The GSW entered the Golden 1 Center with a clean 2-0 regular season record. In fact, the Steph Curry led Warriors were riding high from their epic win against the Clippers. However, an alley-oop from Richaun Holmes on a Tyrese Haliburton assist to start the game made it clear that this wouldn’t be an easy night.

After a 0-5 start, the Dubs Nation did bounce back with Curry’s splash threes but the Kings kept them flying low. Yet, it was only about time that the Baby Faced Assassin’s brilliance made way for the GSW’s comeback last in Q2. With that, the star also helped himself towards some individual achievements.

Steph Curry with yet another franchise record

Last year, Stephen Curry became the all-time point-leader for the Golden State Warriors franchise. He left behind legendary Wilt Chamberlain to achieve that feat. And now, in the 2021-22 game against the Kings, Steph’s seven assists before halftime got him yet another franchise record.

With the GSW trailing 40-46, the 33-YO sent a two-handed half-court pass towards Damion Lee for a three. That meant Steph’s 5000th career assist and also the most ever by a Warrior. Take a look at this groundbreaking moment –

Certainly, Steph might not have realised it in the heat of the moment, but he will be proud of himself once someone tells him. Currently, he is still 1577 assists away from breaking into the Top 25, but it’s a worthy achievement as a Warrior.

The Warriors struggled for a large part of the game. They missed a few easy layups, allowed Davion Mitchell to be a better defender, and lacked a similar defensive acumen. However, Steph Curry was still in the zone.
