OAKLAND (AP) – Stephen Curry pulled one of Michael Jordan’s old famous playbook and shook like no big deal.

Nah, not at all. Just another 3 pointer from the center.

Curry laughed when he was highlighting the floor and scored 51 points and ended with 11 3 pointers in just three quarters of the Golden State Warriors 144-122 victory over the Washington guides on Wednesday night.

“The last 3 in the first quarter was probably the most fun I’ve experienced in court. Two guys on our team scream from the time I was in the free kick:” Do not pass it! Do not Match It! You better shoot it! & # 39; All that type, Curry said. “It goes through my head while I’m dribbling. It’s kind of all motivation you just need to start it. Thank you, it went in.”

Trainer Steve Kerr could not even be upset when his superstar made it fly from what distance he wanted: “You have a guy who takes 40 feet and you’re on the sidelines,” Yes, that’s a good shot, “said Kerr .

Kevin Durant added 30 points, eight rebounds and seven winners and Draymond Green had 11 of his 12 assists in the first half to assist two-time defending champion finishes with 37 after dishing out 35 assists in a 20-point victory against Phoenix on Monday.

But this was all Curry’s show. No. 30 slammed its 11th night late in the third from 32 feet back .

“It’s just one of those nights you’re just having fun playing the game,” said Curry. “Takes some t gskott and try to keep it as long as I’m out on the floor. “

He scored 31 in the first half, finished with his sixth career 50-point games and scored 10 or more 3s for the tenth time. The 51 points matched his most at the Oracle Arena.

Curry hit his first five 3 pointers after his fifth drove in the basket and was fouled. He made two free throws to “MVP! MVP!” The two-hour winner of the award had the ninth 30th point of his career and fourth home.

“It was a pleasure to be in the same court with it. It was sick,” said Durant. [19659008] “MVP!” bowl continued. Curry shot 15-for-24, 11-for-16 from the 3-point range, making all 10 free throws, missed his career no more than 54 in February 2013 with three points.

“He was, I do not even know how to describe what I witnessed tonight, amazing video games stuff,” says Kerr. “… Some of the shooting was just unpleasant. No one has ever done what he does, pulling up from I do not know, 32.” MORE NBA
