Stephen Curry sets new NBA three 3-point record for Warriors
In their game against the Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry continues to make history and grow his legend as the greatest shooter of all-time. Curry set a new NBA record for consecutive games with at least five three-pointers made.
Stephen Curry has a new NBA record, hitting at least five three-pointers for the seventh-straight game. The previous record of six-straight games with at least five threes was set by George McCloud during the 1995-96 season.

What makes this even more amazing is that Curry only needed a half of basketball to get the five threes needed to set the record. As of writing, Curry already has 24 points on 5-of-8 from three at halftime.
Curry has been nothing short of spectacular to start the season for the Warriors. He is currently averaging 33.7 points per game on 52.7% three-point shooting and has become on of the early favorites in the MVP race.
His absolute tear to start the season was highlighted in their game against the New York Knicks where he had 11 three-pointers en route to 51 points, all of which he accomplished in only three quarters of play. In the process of doing so, he also vaulted himself to fifth all-time in the three-pointers made list, passing Jamal Crawford.
Stephen Curry has also said that he had his best summer before this season which would probably be why he is such on a roll right now. It’s scary what this Warriors team can accomplish with a red-hot Curry given that they still have reigning back-to-back Finals MVP Kevin Durant, who is playing exceptional as well, on their roster.
And if that wasn’t enough, All-star center DeMarcus Cousins has yet to play for them as he continues to recover from an Achilles injury he suffered last year. The rest of the league surely has some catching up to do if they want to dethrone the Warriors any time soon.
