Steph Curry becomes second Warriors player ever with 4,000 career assists

Stephen Curry may be known for his 3-point shooting, but the Warriors point guard is showing that he is a great passer.

Curry entered Saturday's game against the 76ers with 3,995 career assists. With a dish to Nick Young for a 3-pointer in the third quarter, Curry collected his 4,000th career assist, becoming the second player in Warriors franchise history to reach that number.

The two-time NBA MVP now only trails Hall of Famer Guy Rodgers, who amassed 4,855 assists during his eight seasons with the Philadelphia and San Francisco Warriors.

Earlier this season, Curry passed Tim Hardaway (3,926) for second on the all-time franchise leaderboard.

Curry finished with the game with nine assists and now sits at 4,004 for his career.

In each of the last five seasons, Curry has eclipsed 500 assists. In 2013-14, Curry finished with a career-high 666 assists. If he stays on his current pace, he should pass Rodgers at some point during the 2018-19 season.

The Warriors announced that Durant is dealing with a left ankle sprain.

Durant finished with 27 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in the Warriors' 124-116 comeback win over the 76ers.

Kevin Durant takes shot at Zaza Pachulia while center's kid play one-on-one

Kevin Durant doesn't take it easy on anyone. Not even the children of teammate Zaza Pachulia.

After practice on Saturday in Philadelphia, Pachulia's two sons, Davit and Saba, were playing one-on-one at the facility the Warriors were using. Kevin Durant filmed one sequence and posted it to his Instagram Story.

One of Pachulia's sons grabbed the ball and drives around the other without dribbling. As he makes the shot, Durant offers his commentary and took a shot at the Warriors starting center.

"That's a travel. Such a travel. Same thing your pops do," Durant said, taking a shot at Pachulia.

Durant also had another message for Pachulia written on the video.

"Yo, @zazapachulia at some you have to teach the boys how to play off the bounce," Durant wrote.
