Warriors PG Steph Curry breaks Kemba Walker’s record for most 3-pointers in first 4 NBA games
Kemba Walker has been having an unbelievable season for the Charlotte Hornets and had been leading the NBA throughout the first four games of the 2018-19 NBA season in 3-pointers made with 21. Unfortunately for him, Golden State Warriors’ star point guard Stephen Curry broke his own record that Walker had tied for all-time 3-pointers made, making six of them against the Phoenix Suns to take his total to 22.
That fun fact was made available via a post on Reddit. Curry’s previous record came in the 2015-16 season.
Curry has already been putting together an MVP-caliber season for Golden State. He has been knocking down threes at a ridiculous pace and has been a top-notch playmaker for his teammates as well.
Needless to say, Golden State is looking like a good bet to repeat as champions once again.
Throughout the first four games of the season, Curry has averaged 30.5 points per game to go along with 7.8 assists and five rebounds. He has shot a blistering 47 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.
Golden State not only has the same “big four” back from last season, they are also awaiting the return of All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins. Curry is still the face of the franchise, although Kevin Durant has also taken some of that recognition.
Walker, on the other hand, is trying to force his way into the way-too-early MVP conversation. He has averaged 33 points per game, while also chipping in 5.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds.
It will be interesting to see if Walker can continue shooting the ball at the level he has throughout the first four games of the season.
As we all know, Curry will continue hoisting threes up at a high rate. He is continuing to prove that he is the best NBA shooter of all-time.
