Video: Warriors’ Stephen Curry reaches 16,000 career points
In a night when his fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson eclipsed Peja Stojakovic for the 17th spot in the all-time list for 3-pointers made, two-time MVP Stephen Curry reached a statistical accomplishment of his own, becoming the fifth player in Golden State Warriors history to reach 16,000 career points.
In a potential Western Conference Finals match-up, the Warriors are already displaying mastery of the Oklahoma City Thunder, with Curry and Thompson leading the way.
As of this writing, the Dubs are leading the Thunder 64-49. Curry has 19 points, three rebounds, and two assists. While Thompson has 14 markers, six boards, and three dimes.
Both teams are expected to make a deep run in the playoffs, but the Warriors have bigger goals this season as they are attempting to win their third straight title, something that has only been done four times in league history.
The Thunder is considered as one of the biggest threats to the Warriors’ three-peat aspirations, and they’ve constantly been a contender despite the fact that Kevin Durant left them a couple of years ago to join the Warriors.
With the regular season ending a couple of weeks from now, expect both teams to take their game to the next level as they prepare for the playoffs.
And expect the Warriors to be ready to defend their crown against any team they will be going up against.
