Stat Line Of The Night — 2/9/12 — Stephen Curry
The Golden State Warriors haven’t been able to find any success when playing in Denver as of late, as they entered last night’s contest having lost in each of their last six trips to the Pepsi Center. Stephen Curry was on a mission to make sure that streak didn’t reach seven in a row.
After sitting out for a few weeks in January with an injury, Curry has struggled to regain his consistent scoring touch, as he had surpassed the 20-point mark only twice in his last eight games. But if last night was any indication, he may have finally found his stroke again as he connected on 13 of his 17 field-goal attempts and six of his nine three-point attempts during a 36 point, 7 rebound, 7 assist performance. Those numbers helped the Warriors snap their losing streak in Denver, as they escaped with the 109-101 victory and Curry escapes with “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, February 9, 2012.
