Curry leads Warriors win with 46 points

Stephen Curry scored 46 points as the Golden State Warriors earned a hard-fought 113-104 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA.

It is the third time this season he has scored more than 45 points in a game.

Curry, the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2015 and 2016, scored eight three-pointers, with Gary Payton Jr adding four as part of his 22 points for the Warriors.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr described it as a “vintage Steph” performance. The win keeps the Warriors just behind the Phoenix Suns for the best record in the NBA.

Ja Morant scored 21 points for Memphis, who tied the score at 102-102 in the final quarter to set up a tense finish. But baskets from Juan Tosco-Anderson, Payton Jr and Curry saw the Warriors pull away and secure the win.

Elsewhere, Devin Booker scored 30 points for the Phoenix Suns as they beat Oklahoma City Thunder 113-101 in Phoenix.

The Suns trailed by three at halftime, but took control in the third and fourth quarter to get the victory.
