Curry Drops 40 in Victorious Return
Bombs away. Stephen Curry looked positively mortal for most of his first game back from a knee sprain, missing his first nine 3-point attempts. But late in the game — hours after the not-so-surprising news leaked that he’ll once again be the NBA’s Most Valuable Player — Curry found his stride. He scored a record 17 points in overtime alone, hitting 40 for the game, to lead Golden State to a pivotal 132-125 Game 4 win in Portland. The Warriors hope to clinch the second-round series Wednesday.
