It’s feeling Madison Square Garden all over again.
Warriors point guard Stephen Curry had 20 points in the first nine minutes Friday, impressing the sellout crowd at Staples Center.
He’s made 8 of his first 10 shots, including four 3-pointers, to carry the Warriors to an early lead. Golden State built a 28-24 lead. When the first quarter ended, Curry had 22 points on 9 of 13 shooting with two assists. Golden State led 32-26. That’s one point off the record for most points in a quarter by an opponent.
Back on Feb. 27, Curry scored a career-high 54 points at New York. That game, Curry had just four points at the end of the first quarter. But he scored 50 over the final three periods, knocking down 11 straight 3-pointers.
