Steph Curry Records 1st 2,000-Point Season of Career

Bleacher Report MilestonesB/R StaffMarch 23, 2016

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry enters Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers with 2,016 points during the 2015-16 season, marking the first time in his career he's topped 2,000 in a single campaign, per Sportsnet Stats.

Though he still leads the league in scoring average (30.1) by a comfortable margin, Curry actually limped to the 2,000-point plateau, putting up just 19 points in Monday's 109-104 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves while making only six of his 19 field-goal attempts and two of his nine three-point tries.

Of course, Curry's poor performance in Saturday's 87-79 loss to the San Antonio Spurs drew far more attention, with the 28-year-old point guard making just four of his 18 field-goal attempts and one of his 12 three-point attempts in a 14-point outing that arguably represents his worst showing of the season.

To be fair, Curry is still averaging 27.1 points per game during March, as his two-game cold streak was proceeded by five consecutive outings with 27 or more points.

While a 30.1 scoring average puts him well ahead of second-place James Harden (28.5), it is possible that Curry could only finish second in total points, as he currently trails Harden (2,024) by eight.

The Houston Rockets star has played in each of his team's 71 games to date, whereas Curry has missed a few games due to minor injuries, appearing in 67 out of a possible 70 contests.
