'Best of the best': Steph Curry breaks his own NBA record

Stephen Curry’s incredible start to the new NBA season got even better after the Golden State star broke one of his own records against Phoenix.

The Warriors point guard had already notched a career-first by scoring at least 30 points in his opening three games of the season.

While he fell agonisingly short of maintaining that incredible record against the Phoenix (29 points), Curry manage to claim another milestone (or two).

Curry’s six 3-pointers (from 13 attempts) took his tally to 22 (from 47) from four games so far this season – breaking a record of 21 in four that he set in 2015/16.

In what turned out to be a special night for Curry and his father Dell, the Warriors star’s 29 points moved the pair above Dolph and Danny Schayes into second on the all-time list of father-son point scorers.

Between the two of them, the Currys have amassed 27,226 points and now trail only Joe and Kobe Bryant, who combined for a staggering 38,895 points.

The stunning achievements from the two-time league MVP left many fans heralding him as one of the greatest players to ever grace the court.

Curry is shooting at 46.8 percent from 3-point territory so far this season.

If the five-time All Star can maintain his form over the course of the season, then he’s on track to shatter the NBA record of 402 3-pointers that he set in that 2015-16 campaign.
