Steph Curry went off for a season-high 51 points on Wednesday (Feb. 4) during their 128-114 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.
His scoring performance helped his team rally back from an early 22-point deficit, in which he sank 10 of 16 shots from beyond the arc and 16 of 26 overall.
Curry scored 26 points in the third quarter alone to help the NBA-leading Warriors (39-8) complete their biggest comeback of the season in front of a sellout home crowd of 19,596.
“If I had any kind of daylight off the pick-and-roll, I was going to shoot it,” Curry said. “I had a good feel and a good rhythm.”
Chandler Parsons scored 24 points, and Tyson Chandler had 21 points and 17 rebounds in a disappointing defeat for Dallas, who played without injured point guard Rajon Rondo again.
