Stephen Curry set yet another mark this season as the Golden State Warriors beat the Orlando Magic 130-114 for the best 57-game start to an NBA campaign.

The 27-year-old scored a three-pointer in a record 128th consecutive game on his way to notching more than 50 points for the third time this season.

He surpassed Kyle Korver’s mark of 127 straight games scoring a three-pointer.

The Warriors have won 52 games and lost five – Chicago Bulls hold the season record of 72-10 in 1995-96.

Curry scored 40 points in the first match of the season – the most points by a reigning MVP in an opener since 1972 when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar scored 41 for the Milwaukee Bucks.

He also became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989-90 to score 118 points in the first three games of the campaign.
