Warriors' Stephen Curry has best game as a pro on Monday

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

Stephen Curry stepped up in the clutch to guide his team to a win over the Mavericks.

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Dallas Mavericks, 105-101, in overtime on Monday night, and Stephen Curry stole the show down the stretch. The guard took over in the final minutes and overtime to lead the Warriors to the win, and that has at least writer believing it was his best performance yet.

Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area believes that last night was Curry's finest as a pro, and says it isn't all about the final stat line:

Curry’s had big games before, but he’s never had one like this – where he took over a game late and brought home a win for the Warriors.

In short, it was the best game of Curry’s NBA career. How could it not be?

Of the Warriors’ 15 overtime points, Curry had a hand in 13 of them. He had six points and three assists in overtime, including a spoon-feed to David Lee with 31 seconds left, which put the Warriors up two and was the game’s biggest basket.

Curry finished with 31 points on 9 of 21 shooting, to go along with nine assists and six rebounds. He also made all 10 of his free throw attempts.

The win put the Warriors over the .500 mark at 6-5. Curry's performance helped the team overcome a difficult night from starting shooting guard Klay Thompson, who was just 2 of 14 from the field for seven points.

Golden State will hope for more of the same from Curry when they host the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.
