Steph Curry delivered a dazzling performance as the Golden State Warriors scored a 114-91 road victory at the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday.

Curry finished with 32 points in the win, with six Warriors teammates ending up in double digits. Rudy Gay led the Spurs scorers with 17 points off the bench.

But it was Curry who hogged the limelight after another gem of a display in what is rapidly becoming an MVP-calibre season for the Warriors talisman.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr believes Curry is playing better than ever.

“That’s part of Steph’s brilliance — he just constantly amazes you to the point where you almost take it for granted,” Kerr said.

“This is the best I’ve ever seen him from a confidence and a strength standpoint. And that’s saying something for a two-time MVP. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him look better.”

Curry was 4 for 10 on 3-pointers and 11 for 20 overall. His night included switching hands after contact for an improbable, behind-the-back flip shot late in the first quarter that he made despite being fouled.

Trey Lyles had 15 and Keldon Johnson and Patty Mills had 13 apiece for San Antonio.

It was the Spurs’ final home game before embarking on their annual nearly month-long road trip while the city’s Stock Show & Rodeo is held at the AT&T Center.
