Stephen Curry might be coming off the bench on a minutes restriction, but that has not stopped him from his usual offensive explosiveness. In-Game 2 of the Warriors-Nuggets first-round series went off for one of his patented scoring sprees while making some history along the way.

In typical Curry fashion, a pull-up three-pointer made history. The bucket punctuated a huge run to come back from an early 12-point deficit to a 57-49 lead with a minute to go in the first half. The triple made the two-time MVP the first player in franchise history to score 3,000 career postseason points. Curry is also the 27th player in League history to score 3,000 points in their playoff career.
Curry finished Game 2 with a game-high 34 points after coming off the bench for a second straight game to lead Golden State to a 126-106 win over Denver to go up 2-0 in their best-of-seven playoff series.
