The Warriors team is really picking up and Stephen Curry has been the focal point of the team in the last two games. This time he hit the winning three with the horn sounding and Golden State beat Phoenix in a blowout. In addition, the San Francisco team came out of a negative record for the first time since December 25.
Stephen Curry has been unstoppable in recent games
In the Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns (113:112), Stephen Curry made his ninth three of the game at the sound of the horn. Golden State is now 25-25 on the season, sticking to the script of coach Kerr, who predicted after the win against Philadelphia that it was only a matter of time before the team would get back to where it belongs.
Since then, the Warriors have been riding a winning streak and this time the Suns took it away. The all-time leading scorer from 3-point range has made 20 successful threes on 32 shot attempts in the last two games. Curry recorded the 10th game-winning shot of his career.
Curry finished the game with 30 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Even at 35 years old, he is still his team’s all-time leading scorer with an average of 28.1 points per game. Moreover, he is slowly clawing his way into the top scorers this season. He is now the 6th best scorer in the league.
He has already made 225 threes this season and he dominates this statistic again. Second in the standings, Luka Doncic is 51 behind.
However, it was a very even game on both sides. Neither team built up more than a seven-point lead during the game. Curry was complemented by youngster Jonathan Kuminga, who scored 21 points. The 21-year-old is slowly taking over for club icon Klay Thompson. This is not only reflected in his minutes on the floor. Thompson scored just 5 points.
The star trio on the other side was led by Devin Booker with 32 points, Kevin Durant added 24 points and 10 rebounds and Bradley Beal had 15 points. However, they did not avert a narrow defeat. The Warriors came out of negative territory for the first time since Dec. 25.
Stephen Curry is now over the 23,000-point mark
After the last game, Stephen Curry already has 23,031 points in 929 regular season games played. He is already 39th in the historical scorers’ table. With a career average of 24.8 points per game, he should move past the legendary Charles Barkley by the end of the season.
Of the active players so far, only Lebron James (Lakers), Kevin Durant (Suns), James Harden and Russell Westbrook (both Clippers) are better off. Moreover, Curry is only 118 points behind the legendary Elgin Baylor, whom he should catch within five games played.
