The Warriors are in the driver’s seat as they beat the Blazers 132 to 125 thanks to a lights-out performance by Steph Curry. This win gives the Warriors a 3-to-1 advantage in the series. After playing the first three games without their star guard Steph Curry, due to a knee injury in the first round; this victory is right on time.
With this being Stephs first game back, he was only expected to play limited minutes but due to Shaun Livingston getting tossed from the game in the second quarter plans changed. Curry log just over 36 minutes while shooting 50% from the field and 31% beyond the 3. While he did have a slow start that didn’t stop him for dropping 40 for the night and setting an NBA record scoring 17pts in overtime.
During the Post-Game Curry stated “My confidence never wavered, I don’t think you shoot nine shots from 3 without making one if you don’t have confidence.” Confidence is something Steph Curry definitely has, to come back from an injury and to have a performance like this.
With a victory like this the Warriors are definitely in the driver’s seat. Only needing one win to end the series, some of the pressure should be taken off the team; now that they have three opportunities to do it.
Now that the team is one win away from the conference finals, should the GSW limit Curry’s mins for the rest of the Series? Let us know in the comment section or on Twitter.
