Steph Curry drops career-high 62 points in Warriors' win
Stephen Curry dropped a career-high 62 points in the Golden State Warriors' 137-122 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night.
Curry's previous career-high was 54 points, which he set in New York against the Knicks back in 2013. Curry had it going early and often, as he put up 31 points in the first half on 10-18 shooting from the field. The two-time MVP was able to replicate that 31-point performance in the second half, as the Warriors coasted to a double-digit victory over the Blazers.
He also chipped in 8 threes, 5 rebounds and 4 assists while shooting 58.1 percent from the field and 50 percent from three-point range. Andrew Wiggins was Golden State's second-leading scorer, with 21 points to go along with 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and 1 three (on 50 percent shooting from the field).
Damian Lillard (32 points, 4 assists, 4 rebounds, 6 threes), C.J. McCollum (28 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 threes, 2 steals) and Enes Kanter (24 points and 12 rebounds) played well for Portland, but it wasn't enough to hold off Curry.
The Warriors now sit at .500 (3-3) and have to be feeling pretty good about their position in the Western Conference after some early lopsided losses. Curry and the Warriors have a quick turnaround as they host the Sacramento Kings tomorrow night at 10 p.m. ET.
