Steph Curry exploded for an epic night from beyond the arch.
Curry scored 51 points and finishing with 11 3-pointers in only three-quarters of the Golden State Warriors’ 144-122 win over the Washington Wizards.
“The last 3 in the first quarter was probably the funniest thing I’ve experienced on the court. Two guys on our team are yelling from the time I was at the free throw line: ‘Don’t pass it! Don’t pass it! You better shoot it!’ All that type of stuff,” Curry said. “That’s going through my head while I’m dribbling down. That’s kind of all the motivation you need just to launch it. Thankfully it went in.”

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr couldn’t be upset watching Curry attempts from deep : “You got a guy taking 40-footers and you’re on the sideline going, ‘Yeah, that’s a good shot,’ ” Kerr said.
