What are Stephen Curry's highest scoring games?
Stephen Curry’s 18,500 career points set the tone for his new legacy. Take a look at his highest scoring games, including his 62-point game against the Blazers.
On Wed, Oct 20, 2021, we saw Curry and the Golden State Warriors pulling off a 121-114 win over the Los Angeles Lakers in the second game of the 2021-22 Opening Night doubleheader. In what was a poor shooting night for Curry, he only went for 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Warriors.
Less than 48 hours later, Curry pulls off a performance that’s short of his brilliance in a 115-113 win over the LA Clippers, Thursday night. Focused and fast, Curry poured in 45 points in a showcase that included two game-defining 3-pointers in the final two minutes to secure the win.
Even with his comeback performance that left the crowd in awe Thursday night, this wasn’t one of Curry’s high-scoring games. Let’s take a look at Curry’s top five highest scoring games in his NBA career:
Jan. 3, 2021: 62 points vs. Trail Blazers
On Jan, 3 2021, Curry netted his career with 62-points at home against the Portland Trail Blazers 137-122 win. Facing one of the best point guards in the NBA, Damian Lillard, Curry made a statement with his performance shooting 18 of 31 from the field, 8 of 16 from 3-point range and 18 of 19 from the free-throw line. This game was a career-high for Curry entering the 60-point club among some of the greatest players.
In 2013, Curry put on a show at Madison Square Garden in one of his best performances in the regular season. He made 11 of his 13 attempts from the three-point line in that game, and scored 54 points against the New York Knicks.
Four days before this game, Curry rallied up 40 points against the Pelicans, in the 2015-16 season, which was a good starting point for him in New Orleans. A few days later, he went up to 53 points against the Pelicans, paving the way for his greatest NBA year, and leading himself to a well-deserved unanimous MVP award.
Oct. 24, 2018: 51 points vs. Washington Wizards
This was not the only game where Curry achieved 51 points; he’s achieved 51 on four separate occasions and 50 points in seven different games.
