It was only a matter of time before Steph Curry broke the Warriors’ franchise assist record.
After slowly creeping toward Guy Rodgers’ mark of 4,855, Curry finally accomplished the feat on Monday night with his second assist in a 128-97 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Shortly after he reached the milestone, Curry’s teammates Klay Thompson and Draymond Green appeared in a recorded congratulatory video tweeted by the NBA account. And they had jokes.
“I am 20 percent of all your assists made,” Thompson said. “Thank you for making me look so good. To be exact, that’s actually 965 of them. I’m not going to say I can remember each one of them, but the one that stands out is probably the flick underneath during the 37-point quarter, left-handed across court. The lob you threw me in that game, too.
“So many great moments, my man. And I can’t wait to make more with you.”
Pretty much all of Dub Nation agrees.
Draymond also had to check the numbers before filming his shout out.
“Steph, my brother, congratulations, man,” Green said. “Although I’m not a Splash Brother, ironically, I have accounted for 10 percent of your assists. Had I made a few more, you might have caught the Magic man by now.”
Curry topped Rodgers when Kelly Oubre Jr. made this driving layup early in the third quarter.
That’s a pretty liberal assist call from the official scorer at Chase Center, considering Oubre took three dribbles from beyond the 3-point line, but it’s history now.
Curry, Thompson and Green have been through a lot and this is another reminder of the greatness they’ve accomplished together. Cherish this trio while you can, Dub Nation.
