The 10 best games of Stephen Curry's career

Stephen Curry was special against the Wizards, scoring 51 points while draining 11-16 from beyond the three-point line.

If it feels like you've seen him do it before, it's because you have.

This was the fifth time in his career that he's scored at least 50 points and made 10 threes. All other players in NBA history have combined to do it three times with nobody else doing it more than once.

So yeah, he's pretty good.

Because Curry has had so many great games, it felt like an opportune time to rank the 10 best games of his career.

Since any ranking of games has some degree of subjectivity, we chose to strictly rank them by Game Score, a stat that takes into account every item in a typical box score - points, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals, field goals, free throws and turnovers.

Are there memorable games that didn't make the cut? Of course. Like when he set the all-time record for made 3s in a game. Or when he scored 17 points in a single overtime period. Or when he drained the game-winner against OKC from 40 feet out. But we're looking at the total body of work, not necessarily the most memorable.
