Additionally, Curry connected on 15 of his 16 attempts from the free throw line, grabbed six rebounds, dished out three assists, and accrued three steals.
Stephen Curry scored 45 points and the Golden State Warriors cruised to a 121-105 National Basketball Association victory on Saturday, January 6, over the Los Angeles Clippers, who lost star Blake Griffin to a concussion in the first quarter. Griffin drove into the lane and, as he began to stumble, took an elbow to the head from JaVale McGee.
Stephen Curry continued his torrid pace since returning from injury, notching a season-high 45 points in the first three quarters alone. He returned to the lineup for the Clippers' victory December 29 over the Lakers and led them to wins in four of five games before Saturday. After several minutes, Griffin rose to a sitting position and then walked to the locker room under his own power. The five-time All-Star missed 14 games already this season because of a sprained MCL.?
"When you see Blake's hand (shaking), you know it's bad", Rivers said. Despite the plethora of ailments listed on the Warriors' injury report, it appears that Durant will be the only one not to suit up.
