Curry gets three-point record as War­riors rise to trimph over Blaz­ers

The China Post - - SPORTS -

Stephen Curry eclipsed his own NBA record for most 3- point­ers in a sea­son, scor­ing 45 points to rally the Golden State War­riors to a 116-105 victory over the Port­land Trail Blaz­ers on Thurs­day night.

Curry en­tered the game four shy of his mark of 272 3-point­ers, which he set two years ago in the sea­son fi­nale at Port­land. He hit six be­fore half­time and eight over­all, team­ing with fel­low Splash Broth­ers star Klay Thomp­son to bring the War­riors back from 13 points down.

Curry added nine as­sists, and Thomp­son scored 26 to help Golden State avoid its first three-game los­ing streak this sea­son.

LaMar­cus Aldridge had 27 points and six re­bounds, and Damian Lil­lard added 20 points and eight as­sists for the Blaz­ers, who have al­ready have locked up the North­west Di­vi­sion.

Bulls 89, Heat 78 Pau Ga­sol had 16 points and 15 re­bounds and Chicago Bulls eas­ily wiped out a 19- point half­time deficit to deal a huge blow to Miami’s play­off hopes.

Aaron Brooks and Taj Gibson each scored 14 points for the Bulls, who were outscored 33-12 in the sec­ond quar­ter — then went on a stag­ger­ing 39-8 run to open the sec­ond half. Miami missed its first 12 shots af­ter half­time, and the freefall never stopped.

Mike Dun­leavy and Der­rick Rose each had 12 for Chicago, which moved back into the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Con­fer­ence stand­ings.

Has­san White­side had 19 points and 16 re­bounds for the Heat. Dwyane Wade scored nine points, shoot­ing just 4 for 20. The Heat were outscored 57-27 af­ter half­time.
