Steph Curry is back.

He delivered that message loud and clear.

Curry, who missed almost all of last season with a broken hand, dropped a career-high 62 points in the Golden State Warriors’ 137-122 win over the Portland Trail Blazers at the Chase Center on Sunday night.

Curry didn’t waste any time, either.

He sprinted out of the gate, putting up 21 points in the opening quarter while shooting 7-of-11 from the field.

He added 10 more by halftime, and was nearly all of Golden State’s offense. No teammate had more than just six points to his name when they went into the locker room with a 12-point lead.

Curry hit the 50-point mark with time to spare in the fourth quarter, hitting a mid-range jumper with Gary Trent right on his back.

Curry drained six free throws before sinking back-to-back 3-point buckets in the final seconds to solidify his 62-point night and secure the 15-point win for the Warriors.

Curry finished shooting 18-of-31 from the field and 8-of-16 from behind the arc in his 36 minutes. Andrew Wiggins added 21 for the Warriors, who fell to Portland on Friday, and Kelly Oubre added 17.

Damian Lillard led Portland with 32 points in the loss, and CJ McCollum added 28 points with nine rebounds.
