In an electrifying display of basketball prowess, Golden State Warriors' phenom Stephen Curry set a new standard in the NBA during their clash against the Washington Wizards at Chase Center. The Friday night game, initially spotlighted for Jordan Poole's return, quickly shifted focus to Curry's remarkable performance.

With a stunning stat line of 30 points, 7 assists, and 8 three-pointers in less than 27 minutes, Curry etched his name in the annals of NBA history as the first to achieve such a feat in this time frame.

Curry's Historic Feat

Curry's performance was not just a flash in the pan but a continuation of his legacy as one of the game's greats.

Playing for just under 27 minutes, primarily due to the game's scoreline, he amassed a record-breaking stat line that, even without the assists, was extraordinary. His tally marked only the 15th instance in NBA history where a player scored at least 30 points with 8 three-pointers in 27 minutes or fewer.

However, Curry's addition of 7 assists set him apart, making him the first to accomplish this remarkable combination. This game added yet another milestone to Curry's illustrious career. The match marked his 75th game scoring at least 8 three-pointers, a record that towers over the rest in the NBA.

Damian Lillard, the next closest in this regard, has achieved this feat 29 times. Furthermore, Curry has now made 8 or more threes in fewer than 30 minutes on 12 occasions, doubling the record held by the next closest player.

Describing Curry as the greatest shooter of all time might be an understatement. This latest achievement underscores the vast chasm between his skills and those of any other player in the history of basketball. His ability to consistently perform at such a high level, often in limited playing time, not only dazzles fans and analysts alike but also redefines the standards of excellence in the sport.

Curry's historic night at Chase Center is a testament to his unparalleled talent and a reminder of his significant impact on the game of basketball. As he continues to break records and set new benchmarks, Curry's legacy as an all-time great only grows stronger, captivating the imagination of basketball enthusiasts around the world.
