OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry got the Warriors back to even, and now they get ready for their favorite part of the game.
Curry drained a three-pointer from about 30 feet to beat the halftime buzzer, tying Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) at 56-all. Golden State had trailed by 11 points earlier in the second quarter before a strong finish.
Curry had 18 points, while LeBron James led all scorers with 24.
Now the teams regroup before a quarter the Warriors dominate. They have outscored opponents 519-389 in the postseason, a difference of 130 points, and turned around both Game 6 and 7 against Houston in the Western Conference finals with huge runs in that period.
