Curry is currently on a streak of 11 straight 30-point games, breaking the record previously held by Kobe Bryant.

Julius Randle gets yet another boost, as he continues to propel the New York Knicks to the team’s best season in years. Starting the season at an 80 overall, Randle has seen more growth in his 2K rating than any other player.
