Highlights | Photo Gallery | Box Score | Interviews

Stephen Curry sure knows how to celebrate a birthday. The birthday boy celebrated the big 2-7 by putting together a personal highlight reel over the final two minutes of the second quarter and the Warriors cruised to a 125-94 win over the Knicks on Saturday night.

The party started when Curry knocked down back-to-back 3-pointers to cap a 14-1 run late in the second quarter. A few moments later, he inhaled a defensive rebound and threw a length-of-the-court pass to a streaking Draymond Green, who finished the 90-foot, three-second possession with a layup. The All-Star guard was then on the receiving end of a touchdown pass, this one coming from Andrew Bogut, and Curry finished the possession by netting a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from six feet behind the line.

Curry finished the game with 25 points and 11 assists for his 11th 20-and-10 game (points/assists) of the season. While Curry definitely had it going in just 27 minutes of action, he wasn’t the only Splash Brother with the hot hand.

Klay Thompson matched Curry three for three, stroke for stroke, as both players shot 6-for-10 from 3-point range. Thompson did much of his damage in the third quarter, scoring 14 of his game-high 27 points in the period. Justin Holiday added 13 points, Green chipped in with 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists and David Lee tallied 10 points on 5-for-6 shooting.

After four lead changes and six ties in the first quarter, the Warriors dominated New York 85-46 over the second and third quarters. In fact, the Dubs’ 47-point second quarter, the team’s highest scoring period since 1991, was one more than the Knicks’ total over the second and third quarters combined.



Playing the back end of a back-to-back, the reserves were responsible for starting this wildly one-sided run. Justin Holiday, coming off a career-high 23 points in Friday’s loss to the Nuggets, had eight points during a 17-4 run early in the second period. The Warriors took the lead for good during that stretch, and they went on to shoot 50 percent from the floor and 55.9 percent (19-for-34) on 3-pointers.

Now 52-13 on the season and 29-2 at home, the Warriors will be back in action on Monday night when they celebrate Nocehes Ene-Be-A with a game against the Lakers.
