Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry isn't slowing down one bit as he continues to break his own records in his 13th season in the NBA. On Sunday night against the Los Angeles Clippers, the two-time MVP passed himself for another incredible three-pointer milestone that further cemented his place as one of the best, if not the best, shooters to ever play in the league.
Curry has now etched his name in the record books by being the player with the most 3-pointers ever through the first 20 games in a regular-season, passing himself not once but twice (via The Athletic). The seven-time All-Star caught on fire once again against the Clippers, knocking down seven 3-pointers to lead the Warriors to their 18th win of the season.

Steph's historic numbers kept coming, too. Aside from being the fastest player in NBA history with 100+ threes, the seven-time All-Star also made franchise history by becoming the first Warrior to record at least 30-points, five rebounds, five assists, and five steals in a game since Baron Davis in the 2004-2005 NBA season (via Jason Kubaktko of StatMuse).

Curry became the fastest player in NBA history to reach 100 3PM in a season (19 games).
He's the first @warriors player to record at least 30p/5r/5a/5s in a game since Baron Davis on April 5, 2005.

After missing the playoffs for two straight seasons, Dub Nation seems to be back in their winning ways this season, and Curry's form has been the main driver of their success. The reigning two-time scoring champ is back as the league's top scorer early this season as Golden State sits at the top of the league. Yeah, go figure.
