Trailblazers vs Warriors in Crucial Game 5Published May 12, 2016 by Sol FH
Now down 3-1, can the Portland Trailblazers bounce back against the Warriors with Curry back on the floor? Find out tonight at 3:00 GMT.
He is back! The NBA MVP and arguably the best shooter in the history of the game, Steph Curry scored 40 points in the Game 4 victory against the Blazers, but it took them until overtime to finish the job. The Blazers have been a problem for the Warriors in this series, but the Warriors managed to win two games without Curry and after the 132-125 win on Monday Night, the Warriors are definitely happy to have him back.
The Blazers will need to overcome a healthy Steph Curry and they will need to overcome the Warriors' home court advantage, which has been impossible for most teams in the league over the last couple of years. Curry has made this team into a winner and he does it with modesty. He was happier than anyone else to be back on the court screaming, "I'm Back, I'm Back," after hitting a couple of three's in overtime. He scored a record 17 points in overtime to put the nail in the Blazers' Game 4 coffin and even with his knee sprain still making his play a bit less comfortable, Curry led his team to a crucial win in style.
The Blazers looked great over the first two quarters, actually outscoring the Warriors and leading at half time. Damian Lillard finished with 36 points and 10 assists for the Blazers, but it wasn't enough to get the job done. Now, with the Blazers one loss away from finishing their championship run, it is up to them to make the impossible a reality and win at Golden State.
