Curry revels in Warriors return

Curry had been out of action since December 4 due to a sprained ankle, but led the scoring with 38 points - including 10 three-pointers - in a 141-128 win for the defending champions on Saturday.

The talismanic guard became the only player this season with 35 points entering the fourth quarter while playing fewer than 25 minutes and he revelled in being back on the big stage.

"I was excited, it felt like the first day of school again, for real." said Curry.
