Warriors’ Stephen Curry breathes down Michael Jordan for insane old-man record

Stephen Curry, Michael Jordan, Warriors

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is not letting father time get the best of him as the two-time MVP is closing in on Michael Jordan’s insane record. After another incredible performance on Thursday night, the 33-year old continues to cement his legacy as one of the best players to ever play in the league with a feat not a lot of players have done.

Against the Los Angeles Clippers in their first game at home this season, the two-time scoring champ exploded for 45 points and 10 boards in an impressive 115-113 win. In doing so, according to ESPN Stats & Info, Curry now pushes himself as the player with the third-most 45-point games by a player aged 33 or older with a total of six. He now trails former Warriors icon Bernard King (8) and the Chicago Bulls legend who has a whopping tally of 11.

Curry was definitely GOAT-like on Thursday night as he help lift the Warriors to a 2-0 start early in the season. After a rather off-shooting night against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, the seven-time All-Star bounced back and erupted for 25 first-quarter points including five triples. He didn’t even miss in the game’s first 12 minutes, making all of his nine attempts from the field.

After missing a ton of time in the 2019-2020 NBA season, Curry slowly worked his way back to MVP-form last season and snatched his second scoring title at the end of the regular season. Despite losing to the Lakers in the play-in tournament, Curry still found himself in the MVP conversation last season and seems to be on pace for another record-breaking campaign this season.
