Steph Curry Makes NBA History vs. Utah Jazz

Despite struggling from the field for most of the game, Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry did a little bit of everything on Monday night against the Utah Jazz, and found his shot in the fourth quarter to lead his team to their 5th straight win.

Finishing with a line of 25 points, 10 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, 1 block, and 7 threes, Curry joined himself, James Harden, Luka Doncic, and Monta Ellis as the only players in NBA history to post this line or better in a game. This was Curry’s 4th time doing it, which is the most by any player in NBA history (data via Basketball Reference’s StatHead).

More remarkable than this overall line from Curry, was that he did it on zero free throw attempts, which is the only time in NBA history it has happened. Curry posted this line with just three free throws in 2015, which was the fewest until this game when Curry shot zero free throws.

Curry has shot just four total free throws the last three games, but that hasn’t stopped him from dominating. The Warriors have been rolling lately, and the play of Curry is a big reason why.

Now back in a play-in spot, the Warriors hope to continue building off this momentum. With Curry at this level, they can truly beat anybody, and they continue to prove that throughout this winning streak.
