something even bigger for Steph's legacy. I think it adds to it for me because that environment tonight is going to be off the chains."

Williams went on to speak about Curry's impressive shooting numbers this season.

"Steph is averaging 30 PPG in the postseason, but at TD Garden he is averaging 37 PPG on 54% shooting from the field and 52% shooting from the 3-point line.
"So if he's able to take that up a notch, that's gonna be something different, we might be having a complete different conversation about Steph Curry tomorrow, if he is able to elevate that performance and win it on the road."

If we take stats into consideration, the Boston Celtics are a lot better on the road than they are at home. However, this being the biggest game of their season, they are expected to bring their best. But if Steph Curry gets going, the Warriors would definitely be favorites to clinch the title.

The Celtics did a good job on Curry in Game 5. While he had a rare game where he looked off-color, the other Warrior players stepped up.

Steph Curry is a man on a mission this postseason. He has averaged 27.0 points, 5.8 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game in 21 appearances. The three-time champion was expected to be pivotal to the team's chances in the NBA Finals and he has certainly shown up.

Curry has averaged 30.6 PPG and 5.8 RPG over the course of the last five games. He has led the Warriors' offense from the front and now has the chance to put an end to the series in Game 6.

This is the Steph Curry we need to see tomorrow night! https://t.co/YhfGRcVaoM

The 34-year-old is on track to win Finals MVP. Coming off a poor performance, Curry will be determined to drop a big Game 6 performance for the Warriors.

He has had a roller-coaster of a year and winning the championship would be the perfect way to cap it all off.
