vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

The point guard really rubber-stamped his MVP-calibre season with this incredible performance in the overtime thriller against Western Conference rivals the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Way before their mammoth conference finals clash, the Warriors travelled to the Chesapeake Energy Arena for a regular season game in February.

The two-time MVP matched Kobe Bryant's record for three-pointers in a single game as he nailed 12 of his 16 attempts on his way to 46 points.

After Russell Westbrook landed on his knee, Curry fought back and won the game with a deep buzzer-beater in OT. He also had six assists and two steals.

The 28-year-old's scoring was sometimes superhuman as he won the scoring title for the first time in his career with an average of 30.1 points per night. However, this game against Paul George and the Indiana Pacers saw Curry use his full repertoire of skills.

As Steve Kerr returned to the bench following his early-season absence, the now-three-time All-Star produced a stunning performance to end with a triple-double as he pulled down ten boards and provided 12 assists.

In one of only two TDs of the season, he shot 8-15 from the field as he ended the 12-point win with 39 points to his name.

vs. New Orleans Pelicans

In the opening week of the season, Curry was on a mission to ensure the league did not forget who the MVP was and the New Orleans Pelicans were the unlucky franchise who had to witness his brilliance.

Having already dropped 40 on the Pelicans on opening night, he went to the Smoothie King Center and produced his highest scoring performance of the campaign in either regular season or playoff basketball.

The number 30 had an amazing 28 points in the third quarter and was a perfect 11/11 from the charity stripe. A 57.1 shooting percentage from three-point land was accompanied by four steals and nine assists.

vs. Portland Trail Blazers

After suffering from two separate injuries in the playoff series win over the Houston Rockets, the 2016 steal leader put his demons to bed with an incredible record-setting performance in game four of their playoff series with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Having missed the first three game of the conference semi-finals, Curry returned as a bench player but saw his minutes extended once Shaun Livingston fouled out.

He only had 11 points in the first half and was on 23 by the end of the fourth but an NBA-record 17 in overtime saw him stun the crowd into silence at the Moda Center all but book Golden State's place in the conference finals.
