Is that rain? Curry dumps 50 on Hawks
Yet another unforgettable masterpiece from Stephen Curry as Warriors overcome 15-point deficit

When Stephen Curry gets going, it is a sight to behold. On a night like this, you’re going to need a real special effort to defeat the Golden State Warriors, and the Atlanta Hawks ended up falling well short.
Curry was 9 of 19 from deep, and hit all 13 free throws on his way to 50 points on 28 field goal attempts (14 of 28). It will go down as one of his highest scoring games, but for everyone who watched it, this was a unique treat.
At the half, it was anyone’s game. The Hawks high-low game between Trae Young had 21 to Curry’s 24 points at the break; and John Collins was somehow unstoppable, not missing a single shot as he collected 18 points in the first half.
But Curry was just too damn much for them.
It was a classic Warriors flurry in the 3rd quarter. A dominant display on both ends that ended up with Golden State nearly doubling up the Hawks: 40-21.
And then, in a cool twist, coach Steve Kerr decided to leave Curry in for the 4th, paving the way for an old school haymaker performance.
The Warriors are now 9-1.
We will resume our normal programming tomorrow, but for now, it’s party time!
