Steph Curry Sets Warriors Franchise Scoring Record

Steph Curry became the leading scorer in Warriors franchise history on Monday night, passing Wilt Chamberlain for top spot. The Big Dipper previously held the record of 17,783 points for the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors, averaging 41.5 ppg across 429 games for the franchise, which includes the NBA all-time mark of 50.4 ppg in the 1961-62 season.

Of course, Curry didn't rest on his laurels and proceeded to destroy the Denver Nuggets with 53 points on 14/24 FG, 10/18 3P & 15/16 FT in the Warriors 116-107 win. It was the 18th game in Steph's career with 10+ three point makes in a game, which is the same as the next 5 players combined. Crucially, the win keeps the Warriors in the hunt for the play-in tournament in the Western Conference, with 4+ weeks remaining in the regular season.
