The NBA season just started but we are are already witnessing some amazing things from the league’s biggest superstars. The most recent one to impress us with his basketball skills is Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, who put on a real shooting show in Wednesday night’s 144-122 win over Washington Wizards.

Curry, who is two-time NBA MVP, finished the game with 51 points while also adding five rebounds and three assists. This feat was even more impressive considering that the 30-year-old was 15-for-24 from the field and made 11 three-pointers out of 16 attempts while being perfect from the free throw line.

Everything felt in rhythm,” – said Curry after the game. “You start to get good looks, you don’t have to force anything to find them, and you can just repeat that same motion, and it’s going in. The crowd gets into it, my teammates are encouraging me. The last 3 in the first quarter is probably the funniest thing I’ve experienced on the court where two guys on my team are yelling at me from the time I was at the other free throw line like, ‘Don’t pass it, don’t pass it. You better shoot it,’ all that type of stuff. I’m hearing that while I’m dribbling down, and it was kind of all the motivation you need just to launch it, and thankfully it went in.”

I don’t even know how to describe what I witnessed tonight,” – Warriors coach Steve Kerr added. “Amazing. Video game stuff.”

Stephen Curry didn’t only help his team win with this epic performance, but he also made progress on the NBA’s career 3-point scoring leaders list, climbing to the fifth spot. Curry currently has 2,162 three-pointers made, which is enough to top Jamal Crawford’s figure of 2,154.

Curry has started the 2018-19 NBA season in a ferocious was and currently averages 34.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game.
