A dynamic performance from an all-time great.

Steph Curry seemed to take the Golden State Warriors poor record, and the bickering on Twitter personally. On Sunday, with the Warriors desperately needing a victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, Curry scored, and scored, and scored again.

He finished the third quarter with 45 points, setting the single-game high in the NBA this year, with 12 minutes to go.

And not long after he checked in to the fourth quarter he surpassed his previous career high of 54 points.

And then he ended the game on a flurry, with two other-worldly three-pointers to finish with a career high 62 points.

62 points. 62 points. 62!!!

What an unreal performance.

It was also, in typical Steph fashion, highly efficient. He shot 18-31 from the field, 8-for-16 on threes, and 18-for-19 from the free throw line.

And he needed just 36 minutes.

In shocking news, Steph Curry is still really good. Perhaps even better than we remembered.
