It appears that Stephen Curry is ready for true prime-time, in the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets.


Curry played 37 minutes the most since missing nearly six weeks with a knee injury and scored 28 points to push the Golden State Warriors over the New Orleans Pelicans 113-104 in Game 5 on Tuesday night.


Golden State will appear in their fourth straight conference finals.

I feel confident in what I'm able to do out there. Timing could still get a little bit better with the ball and things like that when you start to get so excited, still when I'm out there missing six weeks is still appreciative of being out there playing.

"I'll continue to get better, continue to get my timing right, continue to get back to the normal rotation, the normal minutes I'm out there playing and hopefully won't look back," Curry said post-game.


Curry also had eight assists and seven rebounds. What's greater is the incredible efficiency he scored those 28 on just 16 shots. He shot 3-of-6 from three and made all five of his free throws.


Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson also went for 20 plus points. 


Not to be left out, Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis went out with a bang, scoring 34 points with 19 rebounds and four blocks.
