Steph Curry was in sizzling form tonight. His 31-point game put him in a very exclusive club consisting of Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
Steph Curry continues to break records and create history. Tonight’s 31-point performance was his 7th after turning 34. Only two other players have a similar record. Who are they?
LeBron James and Michael Jordan, of course. The two most dominant players in basketball have always racked up mind-bending statistics over the years and it is no surprise to see that these two also have more than seven 30-point games after turning 34.
Incidentally, both Jordan and LeBron went on to win the championship after achieving this feat. They also won the Finals MVP award.
