Warriors guard Stephen Curry scores 21 points in the first quarter against the Nuggets on Monday night as he surpasses Wilt Chamberlain to become the all-time leading scorer in franchise history.
Curry 17,784 points & still counting - now sits at the top of his game with the Golden State Warriors as the highest scorer ever.
This is a huge achievement for the newly all-time scoring leader - He erupted with 53 points to pass Wilt Chamberlain's all-time Golden State scoring record as the Warriors downed the Denver Nuggets 116-107.
Curry started the game needing only 19 points to overtake Chamberlain's tally of 17,783 points set between 1959 and 1965 and he broke the record in a hurry, moving in 21 points in the first quarter.
The favourite swamped past Chamberlain's mark towards the end of the first quarter, raising his arms in celebration to acknowledge his new milestone.
Curry's final points included ten three-pointers with seven rebounds and four assists.
He then went on to comment on his achievement saying, “That’s surreal to be honest. I don’t know how many years he played here, but got a lot of buckets. Obviously ,a legend who remains across the whole league, but obviously wearing a Warriors uniform and having been here my whole career, it’s pretty crazy. So I’ve got a couple more points to score, hopefully some more wins in the process, but it’s a wild thought in general.”
Congratulations to Stephen Curry on moving past Wilt Chamberlain as the franchise's all-time scoring leader.
