PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Adding insult to injury, the Wikipedia page for the Portland Trail Blazers reflected a new owner after the team's loss to the Golden State Warriors Monday night.

The page listed Warriors point guard Stephen Curry as the Blazers' owner.

The Blazers fell to the Warriors 132-125 in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Curry, who is expected to be named the NBA's MVP, was playing for the first time since he was injured in the first round of the playoffs.

A Warriors fan apparently thought the Blazers' Wikipedia page needed to reflect Curry's 'ownership' of Portland's team.

Anyone with an Internet connection can edit a page on Wikipedia, which aims to be an open-source encyclopedia.

Wikipedia's edit history for the Blazers' page shows a number of edits Monday night and Tuesday morning, including one in which the team's owner was changed to 'Golden State.'

By Tuesday morning, the page had been changed back to show the team's actual owner, Seattle businessman and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.

The Warriors have a 3-1 lead over the Blazers in the semifinals. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Oakland.
