Stephen Curry’s record breaking performances/month

Instead of outlining just one of the records Steph Curry has broken this season, we are going to go through some of the big-time records Curry has set/broken this year in what has been a historic season for the 33-year-old future Hall-of-Famer. 

One of Curry’s biggest achievements of his career took place this season, as he passed Wilt Chamberlain for the Most Points Scored in Warriors History! Chamberlain’s previous record was 17,783 points and that record had been held by the great Wilt Chamberlain since 1965, but Curry has once again put his name in Warriors’ record books, solidifying himself as the greatest player to ever play for the Warriors franchise. 

Another one of Steph’s achievements this year was that he made over 200 three-pointers for the 8th time in his career, which broke a tie with him, Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson at 7 seasons! Curry has solidified himself as the greatest shooter to ever play in the NBA, but after setting this new record in April, he went on to have one of the most historic months in NBA history.

The month of April was one of the single-best performances during a month in NBA history for Steph Curry and he set a ton of records and milestones along the way. In the month of April, Curry made a total of 96 three-pointers, breaking James Harden’s record of 82 threes for the Most Made Three-Point Shots in a Single Month.

In addition, Curry recorded his 6th game this season with 10+ made threes in a game. No other player in NBA history has more than 5 games in their entire career with 10+ threes in a game! Curry also recorded five 40+ point games during the month of April, passing the late, great Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan for the most 40-point games in a month by a player age-33 or older!

Finally, during the month of April, Curry recorded 30+ points in 11 consecutive games, which also passed Kobe Bryant for the most consecutive 30+ point games by a player age-33 or older! Stephen Curry has had one of the greatest shooting seasons we have ever since in the NBA and the records he has set this year are some that will go down as some of the greatest performances in NBA history.
