Curry scored a career-high 62 points in his 36 minutes on the floor, finishing 18-for-31 from the field, 8-for-16 from three-point range, 18-of-19 from the free throw line, and had five rebounds and four assists. Afterwards, Curry called it a “pretty crazy night.”
Curry, whose previous career high was 54 against the New York Knicks in February 2013, became the second-oldest player to score over 60 points in a game. Kobe Bryant is the oldest, at 37.
His accuracy from three-point range, despite some dogged defending from the despairing Trailblazers’ players, had his teammates going wild in celebration. Eventually, they embraced Curry as he breached the 60-point mark.
“We’ve seen Steph do so many things over the years. It’s just a privilege to coach him. It really is. And not just because of his talent, but because of the way he carries himself and the way he leads. We are incredibly blessed as an organization to have Steph leading the way.”
Both the Warriors and the Trailblazers have a 3-3 record in the early stages of the season.
