- NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry delivered a dazzling 40-point display on Saturday as the Golden State Warriors beat Houston 115-80 to push the Rockets to the brink of elimination in the Western Conference finals. The Warriors lead the best-of-seven series 3-0. Curry connected on 12 of 19 shots from the field, including seven of nine from three-point range. He scored 19 points in the third quarter, when he was a perfect four-for-four from three-point range. Curry, who broke his 2013 record for the most three-pointers made in a regular season with 286, has now drained the most long-range shots in a single post-season with 64 -- surging past the previous record of 58 set by Reggie Miller in 2000.
