Stephen Curry couldn’t miss.
That seems to happen a lot but the Trail Blazers got the worst of it as he dropped 45 on them — 19 in the fourth quarter — to lead Golden State to another victory, 116-105.
Portland struggled to defend Curry well, 70 percent of his shots were uncontested (according to data from the Sports VU cameras, via NBA.com). Not that it mattered, he hit 5-of-7 on the ones the Blazers did contest.
Among those shots Curry hit was a three to give him the most made three-pointers in an NBA season, breaking his own record from last season. He’s up to 276 on the season, with four games remaining. Then he’ll just keep doing his thing in the playoffs.
