Steph Curry continues to do completely unprecedented things on the basketball court. The Golden State Warriors’ guard scored 49 points in a 107-96 road victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, on 14-of-28 shooting from the field, 11-of-12 shooting from the charity stripe, and 10-of-17 on three-pointers.

Curry is on (yet another) amazing run, and it’s led to some truly absurd statistical nuggets.

The two-time NBA MVP (he’s certainly making a case for three-time) now has five 40-point games in April, passing Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan for the most 40-point games in a month by a player who’s at least 33 years old.

He’s also the first player age 33 or older to have 11 consecutive games with at least 30 points, passing Bryant.

He’s averaging 40.7 points per game this month, while shooting 55% from the field, 50% from three-point range, and 91% from the free-throw line.

And the three-point shooting achievements are particularly ridiculous.

Curry has six games with at least 10 three-pointers this season. No other player in NBA history has this many such games in their entire career.

Curry has 46 threes over his last five games, more than any player in NBA history. And four of those games featured at least 10 three-pointers.

He’s made 72 threes over his last 10 games, also the most in NBA history.

And this Twitter thread from Tommy Beer of Forbes features plenty of mind-blowing factoids even *entering* Monday night’s game:

Curry’s remarkable shooting ways are keeping the Warriors in the Western Conference playoff mix at 29-29 (currently tied for ninth and in great shape to at least make the Play-In tournament).
