On route to yet another MVP-calibre season, Stephen Curry has racked up some phenomenal statistics.

In 2015-16 alone, the Golden State Warriors star has 2,128 points, 154 steals and a staggering 356 made three-point shots.

On Tuesday night, though, Curry treated fans to an altogether rarer sight as he dribbled the length of the court before throwing down a fairly impressive dunk during the Dubs' 102-94 win over the Washington Wizards. Scroll down this article to see the reigning MVP in full flight.

Curry's dunk came in the latter stages of the first quarter:

A one-handed transition slam? Not bad at all from the 'small' point guard. It might not be Aaron Gordon Dunk Contest worthy, but, considering Curry already gives opponents nightmares with the rest of his game, reminding them he can dunk too is a little unfair.

According to ESPN, the slam against the Wizards was just the 21st of Curry's NBA career. That isn't altogether surprising considering the Dubs star's relatively small stature and the fact that he is virtually money from as far as half court. There aren't too many occasions when he has to rise to the rim.

Considering, though, that just moments before, Washington's John Wall had chased back for a huge block as Curry looked to be set for the easy lay-up, maybe he thought he couldn't leave anything to chance on Tuesday.

On the night as a whole, Curry finished with 26 points, seven assists and seven rebounds.

While two of those points came in beating out Garrett Temple for the dunk, it was his lethal shooting from beyond the arc that made up the up the majority of his scoring - the 28-year-old was good for 6-of-8 from three-point range as he put on another shooting clinic.

The norm

The worrying thing for Curry's future opponents, both in the remainder of the regular season and in the upcoming playoffs, is that his all-round exploits against Washington have become standard fare as the season has progressed.

With the Warriors just seven wins away from creating NBA history by recording the best ever regular season record, Curry has somehow improved upon a 2014-15 campaign that saw him named the league's MVP for the first time.

In 71 games this season, he is averaging a league-high 31.8 points - over five points more than he did last year. Having apparently added dunking to his repertoire, the sky really is the limit for the new face of the league.
