The big numbers and social reaction to Steph Curry’s 62-point night

January 4, 2021

It was a big night for Stephen Curry. The Golden State Warriors’ superstar set a career-high with 62 points in Golden State’s win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night at the Chase Center in San Francisco.

Curry’s 62 points are the most by a Warrior since Rick Barry scored 64 in 1974. Curry is also the second-oldest, at 32 years and 295 days, to score 60. Kobe Bryant did it at age 37.

There are more wild numbers from the game:

Curry is the first player with 62 points (or more) in 36 minutes (or fewer) since Bryant had exactly 62 points in 33 minutes on Dec. 20, 2005, against the Dallas Mavericks.

Curry and Klay Thompson are the only Warriors to score 55 or more points in a game in the past 30 years.

This was Curry’s seventh 50-point game, breaking a tie with Kevin Durant for the fourth most among active players.

Curry hit 8 3-pointers in the game. It is his 49th career game with 8 3s. That is more than double James Harden, who is second on the list with 21 such games.

However, he did miss a free throw for the first time in 80 attempts.
