Opening with a red-hot 24 point performance in the first quarter featuring five triples, Curry carried the Warriors to a blowout win over the Thunder, 136-97. The seven-time All-Star guard finished with a game-high 49 points on 14-of-26 shooting from the field with five rebounds, two assists and a steal in only 29 minutes.

Curry caught fire from beyond the arc, torching the Thunder for 11 3-pointers on 21 attempts from deep. The two-time Most Valuable Player has now finished seven games with 10 or more made 3-pointers in a single game.
