With his first bucket Friday night against the Charlotte Hornets at Chase Center, Curry notched his 6,000th career regular season field goal.
While 6,000 is a lot, Curry remains behind Chris Mullin (6,150), Rick Barry (6,466) and Wilt Chamberlain (7,216) for the most in franchise history.

With his first basket of the night, Stephen Curry becomes the fourth player in franchise history with 6,000 career made field goals, joining Wilt Chamberlain (7,216), Rick Barry (6,466) and Chris Mullin (6,150).
Curry made 5-of-9 from the field in the first half for 13 points Friday, helping the Warriors take a 66-51 lead over the Hornets into halftime.
Needing just over 1,200 field goals to pass Chamberlain, Curry should get there early in the 2021-22 NBA season, assuming he stays healthy.
Curry also is closing in on franchise records for most career points and assists. He should pass Chamberlain in points (17,783) and Guy Rodgers in assists (4,855) in the coming weeks.
Mullin holds the franchise record for most steals (1,360) and Curry (1,244) could get there in the next season or two.
When it’s all said and done, Curry will own all the records and go down as the greatest player to put on a Warriors uniform.
