Stephen Curry Scores 27 Points Playing on 28th Birthday
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry had 27 points, five rebounds and five assists on his 28th birthday, and the Golden State Warriors beat the New Orleans Pelicans 125-107 on Monday night for their record 49th straight regular-season home victory.
Draymond Green added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors (60-6), who are 31-0 at Oracle Arena this season. With 16 games to go, they remain one game ahead of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' pace in their record 72-win season.
Birthday songs, MVP chants, and a serenade and piece of cake from his toddler daughter, Riley, made it a great day for Curry — all after his fifth Western Conference Player of the Week award this season and second in two weeks.
He shot 4 for 9 from 3-point range and 10 of 16 overall.
Anthony Davis had 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Pelicans.
