Bogut says Steph's better than NBA Jam player catching fire

Steph Curry

Close your eyes and you can hear the voice: "He's on fire!" 

If you're a fan of nostalgic video game, you instantly heard those three words in the voice of the announcer from NBA Jam. And if Steph Curry was around when the video game was the hottest thing for basketball fans, kids would have heard those words over and over again playing with the Warriors.

Former Warriors center Andrew Bogut, who was teammates with Curry on Golden State, believes No. 30 is even hotter right now than when a player would quite literally catch fire in NBA Jam. 

He isn't wrong, either. 

After dropping 49 points to lead the Warriors to a big-time 107-95 win against the Philadelphia 76ers on the road, Curry now has scored at least 30 points in 11 straight games, passing Kobe Bryant for the most consecutive such games for a player at least 33 years old. 

Curry's April has him on a different planet. There are no words for what he's doing, only insane stats.

Through 10 games in April, he's averaging 40.8 points per game while shooting 54.9 percent from the field, 50.3 percent from 3 and 90.9 percent on free throws. 

Those are somehow better than video-game numbers, and Bogut knows it.
