To say Steph Curry was on fire Wednesday night would be an understatement.
He torched the Washington Wizards.
Merely days after Blake Griffin dropped 50 in an overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers, Curry goes off and drops 51 points… in only three quarters, in the 144-122 win.
The Wizards knew they were in for a long night after Curry drained 23 points and shot 72 percent in the first quarter alone.
To make this endeavor even more impressive, was with the shots he was draining. Curry knocked down 11 three’s, many of which were heavily contested or way beyond the three-point arc.
Check out some of these shots. Ridiculous.

Per usual, Curry has been a nightmare to defend beyond the three-point line. To put things in perspective, Curry has drained 33 shots from beyond the line so-far this season. Which is more than the totals of four teams (Thunder, Cavs, Clippers, Pelicans).
