Curry finished the game with 29 points, 10 assists, 7 rebound and 3 3-pointers while teammate Klay Thompson stole the 3-point show by going 10 of 16.

They know how to put the ball in the hole. It’s not just Stephen. It’s not just Klay. All of them had that confidence to make plays and make shots.”
