Steph Curry is not of this earth.

After missing five straight games in mid-March with a sore tailbone, the 33-year-old has played like a man possessed, dropping 30 points or more in each of his last nine contests.

Ahead of Saturday's meeting between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics, here's a look at nine standout statistics from Curry's nine-game streak:

1: Curry's 53-point display in a 116-107 win over the Denver Nuggets made the Warriors talisman the first player in league history with three 50-point games in a season at age 32 or older.

2: With 10-plus made 3-pointers in consecutive games against the Nuggets and the Oklahoma City Thunder, Curry became the first player in NBA history to record two successive performances with at least 10 made threes. He now has 20 such outings for his career - a league record.

9: Nine straight games recording 30 points or more make Curry the first Warriors player to hit that mark since Rick Barry did so during the 1966-67 season. Wilt Chamberlain holds the NBA record with a ridiculous 65.

15.9: Curry is averaging an astounding 15.9 third-quarter points during his torrid nine-game run.

29: Over a five-day stretch featuring games against the Houston Rockets, Nuggets, and Thunder, the Davidson product sank 29 3-pointers, breaking his own NBA mark for made triples in a three-game span.

30.7: Curry is now averaging 30.7 points for the season, just 0.4 back of Bradley Beal for tops in the league. Curry could become just the second player 33 or older to average 30 points or more in a season, joining Michael Jordan.

54.9: Curry is shooting 54.9% from the field during his streak, a significant boost on his career mark of 47.7%. He's also shooting 47% from behind the arc, a decent improvement on the 43.4% clip he's averaged over 12 NBA seasons.

344: Curry now has 344 points in the last nine games (38.2 PPG), the highest haul over a span of that length for a player 33 or older in NBA history.

17,784: Curry's 53-point outburst against the Nuggets was notable in itself, but it also saw the seven-time All-Star pass Chamberlain for most points in Warriors franchise history with 17,784. Curry is now the Warriors' all-time leader in points, assists, and steals.
