Curry finished 10-of-16 from beyond the arc and 16-of-26 overall. He scored 26 of his 51 in the 3rd quarter, the 2nd-highest quarter this season behind his teammate Klay Thompson's 37-point 3rd quarter against the Sacramento Kings. After nailing his 10th three with under a minute left, Curry was surrounded by "MVP" chants from the 19,596 in attendance.
The Mavs got off to a 40-18 lead in the 1st quarter, but their offense went silent from the 2nd quarter-on. Chandler Parson led with 24 points for Dallas, while Tyson Chandler had a double-double of 21 points and 17 rebounds. Dallas was played without star point guard Rajon Rondo, who remains out with orbital and nasal fractures.
Curry came just shy of his career-high 54 points, which came on February 27th, 2013 against the New York Knicks on the road, which resulted in a 109-105 loss. Curry scored 10 in the 4th quarter, after finishing 3 quarters with 41 points.
Golden State as a team finished 19-of-38 from 3-point range, while the Mavs finished 10-of-30.
Thompson finished with 18 points for the NBA's best team, while Marreese Speights and Leandro Barbosa added 14 each off the bench. The Warriors have now won 3 straight, and have a stretch of 10 of 11 on the road, not returning home until the end of the month.
The Mavericks' 3-game winning streak came to an end, as they fell to 33-18 on the season. Dallas will visit the Sacramento Kings tonight. Golden State holds the NBA's best record at 39-8, and will go toe-to-toe with the east-leading Atlanta Hawks on Friday night.
