Curry drills 10 3-pointers en route to his 51 points…
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry stole the show on Wednesday night as he scored 51 points in the win over the Dallas Mavericks.
Curry scored his season-high after making 10 3-pointers as the Warriors rallied from an early 22-point deficit to the Mavs at the Oracle Arena.
The All-Star guard and MVP candidate put on a dazzling display and helped Golden State improve to 39-8 as they made their biggest comeback of the season despite 24 points from Chandler Parsons and 21 points and 17 rebounds from Tyson Chandler.

The leaders in the East were also victorious as the Atlanta Hawks overcame the Washington Wizards with Jeff Teague scoring 26 points and dishing out eight assists.
John Wall responded with 24 points, seven rebounds and nine assists, but it wasn’t enough for the visitors to grab the win as Atlanta improve to 41-9 for the season.
It was a positive display from the Hawks who had seen their 19-game winning streak come to an end earlier this week, but Al Horford (21 points, 13 rebounds) helped them pull away in the fourth quarter.
Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls saw their struggles continue as they lost to the Houston Rockets despite the absence of Dwight Howard.
Jimmy Butler had 27 points and six rebounds for the visitors with Derrick Rose added 23 and Joakim Noah grabbed a season-high 19 rebounds in 32 minutes, but 27 points from James Harden and a 50-28 advantage in the paint ensured that the Rockets came out on top
Chicago have now lost three in a row for the first time all season and have lost four of their last five games.
In contrast, the San Antonio Spurs had a fully fit roster for the first time all season as they defeated the Orlando Magic, with Tim Duncan leading the charge with 26 points and 10 boards.
Tony Parker had 15 points, Kawhi Leonard added 18 while Marco Belinelli completed the entirely active roster after returning from injury and scored 11 points.
Meanwhile, Russell Westbrook scored 45 points to match his career best as the Oklahoma City Thunder overcame the absence of Kevin Durant to defeat the New Orleans Pelicans.
It was a significant win for the Thunder as they move above .500 again and close the gap on the Pelicans and Phoenix Suns for the last playoff spot in the West.
