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.
With seven assists so far in tonight’s game Stephen Curry has passed the 4,000 career-assist mark (4, 002). He joins Guy Rodgers (4,855) as only the second Warriors player reach the 4,000 assist milestone.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) November 12, 2017
