Steph Curry mum on reason for changing shoes during playoff game

Kevin Durant’s unstoppable soul-killing performance

Kevin Durant’s unstoppable soul-killing performance

The Warriors were certainly in control and Stephen Curry's volcanic eruption threatened to break things open at any moment but the Clippers never backed down at all. He immediately buried a pair of 3-pointers, with the second of the two giving him the all-time playoff record for 3-point field goals made.

Saturday in Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers, Durant's Warriors won, 121-104.

"That's pretty special,"said Curry".

Game 2 is Monday night back at Oracle Arena.

Durant, though, also had a record night after amassing 3,679 points to pass Dirk Nowitzki (3,663) for 15th place on the career playoff scoring list.

Draymond Green had 17 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists while Klay Thompson added 12 markers for the defending champions.

He started the final frame on the bench but when a Clippers' run cut into the Warriors lead, head coach Steve Kerr sent Curry back in the game. In 91 playoff games, Curry passed Allen who achieved the feat in 171 career playoff games. "We competed. I really wish we could've played more without the chippy calls, but I understand it's Game 1 and they're trying to set the tone".
