Stephen Curry was out to make a statement -- a day after getting treated like the Hulk smashing Loki in The Avengers. Curry scored a career-high 54 points and hit 11 3-pointers Wednesday. That's a franchise record. Unfortunately for him, it wasn't enough. Golden State fell 109-105to to the New York Knicks.
Curry added six rebounds, seven assists and three steals in a line that won't likely be topped Wednesday. But he didn't get much help.
Klay Thompson scored just six points on 3-of-13 shooting. Harrison Barnes scored three. Jarrett Jack pitched in 14 points, and Carl Landry added 15.
The Knicks were too much, powered by 35 points from Carmelo Anthony.
The good J.R. Smith showed up and knocked down six 3-pointers for 26 points.
