That Steph Curry wasn't feeling the ill effects of an ankle injury that sidelined him for two weeks is an understatement. In fact, in his first game back in nearly a month, it was the Memphis Grizzlies, not Curry, who was in a lot of pain.

Curry's statline had a lot to do with that — 38 points on 13-of-17 shooting from the floor and 10 of 13 from long distance in 26 minutes. The result was a 141-128 victory for the Golden State Warriors.

"When I woke up this morning, I knew I was going to play basketball," Curry said. "That's a great feeling to have."

According to, that is the ninth time Curry has drilled 10 or more 3-pointers in a game. He owns the single-game record with 13, a feat he accomplished in November 2016.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said the 2-time MVP is one of those players who can get going in a hurry.

"Most guys you would say when they come back, maybe they'll struggle a little bit to find their rhythm, but you don't say that about Steph," Kerr said, "because all it takes is one and he can be feeling it."
