“You try not to get distracted by all the things that are outside the locker room.”
One game after breaking Ray Allen’s 3-point record at Madison Square Garden, Curry hit five 3-pointers and added a one-handed scoop shot in the final minute to help the Warriors snap a five-game losing streak against the Celtics. “Now tomorrow is more of a free swing.”
Jayson Tatum scored 27 points, and Jaylen Brown had 20 points and nine rebounds for the Celtics, who placed five players in the COVID-19 protocol in the 24 hours leading up to the game.
In his first game since breaking Allen’s record of 2,973 3-pointers, Curry hit back-to-back 3s on his first two shots of the game, giving the Warriors an 11-point lead just four minutes in.
Curry scored 38 and 47 against the Celtics last season – making 11 3-pointers in Boston – but the Warriors lost both matchups.
