Stephen Curry dropped 29 points on Portland last night, to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 125-121 win and a playoff series victory over the Trail Blazers. That propels the Warriors into the Western Conference Finals against the winner of the Oklahoma City-San Antonio series.

In the east, LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers have already clinched a spot in the conference finals, and will play the winner of the Toronto-Miami series. Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti gets an NBA playoff update from Here & Now sports analyst Mike Pesca, host of the daily podcast The Gist at Slate.com.
