Stephen Curry could have chosen from any one of the 54 points he poured in against the Knicks on Wednesday night.
The Warriors' point guard could have selected any of his 11 three-pointers, which had a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden buzzing and an ESPN audience glued to its screens.
He even could have picked one of his team-leading assists, team-leading rebounds or team-leading steals.
However, the sequence at the front of his mind following a game that verged on biblical proportions but ended in a 109-105 loss to the Knicks was one of his passes that got intercepted by Iman Shumpert.
After Curry twice had given the Warriors a one-point lead in the game's final five minutes, he grabbed a rebound off of a Shumpert miss and looked to cushion the lead for the first time in the fourth quarter. Instead, Curry got caught in the air and fired a pass almost right to Shumpert, and Carmelo Anthony made a three-pointer to give the Knicks a 105-103 lead with three minutes left.
The Warriors did not lead again.
"I was feeling like I had a good chance to get a three off or something, and I left my feet before I saw where I was going to pass it," Curry said still shaking his head in disbelief an hour after the game. "I threw it to Shumpert. That was just a play that I want back. ... We're still making boneheaded mistakes. On the road, you're not going to win games if you turn the ball over like that."
The Warriors (33-25) have dropped eight of their past 11 overall and 12 of the past 16 on the road.
They trail Denver by 3 1/2 games for the fifth spot in the Western Conference and lead seventh-place Utah by two games, eighth-place Houston by 2 1/2 games and the ninth-place Lakers by five games.
