Curry was virtually unstoppable in his 54-point effort and hit a career-high 11 three-pointers, including four straight at one point in the second quarter. He had 23 points in the second, his most ever in a single frame.
He broke the Warriors' franchise record of nine three-pointers, which was previously held by Dorell Wright. If the sports world didn't know there was a special player in Curry playing in the proverbial bubble known as the West Coast, they all do now. It couldn't have been more apropos for him to put his incredible talent on display in Basketball Mecca. Again, it's a shame the loss overshadowed it.
As expected, his performance garnered plenty of reaction from folks around Twitter:
Curry said his teammates were treating him like he was throwing a no hitter, no talking about it on bench & not touching right hand— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) February 28, 2013

"To the viewing audience that's getting hot. To us, that's Steph Curry. A knock-down shooter as good as anyone who's played." @jacksonmark13— Golden St. Warriors (@warriors) February 28, 2013
