Steph Curry explodes for 50 points but Golden State Warriors still beaten 130-119 by Phoenix Suns

For the 11th time in his NBA career, Steph Curry scored 50 points, but the struggling Golden State Warriors were defeated 130-119 by the Phoenix Suns despite his efforts.

In their quest to capture their fifth championship since 2015, the Warriors are now 6-9 on the year and have lost all eight of their road games.

According to ESPN, this is the Warriors' longest road losing streak at the start of a season since 1989/90 and the longest road losing streak by a defending champion since the Chicago Bulls in the 1998/99 campaign.

Steve Kerr, the head coach of the Warriors, told reporters after the game on Wednesday, "We're never going to panic, there's no purpose in panicking.

"What we need to do is persevere and locate it. However, in order to find it, we must convince everyone to join in and agree that the only concern that matters is winning.

He said, "I observed a lot of dangling heads tonight." "I believe we are being self-pitying,"

Curry had a historic night, shooting 17 of 28 from the field, 7 of 11 from beyond the arc, while also pulling down nine rebounds and dishing out six assists.

He then tied Allen Iverson for the ninth-most 50+ point games in NBA history, passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the process.

Andrew Wiggins scored 14 points and Klay Thompson scored 19, but the Suns' offence was much more evenly distributed, with all five of their starters scoring in double figures.
