Stephen Curry had an unforgettable night in their last match against Los Angeles Lakers, missing all his three-point attempts, which was unheard from the Warriors star. But Curry, after that disappointing performance, was determined to prove that he is one of the best, if not the best, sharp shooters in the game as he scored 13 three-pointers en route to his 46-point display to beat New Orleans Pelicans on Monday.
When Curry is in such mood, one cannot do anything but admire his shooting skills. He only missed four three-pointers against the Pelicans. With 13 three-pointers to his name, Curry set an NBA record, beating Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall's 12 three-point record.
Though Curry grabbed the attention with his stupendous display, one should not forget the supporting cast -- Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, who scored 22 and 24 point each. This seems, just to be the beginning of the trio's dominance, and if they show similar form throughout the season, Warriors can be unstoppable.
The Warriors might have been dominant in the first half, outscoring the Pelicans in the first two quarters, the visitors looked a strong team in the second half challenging Curry and co. Despite a good second half, the Warriors, with red-hot Curry, were unstoppable, and won the match by 10 points, 116-106.
If Curry was the bright spot for Warriors, Anthony Davis, who has been the star player for the Pelicans, was the biggest threat with his dazzling moves on the floor. Davis top-scored with 33 points in a losing cause, and the Pelicans are still searching for their first win of the season. They will hope things, and also lady luck, turns around in their favour when they play Sacramento Kings on Tuesday.
The Warriors, with five wins and two losses, will hope to move upwards as they face Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday.
