Saying Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is flame emojis is an understatement. Steph dropped 51 points on the Washington Wizards in under 36 minutes on the floor in the 134-121 win on Wednesday night.
Steph was so hot, teammate Draymond Green poured ice water on him following the game to cool him off. Draymond had a nice night too, he had a triple-double 12 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists.
Curry averages a league best 29.4 points per game was shooting 38.3% from the floor before lighting the Wizards up on ESPN. The Warriors will make their White House visit on Thursday.
Golden State’s league-leading 45-4 mark matches the 1966-67 Philadelphia 76ers’ mark for the best record through 49 games in NBA history. It also means they’re one game ahead of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls during their run to a record-setting 72-10 season.
Curry tied a career-high, hitting 11 3-pointers in only 16 attempts. It was his fourth career 50-point game, and his second 50+ game of the season.
