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.
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.
