Steven Curry once again shone for the Golden State Warriors as the the defending NBA champions thrashed the New York Knicks to extend their staggering record regular-season home winning streak to 50 games.
Curry – the reigning MVP – had already become the first player in NBA history to reach 300 three-pointers during a single season, but he kept on adding to his record in Oakland.
Curry shot 8 for 13 from long range and 12 of 20 from the floor as he ended the night with a game high 34 points – he now has 330 three-pointers to his name this campaign with 15 games to go.
Such was Golden State’s dominance in the early stages Curry was rested for the entire fourth quarter.
His team managed perfectly well without him as Steve Kerr’s champions cruised to a 121-85 victory.
