NEW ORLEANS – Thanks to MVP frontrunner Steph Curry’s 40 points, the Golden State Warriors pulled off the third-largest comeback in NBA history to beat the New Orleans Pelicans, 123-119.

Down 20 points in the fourth quarter, Golden State would rally late—and thanks to Curry’s miraculous game-tying three-pointer with 2.8 seconds remaining in regulation–send the game into overtime. Golden State would go on to take a 3-0 lead in their best of seven series.


For the game, Curry shot 10-of-29 from the field, go 7-of-18 from three-point range and record nine assists.

Buoyed by a sold-out red-clad Smoothie King Center crowd, the young Pelicans used some of that energy to build a 89-69 lead after three quarters.

After that, it was all Golden State.

The NBA-leading Warriors would outscore the Pelicans 39-19 to send it into overtime, and close the game by outscoring New Orleans 15-11 in overtime.

Klay Thompson scored 28 points, Draymond Green had 12 and Harrison Barnes added 11 points for the Warriors. In a losing effort, Anthony Davis recorded a double-double in scoring 29 points and 15 rebounds, Tyreke Evans scored 19 and Ryan Anderson added 26 points off the bench.
