Curry Scores 54 Points in Warriors Loss
A historic performance from Stephen Curry in a historic building wasn’t enough as the Warriors fell short at Madison Square Garden, losing 109-105 to the Knicks.
Curry set a new NBA single-game high for the season with 54 points, topping the 52 Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant scored against Dallas on Jan. 18.
For Warriors coach Mark Jackson, who played his college ball at Madison Square Garden while at St. John’s and spent parts of six seasons with the Knicks, watching Curry go off at the Garden brought back memories.
“I’ve seen a lot of great performances in this building, and his goes up there,” Jackson said. “I’ve seen a lot, but that shooting performance was a thing of beauty.”
