OAKLAND, California — Warriors’ Steph Curry scored 38 points, including eight 3-pointers as the top-seeded Golden State defeated the Los Angeles Clippers for a 121-104 victory in their playoff opener Saturday at the Oracle Center.
Curry ( 15 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 block) passed Ray Allen for most career threes in NBA Playoffs history. He went 8 for 12 from deep to pass Ray Allen (385) for career postseason 3s with 386.
“To be in the same category and to pass a guy like Ray Allen and all the iconic moments he’s had in playoff games and finals games, it’s pretty surreal,” Curry said. “Definitely honored and grateful for those opportunities. I always joked, if I shoot a lot of 3s I better make a lot of them.”
