Stephen Curry turned on the heat at the Chase Center on Friday night, as he helped the Golden State Warriors to a 106-101 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. After an uncharacteristically slow start to his season with the defending champions, Curry seems to have finally found his mojo back with back-to-back 40-point performances to get their title defense back on the right track.

Curry took cruise control of a pivotal night for the Warriors as he racked up 40 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists for the Warriors against the Cavaliers on Friday night. Curry had the Chase Center on its feet with a sizzling solo display, becoming the first player in NBA history to record back-to-back games of 40+ points, a field goal percentage of 65%+, and a 5+ 3pt FGM.

It was certainly one of the most remarkable performances of a decorated career for the Warriors superstar, and the absolute peak of the performance came deep into the fourth quarter. The Cavs were 95-87 up with 4:38 left on the clock before Curry turned the game on its head, sinking two three-pointers, a two-pointer, and two free throws to ice the game for the Warriors.

Not just that, Curry also came up with a clutch three pointers to help the Warriors extend their lead once they had it – one that left his former teammate Kevin Durant in awe as well.

Durant was watching the Warriors take on the Cavaliers in an important night, and made his awe known when Curry came up with his incredible display. Tweeting on his official account, KD kept it short and simple when he wrote “My goodness, Stephen” to describe the performance.

Durant can testify to a lot more of Curry’s clutch displays while sharing the court with him, but even he was left surprised by the out-of-the-world display that Curry had just put on.
