Curry's milestone bucket came against the Denver Nuggets on Monday on a layup toward the end of the first quarter. He scored 21 points in the frame, marking the 29th time Curry has registered 20 or more points in one quarter, courtesy ESPN's Nick Friedell.

Prior to Monday's contest, Curry was just 19 points away from overtaking Chamberlain on the Warriors' career scoring leaderboard.
Golden State's all-time scorers
Curry is the only player among the Warriors' top five all-time scorers not to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. However, the 33-year-old is all but certain to add that honor following his retirement.
The seven-time All-Star, two-time MVP, and three-time champion also leads Golden State all time in 3-pointers and assists. He's currently in his 12th season with the Warriors.
Chamberlain played just five-and-a-half years with the franchise, dating back to its time as the Philadelphia Warriors. However, he averaged 41.5 points during that span. That includes a 50.4 points per game average in 1961-62, which still stands as the highest scoring rate ever over an entire season.
