Warriors’ Steph Curry goes for 40, again, in win over Cavaliers

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr made known after Monday’s win over Sacramento that Stephen Curry hero ball would not be sustainable over the course of an 82-game season.

Curry clearly didn’t get the memo.

Curry got a little more help in Golden State’s 106-101 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, but things played out eerily similar to his domination of the Kings. He finished with a game-high 40 points with four rebounds and five assists in 34 minutes. His 15 points over the final 5:05 of the game were enough to give the Cavaliers just their fourth loss of this season.

After losing five consecutive games, the Warriors have now won two in a row to improve to 5-7. Curry totaled 87 points in those two victories, at 34 years old becoming the oldest player to score 40 or more in consecutive games since Michael Jordan in 2002, according to ESPN Stats & Info. In Sacramento on Sunday, the Warriors will attempt to win their first road game.

With 17.6 seconds left in the game and the Warriors leading 103-99, Curry stepped up to the free-throw line and gnawed on his trademark mouthpiece while MVP chants echoed throughout Chase Center. If the Warriors can continue to build on these wins, his case for the award will be just as strong as anyone else, as his career-best scoring season remained on track with another clutch, sharpshooting performance. Curry is shooting 67% from field and 55% from 3 over last three games.
