Stephen Curry scored a game-high 34 points on 13-of-27 shooting vs. the Raptors, including four 3-pointers, but it wasn't enough to avoid Golden State's second loss in the past three games.
Curry's six turnovers took the shine off his seven assists, but it's hard to blame a guy who's doing everything possible to keep his team afloat. He ranks third in the NBA in assists per game (8.9) and he easily leads the league in 3-pointers per game (3.4). Just as important is the fact that he's missed only three games this season. If you toss out turnovers (3.9 per game) he's been the No. 2 fantasy player on a cumulative basis, trailing only Kevin Durant.

Stephen Curry hit just 2-of-10 shots for five points, three rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's ugly loss to the Bulls.
The good news is he's not hurt and he credited the defense of Kirk Hinrich for shutting him down, which is surprising. He's fine and this was just an off night. Look for him to bounce back against the banged up Knicks on Friday. Curry wasn't alone in this one, as not a single Dub's starter scored in double digits.
