Seven incredible stats that highlight Steph's unreal run originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Steph Curry is not of this world, and we will likely never see a talent such as his take the basketball court again.
The Warriors star has put together an unreal 10-game run in which he has been impaling opposing defenses before dousing them in kerosene and lighting them on fire, before strutting back down the court with a smile on his face that belies his assassin-like desire to gut eviscerate those trying to stop his legendary stretch.
The Curry fireball ripped through the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, with the two-time MVP pouring in 49 points while shooting 14-of-28 from the field, including 10-of-17 from distance in the Warriors' 107-95 win.
It's impossible to put into words how dominant Curry has been. It has been domination of the highest order, a masterclass in demoralizing and destroying all those who dare to defend him.
With words not doing it justice, here are seven stats that show the incredible nature of what Curry is doing.
WIth his 10 3-pointers on Monday night, Curry now has six games this season in which he has hit at least 10 3-pointers. No other player in NBA history has more than five in their career.
Those 49 points Curry poured against the 76ers give him five 40-point games in April, passing Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant for the most 40-point games in a month by anyone 33 or older.
Curry now also has scored at least 30 points in 11 straight games, which also passes Bryant for the most consecutive 30-plus point games by a player 33 or older.
In 10 games in April, Curry is averaging 40.8 points per game on 7.2 3-pointers while shooting 54.9 percent from the field, 50.3 percent from 3-point range and 90.9 percent from the free-throw line.
That's right, Curry, in April, has made his own 50/50/90 club.
In those last 10 games, Curry has made 72(!) 3-pointers which is the most 3-pointers by any NBA player during a 10-game stretch in history.
In the last six games, Curry is lapping the field in terms of 3-pointers made.
There's not much more to say about the greatness that's being witnessed on a nightly basis. It truly is the stuff of legend.
And it grows every night Curry takes the floor.
