Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry just wrapped up one of the most dominant stretches we've ever seen from a single player.
In the month of April, the two-time MVP averaged 37.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists over the course of 15 games. He was incredibly efficient, posting shooting splits of .518/.466/.908.
Curry rewrote the history books in the process, breaking a number of records.
Let's take a closer look.
13: How many 30-point games Curry had
Curry scored 30 or more points in 13 of the 15 games he appeared in.
According to Statmuse, it's the most 30-point games a player aged 33 or older has ever had in a month, surpassing Kobe Bryant (12).

Curry made more history by scoring 30-plus points in 11 straight games, surpassing Bryant (10) once again for the longest streak ever by a player aged 33 or older.
Curry set the record in style, dropping 49 points on 10-for-17 shooting from 3-point range in a win over the Philadelphia 76ers on April 19.
It marked Curry's fifth 40-point game of the month, which - you guessed it - is the most ever by a player aged 33 or older in a month, surpassing Bryant and Michael Jordan.

96: How many 3s Curry made
It's the most 3s anyone has ever made in a calendar month.
Not only that, Curry did it with incredible efficiency, taking 13.7 3-point attempts per game and making them at a 46.6 percent clip.
Curry made 10 or more 3-pointers four times. To put into perspective how impressive that is, only five other players in NBA history have ever had multiple games in which they've made at least 10 3s. And of those players, only one of them has more career games with at least 10 3s than Curry had in the month of April.
That player? Klay Thompson, who has five such games in his career.
As for Curry, he now has 21 career games with 10-plus 3s. Yeah ... he's something else.
51.8: Curry's field goal percentage
Let's talk more about Curry's red-hot shooting.
In addition to lighting it up from 3-point range, Curry was automatic from 2-point range, converting 67.5 percent of his opportunities at the rim and 58.3 percent of his opportunities from midrange.
That contributed to Curry shooting 51.8 percent from the field.
Why is that notable? According to NBA.com, it's only the second time in NBA history that someone has averaged at least 35.0 points on 50.0 percent shooting from the field and 45.0 percent from the perimeter in a calendar month (minimum of 10 games).
The first player to do it was - who else? - Curry, when he averaged 36.7 points on 54.9 percent shooting from the field and 53.6 percent from 3-point range in February of 2016.
Players to average at least 35.0 PPG, 50 FG% and 45 3P% in a calendar month (minimum 10 games), per @EliasSports:- NBA.com/Stats (@nbastats) April 30, 2021

31.3: Curry's season scoring average
Curry entered the month of April averaging 29.1 points per game on the season. He's now up to 31.3 points per game.
In addition to being a career-high, that ties Curry with Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal for the highest scoring average in the league this season.
You know what that means - the race for the scoring title is far from over.
Curry won his first scoring title in 2015-16 with an average of 30.1 points per game. Beal is also a one-time winner, having led the league last season with 31.3 points per game.
