Stephen Curry took his younger brother to the woolshed in a brutally dominant display of firepower in the Warriors’ western conference finals series opener.
As Steph and brother Seth created history as the first two brothers to ever come up against each other in a conference finals series, it quickly emerged that the Portland star was out of his league.
Steph Curry fired a red-hot eight three-pointers in the first three quarters and had a game-high 33 points as the Warriors took a six-point lead into the final quarter.
Steph’s eight bombs from downtown saw him threaten the NBA Playoffs record of 11 three-pointers made in a single game.
He also joined James Harden, LeBron James and Kevin Durant as the only four players currently in the game to have scored 34 or more 30-point games in the Playoffs.

Now Steph is just front-running on the poor Blazers. Total arrogant humiliation of the visitors. This game is over.

Curry was simply unstoppable early in the game. It could have even been worse for Portland.
Curry was forced to the dressing rooms in the second quarter to receive precautionary treatment on his knee.
He returned spitting fire.
Seth finally made his mark in the game dubbed the “Curry Bowl” when he scored his first bucket in the fourth quarter.
Before then Stephen Curry had led his older brother 33-0 in their scoring duel.
