The seven-time All-Star accomplished the feat in his own groundbreaking fashion, making 10 3-pointers — two more than the entire Nuggets team. The performance was his 18th with at least 10 made 3s, far and away the most such games in league history. Warriors teammate Klay Thompson is second with five games of 10 made 3s or more.

Curry, whom Golden State drafted seventh overall in 2009, already owns the team’s all-time marks for most assists, 3-pointers, and free throw percentage in a Warriors uniform. He is also on pace to pass Chris Mullin for the Warriors records for all-time steals and games played within the next season or two, health permitting.

Though Golden State is struggling under the weight of injuries to Thompson and No. 2 overall pick James Wiseman, Curry is enjoying his best statistical season since his back-to-back MVP seasons in 2015 and 2016. The 33-year-old guard, who played just five games last year due to injury himself, is averaging 29.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 1.3 steals while shooting 48.3% overall, 41.2% from beyond the arc and 92.4% from the free throw line.
