MVP candidate Stephen Curry came up with yet another a dominant performance in Sunday morning’s 109-98 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, helping Golden State to sweep a seven-game series for the first time in four decades.
In 1975 the Warriors swept then Washington Bullets in four games, and Curry, who was superb all game long, made sure to contribute to the franchise’s history to go with 39 points, nine assists and eight rebounds.
“I’m proud of the way we played, the way we competed. Four in a row is a good feeling. We’re going to rest up,” Curry said after the game.
Pelicans big man Anthony Davis did everything in his power to give his a team hope with 36 points and 11 rebounds, but the Warriors were on a mission as sharpshooter Klay Thompson added 25 points and Draymond Green contributed 22 points in the winning cause.
Pelicans coach Monty Williams paid tribute to Curry afterwards: “He’s on a different level – some of the shots he makes, his command of the ball, his ability to finish. The moment doesn’t bother him. He is in the elite of the elite right now, and he’s after something and you can tell by the way he’s playing.”
