The sun came up this morning, I ate breakfast, and Steph Curry broke another NBA record. Yawn. Nothing to see here, other than most prolific shooter in NBA history.
Monday night’s game against the Pelicans was a great record setting stage for the Warriors and Steph Curry. They welcomed the worst NBA team into Oracle Arena, and from the jump fans knew this could be a special night for Curry. The former Davidson star is one of those players where you know early on in a game whether he’ll put up a huge number. If Curry hits his first few three pointers, then that usually bodes well for a record-setting night.
With 2:23 left in the fourth quarter Curry had already drained 12 three-pointers and was on the precipice of NBA history. The record for three-pointers in an NBA game was 13 held by Donyell Marshall (UConn guy, NBD). Curry came off a screen at the top of the key and put up one of the those classic fade-away three’s for which he’s not famous for. Nothing but the bottom of the net and Curry now holds yet another NBA record.
