Curry scored a three-pointer for the 158th successive game, breaking his previous record of 157 which had stood since November 2016.
He made 28 points as his side overcame an eight-point deficit to win, having earlier thrown away a 16-point lead.
Rudy Gobert top-scored for the Jazz with 20 points and 19 rebounds.

After receiving the ball with 3.3 seconds left on the clock, DeRozan landed his three-point effort to cap his 28 points – one of four Bulls to reach 20 points with Zach LaVine leading on 35.

The Denver Nuggets cruised to a 124-111 win over the Houston Rockets, but the Detroit Pistons needed overtime to beat the San Antonio Spurs – a Saddiq Bey three-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining sealing a 117-116 win to end the Pistons’ four-game losing run.
