The two-time MVP still has a lot of work ahead in order to climb the NBA's all-time chart. His 4,854 dimes entering Tuesday put him 74th in league history.

Curry's name will undoubtedly be all over the Warriors' record books. He's already the franchise leader in made threes (2,671), is on pace to catch Chris Mullin's all-time appearance mark (807) next season and needs 106 steals to chase down Mullin in that category, too. 

Wilt Chamberlain's scoring record is likely to go down this season since the gap between him and Curry only stands at 279 points.
