As fate would have it, the only thing to slow down Stephen Curry Sunday night were Corey Brewer’s fingernails. Not a left ankle. Not a right ankle. Fingernails.
Curry, bothered since Game 2 with a hobbled left ankle, had to briefly come out of the game in the fourth quarter when Brewer inadvertently scratched him in the eye on a rebound. But by then, the game was well in control for the Curry and the Warriors.
Thanks to an utterly dominant third quarter in which he hit shots from all over the court and maybe even a taco truck on International Boulveard, Curry led the Warriors to an easy 115-101 victory Sunday night to put the Nuggets in a stranglehold in the series with a 3-1 lead.
Curry poured in 31 points (10-of-16 FG’s, 6-of-11 3′s) on the night, but it were his 22 points in the third that electrified the Oracle crowd and put the Nuggets on the ropes. The Warriors entered halftime with a 12-point lead and thanks to Curry extended the advantage to 19 after three.
