Stephen Curry tallies 14-16-13 triple-double against Suns
Curry goes off against Suns
Curry messed around and got his third career triple double Friday night -- 14 points, 16 assists, 13 rebounds.
Curry became the first Warrior since Baron Davis ('07-08) to record multiple triple-doubles in a season, and the second player in the league to do so this year (Pacers' Lance Stephenson has three). Curry is the seventh player in Warriors history to record at least three career triple-doubles.
Setting team history
Curry became the first Warrior to collect 16 assists/13 rebounds in a game since Guy Rodgers had 17 assists/20 rebounds on Oct. 26, 1962 -- in the team's second game in the Bay Area.
Owning the game
Eric Bledsoe scored a team-high 24 points and added eight rebounds and eight assists in the Suns' Dec. 15 win over the Warriors. He was limited to seven points with no rebounds or assists and a minus-13 rating in just 19 minutes on Friday.
Drawing the parallel
The last player to record 16 assists and 13 rebounds in a Warriors game? Mark Jackson, playing for the Clippers against Golden State in 1994.
Giving Jeff Hornacek, Ish Smith fits
Starters Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic couldn't contain Curry, as former Warriors guard Ish Smith was called on. Curry set a career high in rebounds (13) and tied his career high in assists (15) with more than two minutes remaining in the third quarter.
Curry's 16 assists are the most by a Warrior since Tim Hardaway's 19 against the Nuggets on Jan. 8, 1990. His 13 rebounds are the most by a Warriors guard since Mookie Blaylock grabbed 13 on March 24, 2001.
