Steph Curry sets NBA Finals record with first quarter blitz against Celtics

..............................

"It took Steph Curry just 12 minutes to set a NBA Finals record on Thursday night at Chase Center."

................

"Curry’s six 3-pointers marked the most by a player in an individual quarter of the NBA Finals as he nailed 6-of-8 attempts in Game 1 at Chase Center against the Boston Celtics."

"Curry finished the quarter with 21 points on 7-of-9 from the field as he also went 1-for-2 from the free throw line."

"The 21 points are the most Curry has ever scored in the first quarter of a playoff game and just two shy of his playoff career-high of 23 points in a quarter."

"According to ESPN Stats & Info, Curry’s 21 first-quarter points are the most in a Finals quarter since Michael Jordan had 22 in the fourth quarter of Game 4 against Phoenix in 1993."

"The Warriors’ star played all 12 minutes and gave the Celtics continuous problems on the defensive end of the floor, racing around the court to create open looks."

"Despite Curry’s brilliance from beyond the arc, the Celtics largely kept pace with the Warriors as Golden State only finished the first quarter with a 32-28 lead."
