Curry & Co. - Nothing But Net(s)

Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors won game 4 to tie the playoff series against the L.A. Clippers 2-2.  It was all about the Warriors fast pace pressure style of play that pushed the Clips into comeback chase mode early.  

Led by Curry's 33pts, the Warriors played Warrior ball and dominantly entertained the Oracle Arena crowd.  Shout out to Warriors enforcer, #23 Draymond Green. While Curry set the pace, Draymond set the punch.  

The Clippers can't help but be affected in one way or another by all the talk about their owner's recent racist remarks.   Its a shame and a black eye on the franchise and the league, but the games must go on. And on they'll play as game five tips off Tuesday (4/29) at 7:30pm at the Staples Center Arena in Los Angeles .

As for today's game, it was Steph Curry leading the way once again, hitting 7-14 3-pointers and just being Flame On from start to finish. Curry set the tone and the Warriors to a man delivered.  Its called leadership. 
Hats off to coach Mark Jackson for pointing the way, sticking with what worked and keeping the team energized to the end.  Without Jackson, the Warriors would be unprepared and ill-equipped defensively. After all these years, they've learned how to start and finish as a team. Thanks Coach!

Steph Curry visited Tanzania, Africa  in the summer of 2013 to the season in an effort to assist in the fight against Malaria. During the 2012-13 season, every 3pt shot that Steph made donated three malaria nets to the cause.  His NBA single season three-pointer record of 272 saw 816 bed nets delivered to help hundreds of families avoid malaria infection.  The Nothing But Nets campaign is a United Nations Foundation program.

Final Score
Clippers 97
Warriors 118
