April 5 (UPI) -- Stephen Curry out-skilled the Minnesota Timberwolves, while Carmelo Anthony crossed over the Chicago Bulls in Tuesday NBA action.

The two All-Star staples dominated defenders as Anthony's New York Knicks beat the Bulls 100-91. Curry's Golden State Warriors trounced the Timberwolves 121-107.

Perhaps the best highlight of Curry's night came in the third quarter. He dribbled the length of the court and stepped just inside the 3-point line before throwing a behind-the-back no-look pass with his left hand. The pinpoint dish landed in the arms of a cutting Andre Iguodala, who finished the play with a reverse layup.

Curry himself couldn't believe the play, as he laughed it off while teething at his mouthpiece. The two-time NBA MVP had 19 points, nine assists, three steals, and two blocks in the 14-point win. Klay Thompson netted 41 points to lead #DubNation.

Curry, known for his sweet shooting stroke and commitment to pregame ball-handling drills, also put on a show Sunday against the Washington Wizards. In that contest, the "Baby-Faced Assassin" used a flurry of fake-outs to embarrass Wizards center Marcin Gortat.

Anthony pulled off his best And1 mixtape tour impression against an overmatched Nikola Mirotic. The Knicks were beating the Bulls 64-46 when Anthony had the ball with seconds remaining on the shot clock. He drove in on Mirotic, before backing off, causing the big man to stumble. Anthony then pulled up from several feet beyond the 3-point line and doused the net at Madison Square Garden from downtown. The 10-time All-Star put in a team-high 23 points and had seven rebounds in the win. The Knicks are 2-2 in its last four games, but are still 18 games below .500.
