stephen-curry--the-nbas-mvp--has-the-biggest-bargain-contract-in-the-leagueThe records tumbled on a special night in the NBA with seven games taking place. The talk of the town will be back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry as he broke the NBA record for most made 3-pointers in a game.

Record-breaking Steph is back

The Warriors almost threw it away against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night, throwing away a 20-point lead only for Stephen Curry to come to the rescue in the only way he knows how. Scoring 3-pointers. He dropped a record-breaking 13 shots from 3-point land as the Warriors won the game 116-106. Curry ended the game with a massive 46 points. Kevin Durant scored 22 and Klay Thompson ended with 24 points.

The Pelicans will look at this as an opportunity lost as they clawed back a 20-point deficit to lead in the third quarter, only to watch Curry light up Oracle Arena. Anthony Davis was their main man as he claimed a double-double 33 points, 13 rebounds. E’Twaun Moore scored 15 points and Tim Frazier finished with 13.

Harden leads from the front

The Houston Rockets beat the Washington Wizards 114-106 with James Harden impressing again as he scored points and shared the ball. Harden finished the game with 32 points and 15 assists.

Swiss centre Clint Capela, whose parents hail from Africa, scored 14 points and grabbed six rebounds and blocked four shots. Ryan Anderson scored 23 points.
