Stephen Curry is the second oldest player to score over 60 points in a game, right after Kobe Bryant who was the oldest, at 37. Curry’s previous best performance was 54 points against the New York Knicks in February 2013. The 50-point night was the NBA’s first of the season, the 60 points total for a Warrior is the first since Klay Thompson in 2016.
With NBA games played behind closed doors, the Golden State Warriors and head coach Steve Kerr were super enthusiastic about this win. On creating this record, Stephen Curry also thanked his fans, family and team for their endless support as well as love.
