#NBALiveTogether: Steph Curry walks into Madison Square Garden to deliver 54-point shooting clinic

Madison Square Garden is tied to some of the most memorable individual performances in NBA history.

In February 2013, a 25-year-old Steph Curry added his name to the list.

The dynamic guard poured in 54 points in an incredible shooting display that had the Garden crowd buzzing.

Watch the game:

"There was a lot of energy in the arena. When I made a couple shots you could hear the crowd a little bit. It was electric, and I was kind of running off adrenaline down the stretch," Curry said postgame.

Curry finished 18-for-28 from the field, remarkably playing 48 minutes on the night, burying 11 of his 13 tries from beyond the arc.

The Golden State Warriors would lose to the New York Knicks, 109-105, with Carmelo Anthony leading the Knicks with 35 points.

J.R Smith added 26 points off the bench for the Knicks.

The 54-point explosion from Curry came two seasons before the Warriors would begin a championship dynasty in which he would become a back-to-back MVP winner.
