Curry Back And Puts On Show W/40 Points In OT Win, Wade Apologizes Then 30 Points In OT


Steph CurrySteph Curry returned and put on a show Monday night with a stunning 40 points, 17 of them in overtime in a Game 4 win against the Portland Trailblazers.  Steph made history again as no other player has scored 17 points in OT (either in the regular season or in the post season). The closest any player has come was in 2006 by Gilbert Arenas who scored 16 points.

Curry remarked, “It took me awhile to get back in the flow. When you miss three weeks, it’s really weird to walk back on the court. Like, the crowd out there going crazy and that competitive atmosphere again. So, just trying to get my bearings straight, make some plays and try and get a rhythm. And it took 48 minutes and things finally clicked.” Warriors 132, Trailblazers 125.


In the other playoff news, Dwayne Wade spent the last couple of days apologizing for any disrespect his shootaround caused during the singing of O Canada prior to game 3 on Saturday. In game 4 on Monday night, Wade was the first to stand during the Canadian National Anthem then turned his attention to scoring 30 points for the Heat in an overtime win over the Trailblazers. Miami 94, Portland 87.
