There is something about MSG and big individual performances. Last night Stephen Curry had a career-high 54 points against the New York Knicks.

Steph Curry followed up his 38-point night against the Indiana Pacers with a career night. Despite the Knicks coming out on top, Curry was the man of the night, dropping 54 points, which marks not only his personal career-high, but also the highest amount of points a player has assembled in one game this season.

Curry is quickly establishing himself as probably the best shooter in the NBA and what better place to show it than Madison Square Garden. He shot 18-28 on the night, setting a Golden State Warriors franchise record in three-pointers in a single game, dropping 11 of his 13 attempts from beyond the arc.

Certainly an admirable performance by a great player. Well done Steph Curry.
