Steph Curry is the NBA scoring champion for the second time in his remarkable career, and he secured that feat while the Golden State Warriors clinched the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.

Curry scored 49 points in 40 minutes — along with dishing out nine assists and pulling down seven rebounds — to lead the Warriors to a 113-101 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday. The two-time NBA MVP made nine three-pointers.

Curry finishes the season averaging 32.0 points per game (he averaged 30.1 when leading the NBA in scoring in 2015-16), and joins Michael Jordan as the only players to lead the NBA in scoring at age 33 or older.

Another amazing season by Curry, and it will be interesting to see if he can lead the Warriors to a surprise playoff run. The Warriors will face the Portland Trail Blazers or Los Angeles Lakers in the play-in tournament. Warriors-Lakers would certainly be a thriller, and that will happen if — on Sunday night — the Blazers beat the Denver Nuggets or the Lakers lose to the New Orleans Pelicans.
