Davis on Curry:
I knew he was crafty, I mean, a great shooter. There’s nothing you can do. You try to pressure him and run him off the (3-point) line and he’ll hit incredible shots in the lane. You back off so he won’t drive, he’s going to hit a 3. So you’ve got to pick your poison and he’s a tough player to guard. That’s why he’s (a candidate) for MVP.
Curry on Golden State sweeps series:
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.
Coach Williams on Curry:
What we’ve been through playing against Steph sometimes, it’s not fair. Steph is like, 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.
TrailBlazers 99-90 Pelicans
The TrailBlazers win 99-90. Aldridge scores a double-double (21points, 12 rebounds), Kaman scores 16 points and 11 rebounds. Gordon scores 21 points and Davis scores 21 points and nine rebounds for the Pelicans. Lillard on TrailBlazers 50 game victory:
It’s going in the right direction, A lot of the elite teams are consistently going over 50, and I think it’s great for us to have back-to-back seasons with that.
I’ve never had 50 wins, so it feels good.
They had 18 offensive rebounds so we just kept giving extra possessions to a team that doesn’t need them. They didn’t shoot the ball great tonight but they got so many opportunities.
