WATCH: Steph Curry hits half-court buzzer-beater on his way to 51 points

Stephen Curry had himself a night Thursday. Well, pretty much every night this season, Steph Curry has had a night. But Thursday he set a record for most consecutive games with a made 3-pointer, he scored 51 points in the Warriors' 130-114 victory over the Orlando Magic, and he knocked down this third-quarter buzzer beater from half-court.

And then he laughed about it, because that's pretty much all there is left to do at his play at this point. 

Curry shot 20 of 27, 10 of 15 from 3-point range, and finished just two 3s short of the record for most in one game (12). He had seven rebounds and eight assists to go with the 51, and it was the most points scored by a player with only one free throw

The MVP race is over, you can go ahead and put his name on it, if you haven't already. The Warriors' magic number to clinch a playoff spot is two. And February isn't over.
