Stephen Curry had perhaps the game of his life Saturday night in a thrilling comeback victory over the Thunder in Oklahoma City.
Curry ended with a game-high 46 points, and hit a game-winning three - near halfcourt - with 0.6 seconds left, lifting the Warriors to a 53-5 record.
He also in that game broke his old NBA record for most threes in a single season, hitting his 288th with 24 games remaining in the regular season.
The morning after, current Knicks President and 11-time NBA champion coach Phil Jackson made a not-so-favorable comparison to Curry.
Never seen anything like SCurry? Remind you of Chris Jackson/ Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, who had a short but brilliant run in NBA?— Phil Jackson (@PhilJackson11) February 28, 2016
Chris Jackson, or Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, who was the third overall pick in the 1990 NBA Draft, had a brief pro career with the Nuggets and Kings.
He was a .354 career shooter from beyond the arc, and never named an All-Star.
Abdul-Rauf's best statistical seasons came in Denver, 16.0 points and 4.0 assists per game. His best single-game performance was a 51-point showcase against the Utah Jazz in 1995.
His career fizzled out after 1998, and Abdul-Rauf tried his hand in the Turkish, Russian and Saudi Basketball Leagues.
Curry averaged just 17.5 points per game as a rookie, but his last four campaigns have all been far superior to Abdul-Rauf's when it comes to numbers.
He is a .477 career shooter from 3-point range, with his percentages improving steadily over the past four seasons.
Curry is also coming off three consecutive All-Star nods, and an MVP season that culminated in a world championship.
He possesses four of the top six 3-point shooting seasons in NBA history.
Curry's 2015-16 season has been chock-full of record performances and broken barriers. Golden State is also currently on pace to finish with the best regular-season record in NBA history, surpassing the Michael Jordan's 1995-96 Chicago Bulls (72-10) - a team coached by Jackson.
