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.
