Stephen Curry Found a 2nd Home at Madison Square Garden Silencing Knicks Fans

Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry is on the verge of becoming the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-pointers. Curry holds the opportunity to set the prestigious mark on Tuesday night against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Beyond the chance to make history, the two-time league MVP enjoys another element about playing at MSG.

Stephen Curry dominates the Knicks

Curry has unsurprisingly found plenty of offensive success against New York.

In 20 career games, he’s averaging 25.2 points on 48.2% from 3-point range. The Warriors star guard has scored more than 20 points all but five times, with seven performances topping north of 30 points.

He’s knocked down at least five 3-pointers 12 times while shooting above 50% from the field on seven occasions. It’s topped by his then-career-high 54-points behind 11 three-pointers in February 2013 that put him on the map as one of the game’s best talents.

Curry has performed at his best when the lights are the brightest, which brings him a pure joy to accomplish one feat whenever he plays the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Stephen Curry found a 2nd home at Madison Square Garden silencing Knicks fans

Over the years, many players have voiced a strong affinity for playing at Madison Square Garden.

Stephen Curry is among those that hold that sentiment, as he loves to play under the spotlight at the iconic sports arena. It’s grown to the point where he thoroughly enjoys the feeling of silencing the prominently Knicks fans crowd.

“There were some fans heckling, which was awesome,” Curry said after a win over the Knicks in February 2021 via Heavy.com. “And me and Draymond were talking about, there’s no better feeling…I don’t care if it’s 19,000 or 2,500 or whatever it is – you love silencing a road crowd.”

Curry’s individual scoring dominance and team success against the Knicks further sparks that strong emotion. It’s always a tremendous feeling for a player to silence the crowd at an opposing arena, and the two-time league MVP certainly falls into that realm.

He’s averaging 25.9 points in 10 career games at Madison Square Garden while shooting 51.1% from beyond the arc. Although he’s only stated that he believed the Knicks drafted him in the 2009 NBA Draft, it must add extra motivation to stick to the team that passed on taking him.

All the ingredients are there for Curry to step up his game every time he steps onto the floor at MSG.

Stephen Curry, Knicks fans ready to embrace the historic moment

Curry heads into Tuesday’s game with the unique opportunity to make NBA history to become the league’s all-time leader in 3-pointers made.

The 33-year-old sits two 3-pointers away from surpassing Hall of Famer Ray Allen. After Monday’s win over the Indiana Pacers, Curry voiced that he’s embracing the moment and letting the chips fall as they may.

“There’s a narrative for pretty much everywhere on this road trip that you could kind of key in on,” Curry said via NBA.com. “Reggie [Miller’s] presence and legacy here, playing against my brother [Seth] in Philly, in the [Madison Square] Garden tomorrow, the court that Ray Allen broke Reggie’s record in Boston. So, again, it will happen when it happens.”

Although Knicks fans would love to see their team beat the Warriors, there’s no question the arena crowd will graciously honor the star guard if he sets the all-time mark on Tuesday night. All that sets the stage for Curry to have another unforgettable moment at MSG.
