Golden State Warriors’ guard Steph Curry torched the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night in the last game of the NBA preseason.
Curry finished the game with 41 points, nine rebounds, and two assists in 3o minutes on 13-23 shooting.
The Warriors defeated the Trail Blazers 119-97.
C.J. McCollum led the way for the ‘Blazers with 26 points and four assists – but he also tied Robert Covington with a team-low plus-minus of –23.
The Warriors will need Curry to play like his usual MVP-self in Klay Thompson’s absence; which a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium suggests could be sooner rather than later.
The Warriors will tip-0ff the 2021-22 season in a matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday (10/19) at 10PM EST.
