Stephen Curry passes Wilt Chamberlain for all-time Warriors field goals

Stephen Curry scored 38 points in Golden State’s win over Oklahoma City.

Stephen Curry topped another statistical category in the Warriors’ record books on Monday, passing NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain for most field goals made in franchise history.

Curry had already done that owns the #1 sites in games played, three-pointers made, assists, steals and total points in a Warriors uniform. His 38-point performance at Golden State’s 128-120 the win over Oklahoma City pushed him ahead of Chamberlain in shots made, another line on Curry’s already glittering resume.

He beat Chamberlain on a layup with 8:55 left in the third quarter that pushed the Warriors’ lead to 71-52.

Curry is also the Warriors’ all-time leader in field goal attempts, free throw percentage and turnovers. He needs 1,640 more free throws and 2,481 more free throw attempts to pass Hall of Famer Paul Arizin for those marks and trails only Anthony Morrow (46%) in career 3-point percentage (Curry’s is of 42.8%).

In a unique moment, Curry chatted with University of Oklahoma women’s basketball star Taylor Robertson before the game. Robertson, who wears No. 30 like Curry and wore a Curry jersey to the game, set the NCAA women’s career record by 3 seconds on Saturday.

Selected seventh overall in the 2009 Draft, Curry was named to the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team last year, a feat he immediately followed up with his fourth NBA championship. The 34-year-old also has a pair of Kia MVP trophies, eight All-Star appearances, two scoring titles, an All-Star MVP award and a steals crown.
