Video: Watch every Stephen Curry 30-foot triple in his career
The rest of the 2019-20 NBA season should have brought a fair share of cameos from Stephen Curry after returning from a four-month absence due to a broken left hand. The Golden State Warriors point man returned for one game against the Toronto Raptors but missed the next two with the flu before the season came to a halt.
With no basketball action for the past three weeks, the Warriors decided to compile 30 Curry shots from 30 feet and beyond on March 30. Take a look:

If you’ve taken the time to look at these near 10 minutes of highlights, you have likely noticed a lot of these go back to his first few years as a player.
Curry was draining 30-plus footers before it was cool to do so, punishing defenders who dared leave him with open space beyond the arc.
Some of his most memorable include a three-quarter-court heave to beat the third-quarter buzzer against the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2015 Western Conference Semifinals and a crowd-silencing pull-up triple against the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016 that won it in overtime.
Many of these shots are a player’s dream to complete a highlight reel. For Curry, he has enough to fill up an hour’s film session with them.
It has already been too long since Curry has been scorching NBA nets, but this trip to memory lane will leave fans salivating for more action, whenever the NBA season can resume.
