Western Conference that dominate by 1-0 to the best of seven.
The game had no more history than to see the complete superiority of the Warriors, current two-time defending champions of the NBA, who despite suffering the loss of star forward and leader encestador Kevin Durant, injured with a muscle strain in the right calf, was enough the inspiration of Curry and the contribution of the escort Klay Thompson.
Curry was a point-scoring machine after scoring 12 of 23 field goals, including 9 of 15 from outside the perimeter, and he was perfect with 3-3 from the personnel line, in addition to capturing six rebounds and distributing seven assists.
"It was a very important game for us and we needed not only to achieve the victory but to play well as a team and that's what we did," Curry said at the end of the game, which took place at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) winner completely dominated the match against star point guard Damian Lillard and guard C.J. McCollum, the best shutters of the Blazers.
Both players just combined with 11 baskets of 31 attempts, to confirm that they are far from being the team that can face the current two-time league champions, at least after seeing how they succumbed to the great defense that the Warriors also played. (tagsToTranslate) warriors (t) blazers1
