NBA -- Curry's 47 not enough to rescue Warriors from Blazers

SAN FRANCISCO -- All-Star Stephen Curry sizzled for 47 points on 16 of 29 shooting from the filed including 7-for-14 from 3-point range.
But it wasn't enough as the Golden State Warriors fell to the Portland Trail Blazers in overtime, 119-117, Sunday night at the Moda Center.
LaMarcus Aldridge had 26 for Portland and Wes Matthews added 24. The Blzers clinched the 5th seed in the Western Conference with a 53-28 record and they are poised to meet the 4th-ranked 53-27 Houston Rockets in the opening round of the playoffs which kicks off on April 19.
"That was a fun game, a crazy game. We'd make a shot, they'd come back right at us, craziest game of the year," Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum told NBA.com after scoring 18 and 12 rebounds to help foil Golden State.
At 49-31, the Warriors remained at No.6 in the Western Conference and will likely play the No.3 Los Angeles Clippers in Round 1 of the playoffs. (JSM)
