A new day, a new personal NBA playoff record for Steph Curry.
With 25 first-half points against the Blazers in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday night, the Warriors superstar set a new high-water mark for most first-half points in his playoff career.
Stephen Curry’s 25 first half points are the most he’s ever scored in the first half of a playoff game (previously 24 on April 16, 2016 vs. Houston). His high for any half is 33 (second half in Game 6 at Houston on May 10, 2019).— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) May 21, 2019
Curry was sensational in the half, putting up those 25 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field, including 5-of-7 on 3-pointers.
