Before the multiple champions, the multiple MVP's and the multiple All-Star selections, Stephen Curry first announced himself on the NBA stage with this performance under the brightest lights of them all at the Madison Square Garden.

On this date, in 2013, Stephen Curry erupted for a career-high 54 points against the New York Knicks.

As Curry would go on to do multiple times in his career, he dropped the points tally efficiently.

On that night, where the Golden State Warriors were on the second night of a back-to-back, Curry made 18 of his 28 (64.3%) field goal attempts and shot a then career-high 11 3-pointers on 13 attempts (84.6).

He also recorded 7 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals as he played all 48 minutes of the game.

Unfortunately, despite Curry's superheroic performance, the shorthanded Warriors lost to the Knicks by the slim margin of 4 points.

It was the trio of Carmelo Anthony (35 points, 8 assists), J.R. Smith (26 points, 52.6% shooting) and Tyson Chandler (16 points, 28 rebounds) that led the Knicks to the win with their performances.
