Steph Curry Surpasses Dwyane Wade in Playoff Assists to Make History

Steph Curry made history as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Lakers in Game 2, showcasing his exceptional playmaking ability.

While Curry's shooting and scoring ability is often the center of attention, his playmaking skills are just as noteworthy. As the Warriors' offense relies heavily on off-ball movement, Curry's assists often do not reflect his exceptional passing ability. In Game 2 against the Lakers, Curry's increased on-ball usage allowed him to make plays for his teammates and finish with 12 assists, surpassing Dwyane Wade for sole possession of 24th all-time in playoff assists with 882 and counting.

Curry's historic achievement sheds light on his often-overlooked passing ability and his potential to climb up several statistical ranks this postseason. Already 13th all-time in playoff scoring, Curry's impressive run last year was filled with record-breaking performances, and he shows no signs of slowing down this year.

The Warriors' simple yet effective adjustment of ramping up Curry's on-ball usage proved fruitful in Game 2, and there is potential for even more. With Curry's first playoff win over LeBron James without Kevin Durant in 2,518 days, fans are eagerly awaiting what the future holds for the superstar point guard.
