As if silencing doubters, Steph Curry erupted for a career-high 62 points as the Golden State Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers, 137-122 Sunday at the Chase Center.
The 2-time MVP Curry shot an efficient 18/31 from the field which included a hot 8/16 from 3-point area.
He also made 18/19 from the foul line and added 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
Andrew Wiggins added 21 points while Kelly Oubre chipped in 17 as the Warriors got back to .500 with a 3-3 record in the early season.
The spectacular performance came just two days after the Blazers beat the Warriors on Friday, 123-98.
In that game, Blazers star Damian Lillard outplayed Curry with 34 points (11/21 FGs) and 6 triples to the latter’s 26 points (9/20 FGs, 4 triples).

Lillard this time scored 32 points while his backcourt partner CJ McCollum added 28.
Carmelo Anthony made a milestone in the loss, passing San Antonio Spurs legends and Hall of Famer Tim Duncan in the all-time scoring list.
The new career-high served as a gentle reminder that Curry remains one of the most incredible basketball players of his generation, and that outside noise does not bother him at all.
