Per @EliasSports, Stephen Curry's 10-game 30-point streak ties Kobe Bryant for the most consecutive 30-point games by a player 33 years or older.

NBA legend Michael Jordan hit the seven-game mark on two separate occasions in 1996, per ESPN Stats & Info. He sits third on the aforementioned 33-and-older list.

Curry's streak also landed him alongside other great company. ESPN Stats & Info noted that Curry joined a Warrior franchise list that includes just him and former NBA superstar Wilt Chamberlain:
