Stephen Curry is on fire! Steph had the game of his life on Wednesday night as the Warriors faced off against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Curry set the NBA season-high scoring 54 points in a Warriors loss 109-105. Curry was 18 of 28 from the field, finishing one 3-pointer shy of the NBA record with 11 of 13 attempts. This also comes on the second night of a back-to-back where Curry scored 38. Check out the highlights:
Steph Curry’s 54 points are the 3rd most for a visiting player at MSG since 1968. The other 2? Michael Jordan (55) & Kobe Bryant (61). Curry also added seven assists, six rebounds and three steals. Carmelo Anthony had 35 points for the Knicks, while J.R. Smith had 26 and six three-pointers. Tyson Chandler had 16 points and a career-high 28 rebounds.
I guess that makes up for being tossed to the ground by Pacers Roy Hibbert the night before. And, in an ode to his former Knicks-playing head coach, Mark Jackson, Curry even hit his own version of a shimmy.
