Steph Curry did what most of you did Monday night. He was at home watching the Warriors play the Blazers.
The Warriors' superstar point guard, who's recovering from surgery on a broken left hand, posted a video on his Instagram Story early in the game.

What Steph got to witness was birthday boy Eric Paschall drop 17 points on the Blazers in the first quarter, and just like Warriors fans, he was pretty excited about it.
With Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, D'Angelo Russell, Kevon Looney and Jacob Evans out because of injuries, Warriors coach Steve Kerr was forced to turn to a young lineup. Paschall, who turned 23 on Monday, took full advantage of the opportunity, becoming the first Warriors rookie to score at least 17 points in a quarter since Reggie Williams had 18 in 2010.

Paschall finished the game with 34 points and 13 rebounds in the Warriors' 127-118 win, their first at Chase Center.
