The NBA season isn't quite halfway done, and NBA history is being made. Here's a look at five recent milestones or historical feats that have occurred in the NBA games.

Stephen Curry's 15,000th-point

On Monday night, Golden State Warriors' star Stephen Curry achieved his 15,000th point in a win over the Grizzlies. It's no surprise; it came on one of his trademark three-pointers. Teammate Klay Thompson believes Steph has 15K more in him too.

James Harden's record 50-point triple-double

Harden recorded his fourth career 50-point triple-double last week. That moved him ahead of Russell Westbrook to become the NBA's all-time leader for 50-point triple-doubles. Only two other players besides Russ and Harden have multiple triple-doubles in NBA history: Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor.
