Stephen Curry keeps defying age and making history with his extraordinary performances. The reigning Finals MVP and four-time champion did not have a strong start to his season for the Golden State Warriors, but it now seems like he has gotten back to his very best – and back-to-back 40-point performances for the defending champions certainly seem to point in that direction.

After racking up a season high 47 points for the Warriors against the Sacramento Kings, Curry scored 40 yet again when the Warriors welcomed the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night. The Warriors were helped to a 106-101 victory over the in form Cavs courtesy of Stephen Curry who put up an incredible show against the clock in the final few seconds of the contest.

With the clock rapidly winding down to its last few seconds and the Warriors only leading the Cavs by one point, it was Curry time as the four-time champion did what he does best – evading opponent defenders and getting an incredible three-pointer away. Curry performed a trademark look-away three, as the Warriors extended their lead – and eventually won the game.

Curry ended the game with a performance that tallied 40 points, 4 assists and 5 rebounds. Not only was the performance important enough to win the game for the Golden State Warriors, but it was also enough for Curry to equal an incredible feat last achieved by Michael Jordan.

The 40 point performance meant that Stephen Curry became the oldest player with consecutive 40-point games since Michael Jordan in 2002. At 34, Curry became the oldest player to rack up consecutive 40 point games since Jordan did it for the Washington Wizards in 2022.

Curry’s return to form has been an incredible asset for the defending champions, who want to get their season back on track after an uncharacteristic start.
