Stephen Curry puts on show in CharlottePosted by Inside Hoops
Unlike his previous two trips to Charlotte, Stephen Curry said he didn’t have any butterflies as he stepped on the court Monday night.
Call it veteran experience - or maybe it’s just supreme confidence given the way he’s playing right now.
Curry put on quite a show for his hometown fans, finishing with 27 points, seven assists and seven rebounds to lead the surging Golden State Warriors to a 104-96 win over the struggling Charlotte Bobcats.
Curry, who grew up in Charlotte and made a name for himself when led nearby Davidson College to the brink of the Final Four in 2008, shot 10 of 22 from the field and hit four 3-pointers.
It was his eighth straight 20-point game, a career best, and he pushed his season scoring average to 20.0 per game…
David Lee continued his torrid pace with 25 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors (14-7), who have won seven of their past eight games and improved to 4-0 on their current seven-game Eastern trip…
Carl Landry added 16 points and Jarrett Jack had 12 points and six assists for Golden State.
Kemba Walker scored 24 points and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 17 to lead the Bobcats, who’ve dropped eight straight after starting the season 7-5.
