Stephen Curry netted a season-high 50 points and 10 assists as the Golden State Warriors defeated Atlanta Hawks 127-113 on Monday, for their fifth straight win.
Steph Curry added 10 assists to give him his first double-double in a 50-point game. It was the 10th career 50-point game for the 33-year-old.
In 35 minutes of playing time, Curry grabbed seven rebounds, shot nine-of-19 from the three-point line and was a perfect 13-of-13 from the free-throw line. A crowd of 18,060 chanted “MVP, MVP” when he shot the ball.
Curry basked in the glory of the moment, electrifying the Warrior crowd by waving his arms and dominating during several stretches of the game. He scored the Warriors’ first 13 points and also delivered a 10-point unanswered scoring burst in the third quarter.
Curry gave the Chase Center fans in San Francisco a scare in the first quarter when he appeared to injure his shoulder. After seeking medical attention on the sidelines during a timeout, he decided to stay in the game.
Jordan Poole chipped in 16 points, while Andrew Wiggins had 13 for the Warriors. Trae Young scored 28 points and added nine assists to lead the Hawks.
Recall that Curry had been held to 20 or fewer points in four consecutive games, but in the game with the Hawks, he finished 14-for-28 from the field, nine-for-19 on three-point attempts and 13-for-13 at the foul line as the Western Conference leaders improved their record to 9-1.
