Stephen Curry's beautiful teardrop highlights Warriors' win over Wizards

Stephen Curry is more than just a shooter. 

In a 32-point, 8-assist performance after returning from injury, Curry paced the Warriors 114-107 win over the Wizards on Tuesday night. Like he's done all season, Curry scored from a variety of distances and angles, including this magnificent teardrop:

The Wizards dropped to 33-24 after the loss, their ninth defeat in the last 11 games. 

John Wall struggled in his matchup with Curry, scoring only 16 points on 8-of-18 shooting and missing all four of his three-point attempts. Paul Pierce picked up the slack with 25 points of his own, but it wasn't enough for Golden State's balanced attack. 

The top seed in the Western conference, the Warriors received 17 points from Klay Thompson while Draymond Green hit three three-pointers en route to 13 points. The Warriors improved 20-8 on the road and 44-10 overall, bouncing back from a loss to the Indiana Pacers on Sunday. 

Washington heads on the road for its next two games, while Golden State's next game will also be on the road—a matchup with LeBron James' Cavaliers on Thursday.
