Golden State Warriors standout Stephen Curry added to his growing reputation last night with a stunning performance against the Miami Heat last night, scoring a game-high 36 points in a 123-114 victory which extended their winning streak to seven games.
Curry made eight-three pointers at the American Airlines Arena, the same as the entire Heat roster, while also adding 12 assists and four steals in a dominant display.
Miami were simply unable to match Curry's clutch shooting down the stretch, with LeBron James left in the shade and forced to admit that on current form the Warriors talisman is pretty much unstoppable.
James told USA Today: "Curry was spectacular. If he doesn't make the All-Star team, I might retire.
"He is one of the best shooters this NBA will see. I mean, if you can find a better shooter than him right now, especially with the way he handles the ball, and the light that he has, it's more than green, it's fluorescent. You just hope that he misses."
"I looked at the stat sheet at one point and he was seven of 13 from the three-point line and I was seven of 12 from the field. I was like, `He's got more 3-point attempts than I got field goal attempts."
Golden State's 123-point haul was the most points Miami have conceded in regular time of a game with James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in the same line-up.
Miami are now 1.5 game's behind Eastern Conference leaders the Indiana Pacers with a 24-8 record, while the Warriors march up to sixth in the West with the longest active in the winning streak in the NBA today.
