DAMNNNN STEPH!! Back at it again dropping buckets!
Steph Curry does not disappoint. After scoring 40 points in a close game against the Miami Heat, he took it up a notch and scored 51 points in a 130-114 win against the Orlando Magic. He had things clicking from all cylinders last night, shooting 20-of-27 from the field and 10-of-15 from behind the arc. With Steph’s first made three of the game, he broke the record for the most consecutive games (128) with a three-pointer made. Head coach of the Magic, Scott Skiles doesn’t see that streak ending anytime soon.
“I have a hard time seeing how that streak is ever going to end. It would have to be kind of a fluke night.”
Last night’s 51 point performance was Curry’s 3rd occurrence of 50 or more for the season. In addition to his big scoring output, he also had 8 assists, 7 rebounds, and a half court buzzer beater to end the third quarter.

Curry was on one last night and the Golden State Warriors added another W to the win column putting them at 52-5. With a night off on Friday, they have a tough match-up on Saturday, playing Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook at Oklahoma City. Let’s just hope they don’t stay in the same hotel that Kyrie Irving stayed in.
