Sunday’s regular season finale between the Golden State Warriors and the Memphis Grizzlies quickly turned into the Steph Curry show late in the fourth quarter, as the 33-year-old sharpshooter closed out his team’s campaign on a high note.
With the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference on the line, Curry’s Warriors held off a late run from Dillon Brooks and the Grizzlies to snag the 113-101 victory. The win clinched the 8-seed for Golden State and sent Memphis back home for a date with the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday in the first game of the play-in tournament.
Curry proved to be the Warriors guiding light on Sunday, scoring 31 second half points to lock up the win. Two of his career-high 22 three-point attempts came in the final two minutes and proved to be daggers to the Grizzlies comeback.
