    NBA Preview from The Sports Network



    Friday, March 1st (All times Eastern)

    Golden State Warriors (33-25) at Boston Celtics (30-27), 7:30 p.m.

    (Sports Network) - It's been two days since Steph Curry's deluge of points in the Big Apple and his right hand is probably still at a rolling boil.

    Although it was a losing cause for the Golden State Warriors, Curry will try to shoot his team past the Boston Celtics Friday night at TD Garden in the continuation of a five-game road trip.

    Curry shot the lights out of Madison Square Garden, prompting Knicks star Carmelo Anthony to say there's nothing you can do when a player gets that hot. Anthony even added that trying to match Curry shot-for-shot is a lost cause.

    In the 109-105 setback at New York, Curry set new career-highs in points (54), field goals made (18) and 3-pointers made (11, franchise record). He became the first player in league history to score 50 or more points and hit 10-plus from beyond the arc. The 54 points were the most since Purvis Short had 59 back in 1984. Curry is first in the NBA in 3-pointers made and second in field goal percentage from downtown.

    "I knew I was knocking down a lot of shots, so I knew it was a good night," Curry said. "I was trying not to look at the scoreboard."

    The former Davidson star is one of only three players averaging at least 21 points, six assists and four rebounds (LeBron James, Russell Westbrook).

    Carl Landry and Jarrett Jack had 15 and 14 points, respectively, for the Warriors, who have lost two straight since a three-game winning streak and eight of the last 11 games. The Warriors played without All-Star center David Lee after he was suspended one game for getting into a shoving match with Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert on Tuesday. Hibbert also was slapped with a one-game suspension.

    Curry and Klay Thompson were fined $35,000 by the league for their involvement in the melee with the Pacers.

    Golden State, which leads the NBA in 3-point percentage at .398, will close out the trip Saturday at Philadelphia and is 15-18 as the guest.

    Boston is back at home briefly following an unsuccessful western road trip (2-3) and is coming off Monday's 110-107 overtime triumph at Utah.

    Paul Pierce scored seven of his game high-tying 26 points during overtime and Kevin Garnett added 13 points and 10 rebounds. Avery Bradley recorded a season-high 18 points for the Celtics, who won for the 10th time in 14 tries.

    "We knew this was probably going to be the toughest game for us physically and mentally, talking about a long trip, coming in to one of the toughest places to play," said Pierce, who went on his own 7-0 run for a 106-101 lead in OT. "We felt we could kind of salvage this trip with a win here. So guys did a good job of just being mentally tough, digging in and doing what we to do to get the win."

    The Celtics, who were outscored by a 25-17 margin in the fourth quarter and played their fifth game in seven nights, registered a 13-10 advantage in the extra period.

    After hosting the Warriors in Beantown, the Celtics will hit the road again for two straight and four of five games. In milestone news, Garnett is six rebounds shy of passing Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon (13,748) for 11th place on the all-time list.

    Boston dropped a 101-83 decision at Golden State on Dec. 29 this season, but has won four of the past six meetings between the teams. The Warriors have lost four in a row, seven of eight and 11 of the last 14 at the Celtics.
