Warriors guard Stephen Curry put on a show in the first half of Monday’s game against the Hawks.

Curry scored 19 points on 7-of-9 shooting and added seven assists to help give Golden State a 58–39 lead. He also made two stunning highlight plays. 

Early in the first quarter, Curry drove into the lane, spun to avoid a defender and managed to find Harrison Barnes waiting on the wing for an open three-pointer. 

BALLARD: Dirk Nowitzki on life, hoops and Hasselhoff

In the final seconds of the first half, some tough defense by Jeff Teague caused Curry to briefly lose control of the ball but Curry was still able to hit a fade-away jumper. 

Curry’s teammate Shaun Livingston also had a nice dunk in the second quarter.
