Amazing game to watch. It was surprising when he missed. He didn't force that much either. Took his shots quickly and the Knicks didn't force the ball to him most of the game either. Other than that heat check at the end of the 1st and a couple of other shots, he pretty much got his shots in the flow of the offense. Was making the open shots and the tough shots. 18/26 shooting, 7 threes and only 8 free throw attempts to get 50.

He was taking(and making) a lot of 3s right after the trade in '11 as well when D'Antoni was the coach, though he didn't shoot nearly as many last season. He may have worked on his 3 point shooting more because of Chandler and Amare. It's a good thing he did because he's had trouble finishing at the rim pretty much all season. I didn't expect 3 point shooting to become such a big part of his game either, though. Especially after D'Antoni was gone.
Maybe that's what the difference was I couldn't put my finger on between his game and Curry's. MSG. That would have be insane at the garden.
Could be that he really slowed up in the final quarter because the Knicks were already taking advantage and had a decent lead. Where as Curry was playing in a tight game and really poured it on when his team needed it.
If the Knicks won 34 games in a row people would still be saying first round exit. They're just jealous little fools who wish their team played in such a big market as NY is or had some of the big name players that this franchise owns.
At some point you just gotta give it to them even if you are a hater/troll.
