Steph Curry had an outstanding night in the Warriors’ 127-113 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night. Curry went off for 50 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds to help his team move to 9-1.
Curry became the oldest NBA player ever to post a 50-point, 10-assists performance at 33 years old, surpassing Wilt Chamberlain, per The Athletic. Chamberlain held the previous record, set in a 53-point, 32-rebound, 14-assist outing at age 31 in 1968.
He has also recorded his 10th career 50-point game. He’s now tied with the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the 10th-most 50-point performances in league history, per Statmuse.
The Warriors’ superstar has become the third player of the franchise to record at least 50 points and 10 assists in a single contest, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
That was the first time Curry scored 50 points this season, as the Warriors improved their record at Chase Center to 6-1. They are sitting at the top of the West with nine wins in the first 10 games of the season.
