SAN FRANCISCO — Stephen Curry capped a memorable night with a long 3-pointer on the way to a career-high 62 points, and the Golden State Warriors beat Portland 137-122 on Sunday night to split a two-game set with the Trail Blazers.

Curry had the highest-scoring game in the NBA this season, finishing 18 for 31 overall and 8 of 16 on 3-pointers after beginning with a 21-point first quarter. He had his 10th career 30-point half to help the Warriors take a 66-54 at the break.

One small blemish in his brilliant night: Curry had his streak of free throws snapped at a franchise-record 80, though he made a career-high 18 against Portland on 19 attempts.
