Steve Kerr reflected on the Golden State Warriors' display against the Memphis Grizzlies as "about as good as it gets" after Stephen Curry starred in a 113-104 win.
Warriors fans chanted "MVP" to Curry as he scored 46 points – including eight three-pointers – in an inspired performance at Chase Center on Thursday.
The win for Golden State took their NBA-best record at home this season to 16-2 and left them on 26-6.
Warriors head coach Kerr was thrilled with the way his side went about seeing off the 19-14 Grizzlies and lavished praise on Curry.
"That's about as good as it gets against a very physical defense with great size," Warriors head coach Kerr said.
"Over the last 10-12 games, Memphis had the best defensive rating in the league. For Steph to go out and get 46, he showed every bit of his talent tonight. This was his most efficient game in a couple weeks, for sure."
Curry suffered a twisted ankle in the fourth quarter, but revealed he was fine after the game.
The two-time MVP felt it was a hugely important win in the Warriors' season.
He said: "Definitely wanted this one. Definitely felt like it was one [we] can't let slip by because of the history but also because knowing what it's going to take to win a game like this.
"You carry that chip on your shoulder and understand this is our home court."
