Steph Curry Turns MSG Into Studio 54

[embedvideo id=”uHyAtP3FHTw” website=”youtube”]

Stephen Curry had a night to remember at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night as he torched the New York Knicks for 54 spectacular points in a 109-105 loss. Curry shot an incredible 11 for 13 from downtown and had the Garden crowd in a nervous frenzy throughout.

Curry played the entire 48 minutes in this contest and scored 51.4% of the Warriors’ total points on the night.

While Curry’s Golden State Warriors were unable to claim victory on the night, they certainly showed a lot of heart while missing the services of David Lee (suspension) and Andrew Bogut (bask spasms).

Lost in the Curry-sanity of the evening were the following fun New York Knicks facts:

  • Tyson Chandler eclipsed his former career-high in rebounds by five, collecting 28. (10 offensive)
  • JR Smith’s shot looked better than ever, connecting on half a dozen timely triples of his own.
  • Carmelo Anthony scored a solid 35 points.
  • Kenyon Martin made his New York Knicks debut.
  • Iman Shumpert collected six steals in 22 minutes.

No one seemed to care about any of these things though as the night belonged to Curry. Take a look at his shot chart to get an idea of the madness.

A historic night for Curry, a much needed win for the New York Knicks.

On to the next one.
