Golden State guard Stephen Curry scored a NBA season-high 54 points but it wasn't enough as the New York Knicks prevailed 109-105 against the Warriors at Madison Square Garden.

Curry's career-best mark saw him land 18 of 28 shots from the field, 11 of 13 from the three-point arc and all seven free throw attempts.

Curry also added six rebounds and seven assists on a hot night but the Warriors dropped to 33-25 as Carmelo Anthony notched up 35 points to move the Knicks to 34-20.

The Warriors were without the suspended David Lee leaving Carl Landry as the next best scorer with just 15 points.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
