Curry sparkles as Warriors roll Thunder to level series
Curry seized control of the contest with a spellbinding third-quarter points blitz as the Warriors squared the series at 1-1 heading into Sunday's game three in Oklahoma City.
The 27-point blowout victory preserved Golden State's remarkable season-long record of never having suffered back-to-back defeats.
"Our ball movement was a lot better tonight. We got it going side to side and set screens and found easier shots and thankfully they went down," a relieved Curry said. "That's the way we've got to play going forward."
Curry meanwhile played down what looked like a swelling on his right elbow which appeared after he tumbled into the stands.
"We'll get freshened up and get ready for another dogfight on Sunday," Curry said.
"That's what this series is going to be about -- who wants to be more physical."
Warriors coach Steve Kerr paid tribute to Curry's virtuoso display.
"He's the MVP for a reason and he knows he didn't have his best night in Game One. He came out and played exceptionally well," Kerr said. "Business as usual. This is what he does."
"They were playing well and they had some momentum; I just know we made some stops and Steph got loose," Kerr said.
"That's what Steph does, when he can find some space and make a few threes in front of the home crowd it's a huge boost."
