Believe it or not, it's been almost a full decade since Gilbert Arenas scored 60 points in the Wizards' overtime victory against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers. Arenas put up 16 in the extra period to seal the win, setting an NBA record for overtime points in the process.
That record stood from December 18, 2006 until last night, when Stephen Curry dropped 17 points in overtime of Game 5 between the Warriors and Trail Blazers. Golden State won 132-125 to take a 3-1 series lead on Portland.

A few wrinkles to add context: Curry was playing his first game back from an MCL sprain that held him out for two weeks; he would go on to win the NBA's first unanimous MVP award the next day, according to reports.
Here's a supercut of all 17 of his overtime points. Enjoy.
