Recap: Portland vs. Golden State

Portland, OR (Sports Network) - Stephen Curry knocked down his second 3- pointer of the night with 6:49 left in the second quarter to pass Ray Allen for the most 3-point field goals in a season as the Golden State Warriors finished the regular season on a high note with a 99-88 win over the Portland Trail Blazers at Rose Garden.

Curry began the game 1-for-7 before finding space on the right wing midway through the second stanza for his record-breaking triple. He finished the night with 15 points and five assists.

Klay Thompson paced the Warriors (47-35) with 24 points while David Lee registered his league-leading 56th double-double of the season with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Aldridge netted two quick baskets for the Blazers to put them up 4-2, but Thompson responded with a 3-pointer to give the Warriors an early lead, which they held for the duration of the game. Golden State led 24-17 after the opening stanza in which Aldridge scored 14 of the 17 points for the home team.

Portland ended the third on a 9-2 run, capped by Sasha Pavlovic's 3-pointer with 2.9 left on the clock, to get back within three heading into the final 12 minutes.
