Stephen Curry exploded for 41 points on 13-of-23 shooting (7-of-14 3-pointers) with nine rebounds, two assists, and two steals as the Warriors beat the Blazers 119-97 on Friday evening. "Chef Curry" was in regular-season form on Friday as he looked like his vintage self for the Warriors, who finished their preseason undefeated at 5-0. Curry was also 8-of-10 from the foul line, which is a bad night at the foul line considering he's been at or above 90% in eight of his NBA seasons. Curry and the Warriors will tip off the regular season on Tuesday against the Lakers at 10:00pm.

Russell Westbrook dropped a stat line of 18 points, three rebounds, five dimes, three steals and three turnovers in a to loss the Kings on Thursday. The three turnovers were a breath of fresh air as he was not doing so hot in that category in other preseason games. He looked a bit more under control for the most part and had a nice give-and-go sequence with DeAndre Jordan early in the night. With a team consisting of LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Brodie’s days of getting nightly triples doubles is likely over, but he’ll still get plenty of counting stats to warrant a third-round pick. Keep in mind that the turnovers are sure to be a problem, however.
