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.

What do you make of LeBron James' decision to return to Cleveland?

He should have stuck with the Miami Heat

Who cares? I'm all about the Breakers

Cavs fans will never forgive him for leaving them the first time
