Entering Wednesday night’s road game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Curry is on one of the hottest streaks of his career as he propels Golden State in its playoff push.

The Warriors enter Wednesday’s game in 10th place in the Western Conference, a game ahead of the New Orleans Pelicans for the final spot in the play-in field.

Golden State has won three of its past four games, with victories over the Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets during that stretch.

Conversely, Oklahoma City lost its seventh straight game in a 106-96 defeat to the Utah Jazz on Tuesday.

Curry has 30 or more points in seven consecutive games since he returned from a tailbone injury. During that span, he is averaging 38.4 points per game and is shooting 53.5 percent from the floor.

Curry is coming off a 53-point performance in Monday’s win over the Nuggets. In the first quarter, he passed Wilt Chamberlain to become the Warriors’ franchise scoring leader.

“To be anywhere near him in any record book or now be on top, it’s surreal,” Curry said. “And it’s wild. Because if you grow up in the game of basketball and you hear his name, you know it’s something extremely special, no matter what it is.”
