If you really needed more proof of Steph Curry's greatness, look no further than the numbers from the Golden State Warriors' four-game sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers.

During the series, Curry racked up 146 points, the most ever in NBA history in a four-game sweep.

He surpassed some of the best players the game has ever seen, including Shaquille O'Neal, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

What's even more impressive is the fashion in which he did it. In three of the four games, Portland held an advantage of at least 15 points, and Curry was unfazed each time.

He led both teams in scoring in each game during the series, posting four consecutive performances of 36 or more points.

He shot a hair under 47% during the series, including a 42.6% mark from three-point territory. He was equally efficient at the stripe, sinking 93.8% of his free throws.

The Warriors crushed Portland's NBA Finals aspirations in historic fashion, and it was only fitting that the franchise's star led the way with the single greatest scoring performance in a sweep in NBA history.
