Golden State Warriors' guard Stephen Curry has picked up exactly where he left off last season, with another performance showing MVP quality.
The current MVP put up 21 points in the first quarter alone against the Minnesota Timberwolves last night, in what ended up being a 129-116 win, and continuing their undefeated start to the season as they are now 10-0.
This was Curry's fourth 20-plus point quarter of the year, and it is a pretty incredible achievement considering throughout last season entirely, Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook had the highest amount of 20-plus point quarters with four.
