Steph Curry scored 47 points in the Golden State Warriors 119-114 loss to the Boston Celtics, becoming the first player since Kobe Bryant to score at least 30 points in 10 straight games at age 33 or older.
“Statistically, it is for sure. This season’s required something a little bit different. I’m trying to meet that moment. It’s a fun brand of basketball; just trying to put wins together with it.
“And I have supreme confidence; I’ve been blessed with a very special skill set that I’m trying to continue to master and hone and get better at,” said Curry of his achievement.
Curry also went 11-of-19 from three, the 20th time in his career he’s made over 10 3s in a game.
The Warriors are currently ninth in the Western Conference.
Curry added that he is appreciating the moment.
“The work pays off, and the confidence is there; there’s that flow and that rhythm that doesn’t happen by accident. You definitely appreciate what you put into it. It’s not like, ‘Oh, I just did that.’ It’s more so reaping the benefits of everything that goes into that. It’s a different type of experience with that.”
