Dubs By the Numbers: All-Star Break Storylines

Warriors Have Played League-High 37 'Clutch Time' Games, Curry Leads in Multiple Clutch Stats

The Warriors won eight of their last 10 games heading into the All-Star break, capped by their highest-scoring regulation game all season, a 140-137 victory over the Utah Jazz that gave Head Coach Steve Kerr his 500th career coaching win. The Dubs are a game over .500 (27-26) and 10th place in a crowded Western Conference postseason race. They are five games behind the New Orleans Pelicans for sixth place — first through sixth place are guaranteed a playoff spot, while seventh through 10th place will participate in the NBA's Play-In Tournament to decide the remaining two seeds.

There are countless storylines surrounding the team this season, including their league-leading 37 'clutch time' games played, Stephen Curry making a compelling case for the league's second-ever Clutch Player of the Year award, Jonathan Kuminga's ascension and the all-around impact of Rising Star rookie Brandin Podziemski.

The Warriors have played a league-leading 37 'clutch time' games, with the game's margin within five points in the final five minutes. They are tied with the Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks for the most clutch wins (18), but only the Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors have more clutch losses (20) than the Warriors (19). The Dubs and Raptors have the most losses in games decided by three points or fewer (9).


Curry leads the NBA in total points (165), made field goals (51) and made 3-pointers (28) in the clutch this season. Curry is 57 points ahead of second-place Demar Derozan, 16 made field goals ahead of second-place Mikal Bridges and 18 made 3-pointers ahead of a three-way tie for second place. Last season's leader in clutch points (194) and made field goals (72), De'Aaron Fox, was named the NBA's inaugural Clutch Player of the Year. With 29 games remaining in the Warriors' season and Curry averaging 5.0 points in the clutch, the Warriors' closer is on pace to eclipse Fox's 2022-23 totals in both categories while having already made the most clutch threes in a single season in NBA history.

Curry's Game Winner


Curry leads the league in total made 3-pointers (252) and made 3-pointers per game (5.0). No other player this season has cracked 200 made threes or even made four 3-pointers per game. Curry has now eclipsed 250 made threes in a season 10 times. Collectively, the Warriors are second in the league, making 15.1 3-pointers per game.


Draymond Green is shooting a career-high 42.1 percent from behind the arc this season, tying Stephen Curry for best on the team. Green joins Sacramento's Domanatas Sabonis as the only players averaging at least six rebounds (Green 6.7 RPG, Sabonis 13.2 RPG) and six assists per game (Green 6.1 APG, Sabonis 8.3 RPG) that are also shooting over 50 percent from the field (Green 51.1 FG%, Sabonis 62.2 FG%) and 40 percent from three (Green 42.1 3PT%, Sabonis 42.6 3PT%). Green has played in 29 of the Warriors' 53 games this season and the Dubs are 16-13 with him in the lineup.


Rookie guard Brandin Podziemski, who represented the Warriors in Friday's Rising Stars game, leads the NBA in drawn charges (27). Podziemski has been an impactful all-around rookie for the Dubs, leading all rookies in games with 10-plus points, 5-plus rebounds and 5-plus assists (14). He has more such games than second place (Victor Wembenyama) and third place (Chet Holmgren) combined (13).

Jonathan Kuminga is amidst a career-long streak of 33 consecutive games scoring in double figures. Kuminga is averaging 18.1 points over that extended stretch on 56.9 percent from the field. He scored at least 20 points in 12 of those contests.


Klay Thompson scored a season-high 35 points last Thursday in his first game off the bench since 2012. Thompson also became the sixth Warrior to eclipse 15,000 career points, joining Stephen Curry, Wilt Chamberlain, Rick Barry, Paul Arizin and Chris Mullin. Among active players, Thompson ranks 20th in total points scored.

Head Coach Steve Kerr became the second coach in Warriors history to win 500 career regular season games last Thursday. Kerr accomplished this feat in the fifth-fewest games of any coach in NBA history (764) behind only Phil Jackson (682), Pat Riley (684), K.C. Jones (731) and Gregg Popovich (745).
