Steph Curry has to live vicariously through his young Warriors teammates for the next three months.
After watching two duds, Curry finally had reason to celebrate Monday night, as Golden State beat the Portland Trail Blazers 127-118 behind a career-high 34 points from second-round draft pick Eric Paschall.
Curry was jacked up about Paschall's big first quarter, and after the game, he posted this image from his home.
After losing the first four regular-season games at Chase Center, the Warriors finally got to celebrate in their new building.
With Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and D'Angelo Russell among the injured Warriors missing the game, Paschall is getting a chance to play heavy minutes and taking full advantage of that opportunity.
In Monday's win, Paschall played 40 minutes and shot 11 of 19 from the field. He also made 4 of 6 from 3-point range and grabbed 13 rebounds.

By the way, it also was Paschall's 23rd birthday.
It was a banner day for the rookie, and no one was happier for him that Curry.
