How Many Games Does Stephen Curry Need to Pass Michael Jordan? Breaking Down the Numbers From Warriors Superstar’s Latest Record

While Michael Jordan’s record as the greatest of all time remains relatively unshaken, a specific feat of MJ’s could be under imminent threat. Stephen Curry could be well on track to surpass His Airness in one scoring category. The Golden State Warriors star is gracefully defying the effects of time. However, he’ll still need to further elevate his game to surpass Mike. In his recent performance, Curry displayed his shooting prowess in an impressive win against the Kings.

The Baby-Faced Assassin is indeed turning back the clock. But the question remains, how many games will it take for him to dethrone the legend? And will Curry be able to remain in top form for that long?

Stephen Curry could usurp Michael Jordan this season

When it comes to all-time scoring, few could top MJ. In fact, only one man in NBA history has achieved more 40-point games than Mike; the legendary Wilt the Stilt Chamberlain. Jordan had 173 40-point outings during his career while Chamberlain tallied a ridiculous 271! Stephen Curry is further down the list with 71. But there is one caveat to his dominance.

Steph’s performance against Sacramento marked his 33rd instance of scoring 40 or more points since turning 30. This has brought him tantalizingly close to Jordan’s record 44 40-point games after turning 30.

So, the big question on every fan’s mind is how many more games does Curry need to snatch the top spot? Well, of course, 11 40-point outings would get him there. But, based on his record thus far, how long would it take Steph to amass 11 more 40-point games?

Calculating from his current scoring rate of the 9x NBA All-Star player which is 6.15 games per 40-point performance, Curry will have to tally 12 more 40-point performances to overtake MJ. To eclipse Jordan’s record, he’ll have to maintain this impressive pace over the course of the next 73 games.

Luckily for us, the NBA season has just started! Considering his recent outstanding performance against long-time rivals, the star is getting closer to accomplishing his mission.

Curry was spectacular against the Kings

In an electrifying playoff rematch, Stephen Curry’s sensational 41-point display propelled the Warriors to a 122-114 win against the Sacramento Kings. His exceptional performance showcased his scoring prowess, ensuring a crucial victory for his team.

His return in the third quarter was a spectacular turning point for the Warriors, as they surged ahead. While they faced challenges in the late game, Curry’s extraordinary game highlighted by a game-sealing 28-foot three-pointer, made up an unforgettable match.

With that, all eyes will be fixated on him as he draws nearer to the challenge of Jordan’s historic feat. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.
