Going 7-of-7 from the free-throw line against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday, Stephen Curry has taken his career free-throw percentage to 90.44%.

That mark eclipses Steve Nash's all-time record of 90.43% (3060-of-3384). Although Curry has only played 10 years in comparison to Nash's 18 seasons, making 2347 free-throws of an attempted 2595 is no small feat.

Nash is currently a player development consultant with the Golden State Warriors.

Both MVP point guards are also members of the league's exclusive 50-40-90 club. While Nash has achieved the 50-40-90 feat four times in his career (2005-06, 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10), Curry did it during his unanimous MVP campaign in 2015-16.

This season Curry is on track to be the first player to have a 50-50-90 season with shooting percentages of 51.3% from the field, 50.0% from beyond the arc and 93.8% from the free-throw line through 17 games.
