Stephen Curry is the deadliest shooter in the NBA. He can shoot from almost anywhere on the court and still score. Possessing a variety of skills such as excellent ball handling and spectacular passing, he is most famous for his outstanding shooting abilities.
A few games back, Steph Curry became the oldest player in NBA history to average at least 30.0 points through his first 10 games of a season, breaking the record previously held by himself. In the recent game against the Houston Rockets, Curry broke yet another record.
Which Warriors record did Stephen Curry break?
Stephen Curry not only helped the Dubs secure a desperately needed victory, but he also added another noteworthy accomplishment to his already impressive résumé. In terms of minutes played while a member of the Warriors, the most lethal 3-point shooter in the NBA eclipsed Nate Thurmond.
At 30,735 minutes, Curry and Thurmond are tied. In a matter of seconds, the dynamic point guard defeated the esteemed “Chairman of the Boards.” Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are two of the current Warriors’ top ten. Green comes in eighth, Thompson sixth.
“Chef Curry” leads the franchise in a number of additional categories. In terms of number of games played, field goal attempts, field goals made, three-point field goals attempted, made, assists, and steals, he leads all other players.
In terms of points, offensive win shares, win shares, free throw percentage, and value over replacement, Curry leads the Warriors as well. However, some of the team’s records are immune to Curry’s assault. Wilt Chamberlain’s 41.5 ppg and 25.1 rpg are far from the point.
Stephen Curry’s dominant display ends Warriors losing streak
The Golden State Warriors ended a six-game losing streak thanks to a spectacular performance by Steph Curry against the Houston Rockets. After playing 35 minutes, the two-time MVP scored 32 points on 8–14 shooting, including 5–9 from beyond the arc.
Curry increased his total with one assist and five rebounds. Curry’s final moments on the court were crucial for the Warriors to hold off the youthful but skilled Rockets. Curry is currently in his 15th season of play at the age of 35. Regretfully for the Golden State Warriors’ rivals, he appears to be improving with age.
Curry hit at least four triples in his first 13 games of the season, thanks to his 5-9 deep shooting clip. He had four 3-pointers in three games and five 3-pointers in another four games. In addition, the NBA’s all-time leading 3-point shooter had two games with six triples. Amazingly, he has hit seven 3-pointers four times during the said stretch.
