Making the most of the generous portland defense, Stephen Curry knocked down nine 3-pointers on his way to 36 points, leading the two-time defending champions past the Trail Blazers 116-94 on Tuesday night in Game One of the Western Conference finals.
Portland shooting guard Seth did not fare so well with a 1-7 shooting night.
Speaking after the game, ‘I know what I’m capable of on the floor. The situation calls for me to be a little bit more aggressive and hopefully that’ll continue,’ said Curry, who came in shooting 37.1 per cent on 3 pointers this post-season. ‘Obviously it’s nice to see the ball go in. I didn’t shoot the ball well for 4 1/2 games the last series and got off to a good start tonight. I want to maintain that.
‘Every game is different, you’ve got to re-establish yourself. That’s my perspective no matter how I play.’
Meanwhile Stephen Curry shot 12 for 23 in his fourth 30-point performance this post-season, finding far more open looks than he had in the last round against Houston.
