Despite Curry’s Effort, Warriors Still Don’t Beat Knicks

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Knicks got the win but Stephen Curry receives the headlines. Curry scored an NBA season high of 54 points, hitting 11 3-pointers, but the New York Knicks withstood Curry and the Golden State Warriors, 109-105.

With 1:28 left in the game, Raymond Felton finally found a way to stop Curry, as Felton blocked Curry's shot. That led to a J.R. Smith basket that gave the Knicks the lead for good.

Despite the loss, Curry's stats were ridiculous. He shot 18 of 28 from the field and hit 11 of 13 3-pointers. If he would have hit one more three he would have tied Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall for the most ever in a game.

Curry was asked if he knew he was closing in on the 3-point record.

"Not really until my teammates started jabbing at me," Curry said. "They (teammates) were in my ear treating me like a pitcher throwing a no-hitter. They were not touching my right hand and all that funny stuff. I knew I was knocking down a lot of shots. I knew it was a good night. I just didn't realize exactly what that meant."

The Knicks (34-20) have now won two straight after having previously lost four in a row.

The Warriors (33-25) will now get a day off before they play their fourth game of a five game road trip on Friday against the Celtics.
