Warriors’ Stephen Curry gets one step closer to breaking his own insane 3-point record
If we still need any more proof that Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is one of the best shooters to ever play in the league then here’s another one. On Sunday night against the Sacramento Kings, Curry put himself on the record books once again by doing what he does best—connecting from deep.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, the two-time MVP is on a 128-game streak of knocking down at least one three-pointer. He’s now tied former NBA All-Star Kyle Korver for the second-longest streak in NBA history. At the top of the list, with 157 straight games of consecutively making it rain from deep, is none other than Curry himself.

Curry has been cooking to start the 2021-2022 NBA season with a bang. From knocking down logo bombs to crazy one-handed heaves, everything seems to be going in for the three-time champion this season as he continues to spearhead the attack for Golden State.
It’s been a tough past few seasons for Curry after winning three titles in a span of four seasons. After losing against the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 NBA Finals, his fifth straight appearance, the road has since been uphill for the seven-time All-Star. The shorthanded Warriors ended up with one of the worst records in the league the next season and unfortunately missed the NBA Playoffs again last season after a tough play-in tournament loss against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.
Despite all his team’s setbacks, Curry’s individual game hasn’t really slowed down. The 33-year-old bounced back last season to claim his second scoring title and, from the looks of it, he’s on a mission to keep firing from all cylinders as the Warriors try to get back to playoff contention this season.
