How Steph dominated Bucks with heavy dose of pick-and-roll


Steph Curry was sensational in the Warriors' win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.

The two-time NBA MVP racked up 41 points in an extremely efficient manner -- 14-for-21 overall, 5-for-10 on 3s, 8-for-9 on free throws.

And his production came from a strategy we don't see from Golden State too often:

There are plenty of games where Steph puts up big numbers flying off screens and playing off the ball for long stretches.

But the matchup against Brook Lopez, Bobby Portis and the Bucks called for a lot of high ball screens and dribble hand-offs for the three-time NBA champion.

Curry is averaging 30.2 points, 5.9 assists, 5.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals over his last 41 games this season, while shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 41.6 percent from beyond the arc.

Does he feel like his game is has "peaked" both physically and mentally? Is everything at a different level for him right now?

"Absolutely," he told the media Monday night. "Just trying to keep pressing forward, keep trying to find ways to get better.

"That's the confidence and the mentality."
