>> His coach may have said it best. Stephen Curry is doing things that nobody's ever done before. His latest dazzling feat, scoring 51 points Thursday night against the Orlando Magic, leading the Golden State Warriors to a 130-114 win. Among Curry's offensive arsenal, ten three pointers, a half court bank shot at the third quarter buzzer, and just one free throw.
And with his performance, an NBA record, 128 straight games with at least one 3 point bucket. It was also Curry's third game of the season scoring 50 points or more, something no other Warrior has achieved in nearly 45 years. And he did this after scoring 42 points the night before.
Normally rough edged, sports writers now running out of accolades for the NBA's reigning MVP. Calling his performance mind bending. Pushing the game beyond limits we even considered. Pretty good for a guy once called Middle School by teammates for his boyish appearance. The Golden State Warriors, last season's champs, boosting their record to 52 and 5 with the victory.
