Steph Curry continues to write his name in NBA history books as the new all-time scoring leader of the Golden State Warriors, surpassing Wilt Chamberlain with 17,818 points.
Curry, who only needed to score 19 points against the Denver Nuggets to claim the record, ended up posting a sensational 53 points in the 116-107 victory on Monday night at the Oracle Arena. The point-guard became the seventh player ever in the NBA to record several seasons of three or more 50-point games.
Steve Kerr, head coach of the Warriors, congratulated Curry on this remarkable achievement saying as quoted by Hypebeast, “It’s just an incredible feat. Passing Wilt in anything statistically is sort of remarkable because his name is just all over the NBA record books. So the fact that Steph is about to break that record is just incredible and obviously a testament to what he’s done here in his 12 years, what an impact he’s made.”
Curry commented on his recent accolade saying, “That’s surreal to be honest. I don’t know how many years he played here, but got a lot of buckets. Obviously, a legend who remains across the whole league, but obviously wearing a Warriors uniform and having been here my whole career, it’s pretty crazy. So I’ve got a couple more points to score, hopefully some more wins in the process, but it’s a wild thought in general.”
