The Golden State Warriors’ best of all time Stephen Curry officially became the NBA’s all-time three-point shooter last week. It turns out he’s a pretty adept passerby too.

While John Stockton’s NBA record for career assists is in little danger of being broken anytime soon – by Curry at least – No. 30 showed he was up against the best of them when the team lost to the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday can hand out if the occasion calls for it. It is noteworthy that on Sunday Curry delivered 10 assists for the fourth time this season and only achieved three sales.

The 2021-2022 season is still young, but Steph’s 6.7 assists per game this season is the highest he has averaged in six years. A penny on Sunday was especially mind-boggling.

First of all, the highlight court would never have happened if it hadn’t been for rookie Jonathan Kuminga’s brilliant defense against Hornets stud LaMelo Ball. After Steph picked up the loose ball, the Warriors’ pass was not only a fancy game, but heads-up, given Charlotte striker Cody Martin’s positioning on Curry and Jordan Poole spinning the other way.

At this point, it’s no surprise that the Curry-to-Poole support wasn’t Steph Curry’s only incredible highlight from Sunday’s game.

First, with 4.9 seconds to go in the third quarter, Hornets’ southpaw – and former Warriors forward Kelly Oubre Jr. – took a feed of ball and crotched a deep threesome to give Charlotte a very short 87-85 -Get guidance. Unfortunately for the Hornets play-by-play announcer and the rest of the home crowd, the Dubs kept their heads up and more magic happened after an inbound to Curry.

We can assume that the biggest shooter of all time is called “Bank” on the buzzer-beater of the third quarter.

Although the two curry gems could easily take places on the highlight reels at the end of the season, the end result of the competition was the Warriors’ first defeat in 17 days. Despite the defeat, Golden State still holds the best record in the NBA with its 11-2 mark.

They lead all 30 teams in the association with 115.1 points per game, allow the third fewest points with 101.8 and have a league-top difference of +13.3 points, which is more than twice as high as all other teams except for Utah Jazz (+6.7).

With all of these factors in play and arguably the leading MVP on your starting line-up, the Dubs are the clear # 1 in the latest power rankings for many news outlets, including ESPNs.

“Stephen Curry didn’t have the homecoming he wanted in Sunday’s Hornets defeat – he only shot 7-22 off the field – but 11-2 the Warriors are still feeling great in the direction they are headed go, thanks in large part to a deep line-up that played well together at the beginning of the year, ”wrote ESPN NBA reporter Nick Friedell. “The first big test of the season comes for the Warriors on Tuesday night when they see their former teammate Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets as they continue their first east coast sweep of the season.”
