Curry charges the Warriors into a series against LeBron and the Lakers in an epic feat

Sacrament. Stephen Curry set a playoff career high by scoring 50 points in a decisive Game 7 and brought the Golden State Warriors back to their quest for a repeat championship with a 120-100 win over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. The Sacramento Kings reached the Western Conference Semifinals.

He surpassed former teammate Kevin Durant’s 48 for the Nets against Milwaukee in 2021 for the seventh-most points in a game in NBA history. Kevon Looney was another standout with 21 rebounds.

After trailing 2-0 in the series, the Warriors needed to win two games on the road against a hostile Sacramento crowd. Losing their first two games, they became the first defending league champions to win a postseason series.

Now, Golden State faces LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers in the West semifinals, which could spark James’ NBA Finals appearance against the Warriors during his time with Cleveland.

The first game is Tuesday night at the Chase Center in San Francisco.

Sacramento — ranked No. 3 in the West — bid farewell after a resurgent season under Coach of the Year winner Mike Brown. After ending a 16-year playoff drought, the longest in NBA history, Sacramento failed to advance to the second round for the first time since 2004.
