Stephen Curry is arguably the greatest shooter of all-time. He has transcended the game of basketball and changed the way people looked at the game, forever. Because of his success taking three-pointers, the rest of the league started putting more emphasis on taking threes.

With his ridiculous shooting, he can change the course of the game single-handedly and is a nightmare to guard for the defenders because of his ability to knock down threes off-the-dribble with high precision.

Curry's 54 point performance could not defeat the Knicks

Stat from three-point line: 11-of-13

Stephen Curry has in his 4th season in the NBA and the Warriors were off to a 33-24 start and were looking for a spot in the playoffs. The Knicks were 33-20 and hosted their Western Conference rival for a game at Madison Square Garden.

Curry went nasty and scored career-high 54 points but the supporting crew did not show up and the Warriors had to lose this one. He was ridiculous from beyond the arc and went 11-13 from distance. Apart from Curry, none of the starters scored in double digits but the Warriors still lost by just 4 points. This shows how Curry dominated that night.

He did not hesitate to take shots even with the defenders covering him fully and made them with high accuracy(84.6). He was also perfect from the free-throw line and went 7-7.
