Stephen Curry led the Warriors to a 119-117 OT Game 4 on Monday with 37 points on 11-of-25 shooting with 13 rebounds, 11 assists, a steal and seven 3-pointers.
Curry put on an off-ball clinic tonight, running circles around the Blazers to get open even though he drew consistent triple-teams. Steve Kerr wanted to end this series tonight so Curry played the entire second half including OT and the move paid off. There shouldn’t be any more noise about Curry’s ability to perform in the playoffs as he destroyed the Blazers in every coverage they threw at him. It’ll be all eyes on Curry again in the Finals as they look to three-peat.

Stephen Curry scored 36 points in Saturday's 110-99 Game 3 win over the Blazers, adding six rebounds, three assists and five turnovers.
Curry led his team offensively, contributing 36 points on 11-for-26 shooting. On a night where teammate Draymond Green was the primary facilitator, Curry settled in on scoring the bulk of his team's points from off the ball screens and shots from behind the arc. The Warriors have the luxury to allow for multiple ball-handlers and Curry seemed happy to acquiesce as he and Klay Thompson combined for 55 points with seven 3-pointers. Look for Curry to continue to lead the team in scoring as Kevin Durant is not expected to be back this series.

Stephen Curry went off in Thursday's 114-111 win and posted a monster 37-point masterpiece on 11-for-22 shooting and 11-for-11 from the charity stripe while adding four 3-pointers, eight rebounds and eight assists.
Curry continues to lead the way and frustrate the Blazers defense. Though marred with six turnovers, he was otherwise able to have his way during the first three quarters and settled on being a facilitator in the final minutes of the game. His ability to score and make sound, in-game decisions will enable him to continue to have games like these throughout the series.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors to a 116-94 win in Tuesday's Game 1, going 12-of-23 from the field and 9-of-15 from deep to go with six rebounds, seven assists and a steal.
A couple days ago Curry said that his dislocated finger would give him discomfort until it was given time to heal, but he certainly looked fine in this one. The Blazers curiously embraced drop-back coverage on high pick-and-rolls, enabling Curry to step into wide-open threes without even having to work for them. He still hit some crazy shots but the Blazers didn't make things as difficult as they could've. Even despite some incoming adjustments, you never have to think twice about plugging Curry into a DFS lineup.

Stephen Curry's dislocated finger won't fully heal until he has time to rest it.
Curry originally dislocated the finger in Game 2 against the Rockets and re-aggravated it in Game 6. The rest in between series will help, but it might not be fully healed. He is experimenting with splints and tape to help him feel comfortable. Curry's shooting has been affected at times because of the injury and we'll see if that continues into the Western Conference Finals against Portland.

Stephen Curry recovered from a scoreless first half on Friday and scored 33 points in the second half (23 in the fourth quarter) to lead the Warriors to a 118-113 Game 6 win over the Rockets.
He shot 9-of-20 from the field and a perfect 11-for-11 from the free throw line, adding five rebounds, four 3s and four assists. This is why the Warriors are champions and Curry is a former finals MVP. He dug deep and turned it on at just the right time close out the series. Thankfully, the Warriors will get a chance to rest up as they get ready to face the victors of the Blazers-Nuggets series.

The Warriors took a Game 5 win over the Rockets thanks in part to Stephen Curry, who tallied 25 points on 9-of-23 shooting (three 3s), six rebounds and five assists.
Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 52 points in this one, but both sharpshooters will need to raise the bar in Game 6 with the possibility of Kevin Durant (right calf strain) possibly sitting it out. The Curry-Chris Paul matchup will be key factor in determining whether or not the Warriors close out the series or the Rockets live to fight another day.

Stephen Curry scored 30 points on 12-of-25 shooting with four rebounds, eight assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in Monday's 108-112 Game 4 loss to the Rockets.
Curry was aggressive from the start of the game and made the majority of his layups in the first quarter. He was also setting up his teammates for easy buckets and it was obvious that he wouldn't have another game like Saturday's. He missed a clean look from deep at the end of regulation, but it looks like he's got his short game back and you can expect him to come out firing at home in Game 5 on Wednesday.

Stephen Curry's shot was off the mark on Saturday, making just 7-of-23 attempts from the field to finish with 17 points, three rebounds, four dimes, two 3s and two steals.
It was a good thing that Kevin Durant went HAM on offense to help offset Curry's rough shooting. That said, he did deal with a bit of foul trouble as well (five fouls) keeping him off his groove. We're not too worried though as Curry should be able to bounce back in Game 4.

Stephen Curry (dislocated left middle finger) reported on Friday that the finger "feels alright" but he's still dealing with pain.
This isn't an unexpected development but the injury clearly affected his shooting in Game 2. It'll be interesting to see if ill-effects carry over to Game 3 and whether the Rockets can take advantage of that to get back into this series.

Stephen Curry (dislocated finger) had tape on both his left ring and middle finger as he was getting shots up on Thursday afternoon.
Curry dislocated his finger early in the first quarter of the Warriors Game 2 victory over the Rockets. He was able to return in the first quarter. His shooting (6-of-16) may have been affected by the injury but luckily the injury was on his non-shooting hand. All signs are pointing to the Chef getting back out there for his normal workload on Saturday as the series transitions to Houston.

Despite suffering a dislocated finger early in the first quarter, Stephen Curry capped off Tuesday's win over the Rockets with 20 points (6-of-16 shooting), three rebounds and five assists.
His finger was painful enough to hamper his shooting, making Chef Curry go 3-of-13 from deep as he did his best to shoot his way back into a groove. It was good to see him make a relatively healthy return and contribute on the defensive end of the floor with two steals and one block. Curry has tended to get into a bit of foul trouble early. Once he solves that issue, expect the Warriors to have a smoother run moving forward.

Stephen Curry headed to the locker room in the first quarter of Tuesday's Game 2 with what appears to be a finger injury.
Curry was favoring his finger and immediately went to the locker room which isn't a good sign. The Warriors are going to rely heavily on Kevin Durant now and Curry's status for this game is uncertain. This would be a huge blow for a Warriors team already dealing with an injury to DeMarcus Cousins (quad).

Stephen Curry (sprained right ankle) will play in Game 2.
Curry played through the ankle injury in Game 1 as well and managed to hit the most important shot of the game for the Warriors. He also played 37 minutes so the injury can't be bothering him too much. Game 2 against the Rockets on Tuesday is shaping up to be a fun one.
