A Record Night For Steph Curry As The Warriors Defeat The Knicks 105-96
The Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks tipped off from Madison Square Garden on a historic night. Steph Curry is now the all-time NBA leader in 3 point shots made after passing Ray Allen who fittingly was on the call. It didn’t take long to tie the record in the 1st quarter before hitting a fitting long-range bomb from 3 to break the record. The Crowd erupted and Curry celebrated with his team, family, and everyone else in attendance. It was an amazing moment as The legends would embrace. 2974 3 pointers! Congrats Stephen Curry!
We still had a game to play and after the break, the Knicks would go on a bit of a run thanks to Derrick Rose but another Curry 3 would cut the lead late. Rose would try and match him and end the quarter with 10 points. Julius Randle would also try and get into things with some baskets of his own as the teams were tied at 24.
The Knicks would push to start the 2nd quarter and take a 30-26 lead. Curry would hit a 3 of his own and the Warriors would pull back to within 1. With Curry on the bench, the Knicks would pull out to a 41-35 lead with 5:30 remaining in the half thanks to a Miles McBride 3. A Randle jumper would extend the lead but as soon as Stephen returned to the floor the Warriors would make a run with a great pass to Draymond Green for the flush that helped cap a 6-0 run. The Knicks would take a 48-47 lead into the half

The 3rd quarter started very slow and the first field goal didn’t come until the 8:23 mark as Curry would find Kevon Looney on the Fast break to tie it up at 49. Julius Randle would get hot and tie it at 54 from 3 before this great no-look pass from Stephen Curry to find Jordan Poole. Randle would respond with another 3 as the scoring was coming in spurts. Curry would hit a nice floater off the glass before nailing a big 3 to give the Warriors the 69-61 lead. The Knicks would go into the 4th quarter down 71-64 after a huge alley opp from Mitchell Robinson to end the quarter.
After a bucket from the Knicks Curry would hit a nice layup, Both teams were shooting much better, except for Draymond but he provided other things to the team, oh hey a 3! Julius Randle would do everything he could in the 4th quarter but it was;t enough. He would hit from beyond the arc and would lead all scoring with 31 points 7 rebounds and 3 assists but it wasn’t enough as the Warriors would hold on for the 105-96 victory on Stephen Curry’s special night.
Curry would finish with a team-high 22 points but shot just 50% from the field. It didn’t matter as he now holds the record and the Golden State Warriors move to an NBA best 23-5 record sitting at the top of the Western Conference. The Knicks will hope to get players back from Covid protocol soon as they fall to 12-16 with the loss after a hot start.
