VIDEO: Stephen Curry goes off against Puerto Rico
Team USA guard Stephen Curry erupted for 20 points in 18 minutes on Friday.
Stephen Curry was the star of the show on Friday. Against Puerto Rico in an exhibition game, he put up 20 points in just 18 minutes, making six of his seven field goal attempts. He also dished four assists, including a no-look, behind-the-back, perfectly placed bounce pass to James Harden for a dunk in transition.
Curry's one of the biggest names on this iteration of Team USA, and it looks like he has the starting shooting guard spot locked down for the FIBA World Cup. While Anthony Davis is the guy we keep mentioning for a breakout performance in Spain, Curry's probably the team's deadliest weapon. It'd be fun if he turned into the talk of the tournament.
