Warriors' Stephen Curry explodes for 54 points in loss to Knicks
By Ben Golliver
"I felt good all night," Curry said, according to the Associated Press. "Obviously played the whole game, so was just trying to keep my legs underneath me on the offensive end, and you know, just stick to the game on the defensive end. Once I started seeing that 3-ball go down in transition, all sorts of spots on the floor, I knew it was going to be a good night.''
The fourth-year guard shot 18-for-28 (64.3 percent) from the field, hit a franchise-record 11 three-pointers in 13 attempts and was a 7-for-7 from the free-throw line. Curry outscored his teammates 54-51 and made as many shots as them combined (18). He added seven assists, six rebounds and three steals in 48 minutes.
