Trail Blazers Owner Paul Allen Had The Same Reaction As All Of Us During Steph Curry’s Record Breaking Overtime Performance
Even the owner of the Trail Blazers, Paul Allen, couldn’t believe Steph Curry. https://t.co/go89j64oCB

That right there is the face of someone who knows he’s about to be defeated and there’s nothing he can do to stop it. Just an unreal performance last night from Steph Curry. Coming off the bench, and playing in his first game in two weeks, he scored 40 points, including 17 in overtime, which are the most points in NBA overtime history, regular season or playoffs. What else can you say about the guy? Earlier in the day he finds out he’s going to be the MVP again, and then he goes and does this. Add in the fact that Portland controlled most of this game and the Trail Blazers crowd is a brutal crowd to play in front of, and you have one of the best performances in NBA playoff history. The NBA might not be that fun to watch in general, but if Steph Curry is playing, I will continue to go out of my way to watch him.
Steph Curry’s Ridiculous No Look Pass Is The Latest Example Of The Golden State Warriors Steam Rolling The NBA
The Bulls ended up winning this game (thanks to Golden State missing it’s last 13 three pointers, which I can’t imagine is going to happen often with the Splash Brothers) but this pass by Steph Curry is another example of not only his evolution into an unstoppable offense force but of the Warriors as a team being better than anyone else in the NBA. The Bulls win last night snapped the Warriors 20 game win streak, and they are now 36-7 overall on the season. The only team close to their .837 winning percentage are the Atlanta Hawks, who are no doubt having an excellent season, but are definitely helped by the fact that they play in the Eastern Conference (they ARE 12-2 against the West this season, but 25 of their 37 wins have come against the East). I don’t know if the Warriors have what it takes to win multiple 7 game playoff series with their younger roster and first year head coach Steve Kerr, but they will be a lot of fun to watch between now and May or June.
