Steph Curry scored 41 points in the Golden State Warriors’ 123-104 win over the New Orleans Pelicans.
Curry has scored 40 points or more in nine games this season.
“Teams are terrified of him — and everywhere he runs on the floor — with or without the ball, teams are terrified. That type of gravity, he pulls a lot of weight … I wouldn’t want to see a team with Steph Curry on it. We all know what he’s capable of,” said Draymond Green of Curry.
Curry, who averaged 37.3 points in April, said this current run is the high point of his career.
“I haven’t done anything like this stretch in my career, but the work that goes into it — there’s no surprise there, so it’s just a matter of staying in the moment, enjoying what I get to do. Having the utmost confidence in what I can do out on the floor.
“And just enjoying the challenge because I know I got to play well for us to be who we want to be this year, and defenses are going to throw everything at me, and I got to be able to work with everybody out there on the floor to create shots and create offense and I’m enjoying it,” said Curry.
The Warriors moved a half-game ahead of the Grizzlies for the eighth seed in the Western Conference following the win.
