Editor's note: Stephen Curry's unprecedented NBA career has entered its 10th season, so we visited with the Warriors star to detail his top 10 moments, and he obliged.

Steph Curry's first taste of the NBA playoffs came in 2013, when the No. 6 seed Warriors faced the No. 3 Denver Nuggets. After dropping Game 1 in Denver, Golden State won the next two and needed to claim Game 4 to keep home-court advantage in the series.

Although Curry scored just seven points in the first half, the Warriors took a 12-point lead into the locker room. That advantage ballooned to 19 points entering the fourth quarter because the six-time All-Star went off in the third, racking up 22 points.

Curry shot 8 of 11 from the field in the quarter, and the Oracle Arena crowd went absolutely bonkers. The Warriors won 115-101, as Curry finished with 31 points on 10-of-16 shooting, including 6 of 11 on 3-pointers.

"It was a great test for me to prove to myself that I was ready for that stage," Curry told NBC Sports Bay Area about the series that the Warriors eventually won in six games.

Watch the video above to hear more about why this made Curry's top 10 moments in his 10-year career, which now features three NBA titles, two league MVPs and six All-Star appearances.
