Steph Curry knows how to put on a show.

With Wilt Chamberlain's franchise scoring record in sight entering Monday's game against the Denver Nuggets at Chase Center, Curry went above and beyond, finishing with 53 eye-popping points in the Warriors' 116-107 win.

Needing 19 points to eclipse Chamberlain's 17,783 points as a Warrior, Curry dropped an incredible 21 points in the first quarter, passing Wilt The Stilt on a driving layup around former teammate JaVale McGee.

The greatest scorer in Warriors' history didn't stop there. He added nine more points in the second quarter and finished the first half with 30 points.

After the halftime break, Curry was almost matched his first-quarter output, scoring 18 more points.

Through three quarters, Curry had a jaw-dropping 48 points on 10 3-pointers, and he left Portland Trail Blazers star C.J. McCollum in awe.

Curry, who is closing in on Ray Allen for the most 3-pointers in the history of the NBA, posted his 18th career game with 10 or more triples.

Curry re-entered the game with 6:38 remaining in the fourth quarter and he helped seal the Warriors' impressive win over the Nuggets.

After getting fouled by Facundo Campazzo, Curry made two free throws to notch his ninth career 50-point game.

Curry added three more free throws to close out his record-breaking night.

On a special night for Curry and the Warriors' franchise, the two-time NBA MVP put on a memorable performance that won't seen be forgotten.
