Stephen Curry returned to Game 4 of the Warriors and Trail Blazers second round playoff series after being out for two weeks due to injury.

He missed his first nine 3-point attempts. Then he hit five treys in the final 10 minutes en route to 17 points in overtime and a comeback win for Golden State.

His phenomenal late-game performance was fueled by one thing: confidence. The recently announced first-time ever unanimous MVP selection said after Game 4 to The Mercury News‘ Diamond Leung:

“My confidence never wavered. I don't think you shoot nine shots from 3 without making one of them if you don't have confidence. I thought I was taking some pretty good ones and hoped that eventually they would fall.”

The Warriors now carry a 3-1 series as the series returns to Oakland for Game 5 on Wednesday.
