Stephen Curry joins Wilt Chamberlain as the only players in Warriors’ history to score 17,000+ career points

On Tuesday, Stephen Curry joined Wilt Chamberlain in the exclusive list in the Warriors’ close 111-107 defeat against the Boston Celtics. The pair are the only players in the history of the Golden State Warriors to have scored at least 17,000 career points.

The megastar guard ended with game-highs of 38 points and 11 rebounds on top of eight assists and three steals. He shot 12-of-21 from the field and 7-of-14 from long distance. It became difficult for the Celtics to contain him.

Unfortunately, the Warriors came up short against the Celtics. The Warriors’ already-depleted frontcourt rotation took a hit Tuesday. Rookie draft pick No. 2 James Wiseman is sidelined with a sprained left wrist that he hurt during a rout of Detroit on Saturday night. Golden State also lost starting center Kevon Looney to a sprained left ankle that kept him out during the second half. 

Curry’s 3-pointer with 1:03 to go in the third quarter got his team within 81-80. He counted on his lesser-known supporting cast of Juan Toscano-Anderson and Kent Bazemore in a matchup of teams each missing a key player. 

In the final seconds of the game Andrew Wiggins’ layup made it a 3-point game. After which Tatum converted two free-throws to set some margin for the Warriors to cover. Leading up to the last seconds, Stephen Curry missed his contested 3. The Boston Celtics ended the Warriors 3-game winning streak even though Curry’s game seemed to be on fire.

“Steph is just an incredible player. If you ask me, he’s the best Warrior of all-time. That’s probably not going out on a limb. I don’t know a whole lot about the records and stuff, I just know we’re damn lucky to have him. He’s amazing,” said Warriors’ coach Steve Kerr, after the game.

The two-time MVP’s scoring output pushed his career total to 17,011. Curry is close to eclipsing Chamberlain’s record of 17,783 points in a Warriors jersey.
