Curry, early in the Warriors’ matchup with the Grizzlies in their regular season finale at the Chase Center, officially secured the scoring title with a baseline floater over Memphis center Jonas Valanciunas.
Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal came in second after he put up 25 points in their 115-110 win against the Charlotte Hornets earlier on Sunday. Beal, 27, finished the season averaging a career-high 31.4 points per game.
Curry entered Sunday’s game averaging a career-high 31.8 points per game.
The 33-year-old is now the first player to earn the scoring title at his age or older since Michael Jordan did so during the 1997-98 season, when he averaged 28.7 points per game at 35. Curry also hit several other statistical milestones this season, including becoming the Warriors’ all-time scoring and assists leader and hitting a record 96 3-pointers in a single month.
The Warriors have secured a spot in the NBA’s new postseason play-in, though could compete as either the eighth or ninth seed on Wednesday night.
