Whatever concerns the Warriors had about expelling a three-day-old bad taste in their mouths ended when Stephen Curry hit his first shot. Then his second and third. Curry scored 39 points, and Golden State bounced back from one of its most disappointing losses of the season with a 125-98 rout of Portland on Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd of 19,596 at Oracle Arena. "We are witnessing one of the great shooters that have ever played this game," coach Mark Jackson said of Curry, who had his most prolific scoring game since erupting for an NBA season-best 54 points against the New York Knicks on Feb. 27.
