This just in: Steph Curry is very good at basketball and making three-pointers. The two-time NBA MVP provided an excellent reminder of that on Sunday night, when he scored 48 points and made 11 threes to lead the Warriors to a 119-114 victory over the Mavericks in Dallas.

What made the night special — and what makes him so special in general — was just how efficient Curry was on the night. He was 17-of-32 from the field, 11-of-19 on threes, 3-of-3 at the free-throw line, pulled down six rebounds, dished out five assists with no turnovers, and even had two blocks.
And three-pointer No. 11 was this long triple to break a 114-114 tie with 42.2 seconds left:

The Warriors (29-14) have a four-game winning streak going and are tied with the Denver Nuggets (28-13) for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. And the Warriors and Nuggets meet in Denver for Golden State’s next game on Tuesday night. That will be a fun one, and you can be sure Curry will look to put on another show.
