It was a special night for Steph Curry in the Golden State Warriors’ 116-107 win over the Denver Nuggets on Monday.
Curry put together a ridiculous 53-point performance, going 10-of-18 on threes and 15-of-16 at the charity stripe.
It’s his third game with at least 50 points this season, and it’s seventh straight game of scoring at least 30 points.
Oh, and he became the all-time points leader in Warriors history!
With a layup in the first quarter, Curry passed Wilt Chamberlain (17,783) for the most points scored in Warriors history.

17,784 points & counting. The most ever by a Golden State Warrior.
Congrats to Stephen Curry on moving past Wilt Chamberlain as the franchise’s all-time scoring leader 👏 pic.twitter.com/qU7UXYUuMP

Curry will surely make the franchise scoring record very, very difficult for anybody else to catch up to.
Unfortunately, this game also featured a very concerning moment in its finish- Nuggets star guard Jamal Murray suffered a non-contact knee injury that looks serious.
