Stephen Curry scored 62 points, helping Golden State Warriors beat Portland Trail Blazers 137-122 in NBA on the evening of January 3.
For the first time in his career, Stephen Curry crossed the 60-point mark in an NBA game. His old record was 54 points, set in the February 2013 defeat of the New York Knicks. The 32-year-old pitcher has seven times scored over 50 and the Golden State Warriors have won six of those seven.
Portland Trail Blazers just beat Warriors 123-98 on New Year’s Day 2021. But Curry and his teammates had a sweet revenge in the January 3 rematch. The defender wore the number 30 shirt fast-paced with 21 points in the first half and 31 points as the match passed half time. He is the second player since Kobe Bryant in 2005, scoring over 30 points in every half match.
Curry succeeded eight of the 16 trebles, and scored 18 points after 19 free throws. The little player also caught the ball five times and turned the board four times to assist his teammates to score. Curry’s bright evening ended with a live ball score of 58.1%. His 62-point record is more than the sum of the Blazers’ main throwers Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum (60 points).
“Damian made me play at the highest level,” said Curry of Lillard juniors, who previously hinted at the Warriors star’s time. “We are all NBA’s top scorers. It is normal to go head-to-head like this. I love this competition.”
The record for scoring an NBA game goes to legendary Wilt Chamberlain, with 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in March 1962. The late striker also owned five other milestones in the top 10 of this statistic. Second place behind Chamberlain was Kobe Bryant, who scored 81 points in the Los Angeles Lakers win over the Toronto Raptors in January 2006. Curry’s personal record co-ranked only 34th in NBA history.
Curry can score more than 62 points if played enough minutes. But according to coach Steve Kerr, the student’s performance in 37 minutes was enough to celebrate. “He took a year and a half off due to injury and only played about 10 games,” Kerr explained ESPN. “I think he got back to top form. I’m not surprised with his 62 points. Steph could even do better. This was a great performance. His level surpasses his performance.” What do you and me think “.
Since a 2-4 defeat to the Toronto Raptors at NBA Finals 2018-2019, the Warriors have been in decline. They parted ways with Kevin Durant, losing both Klay Thompson and Curry due to injury. The squad with many young players made Kerr’s teachers and coaches stand at the bottom of the western table last season. However, the return of Curry this season brings prosperity to the former champion. After six games, the Warriors won three and finished sixth.
