Steph Curry and Draymond Green were a dynamic duo last night as they combined for 55 points to knock off the Portland Trail Blazers in a four-game sweep of the Western Conference Finals. Without Kevin Durant, the Warriors are undefeated in the postseason and are off to their fifth-straight NBA Finals. It was a stunning performance from this team that has struggled at times throughout the regular season. Regardless, the Warriors are on a roll and will be looking to keep it up in the Finals which start on May 30th.
Curry and Green’s individual performances were significant as they marked a historic moment in NBA history. It was the first time two teammates had recorded a triple-double in the same playoff game. Curry finished the game with 37 points, 11 assists, and 13 rebounds, while Green picked up 18 points, 11 assists, and 14 rebounds.
These performances helped close out the series in a game where Meyers Leonard put up 30 points for the Blazers, all while CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard combined for 54.
Once again, the Warriors are showing everyone why they won three of the last four championships. If this is how they play in the finals, the Toronto Raptors or the Milwaukee Bucks will be in for a long series.
