Stephen Curry sets NBA record with 13 three-pointers in one game
Is there anything Stephen Curry can't do?
Quickly, Curry's list of achievements are blossoming: he's currently the two-time reigning MVP, just recently hit 402 three-pointers in a single season, and is an NBA Champion. However, he'll need to add a little extra space on the mantle as Stephen knocked down an astounding 13 three-pointers in last night's game against the New Orleans Pelicans, a new NBA record.
The 13 three-pointer mark is a step up from the previous record of 12, which was shared by Kobe Bryant, Donyell Marshall, and, of course, Stephen.
Heading into the fourth quarter, Stephen was sitting at just 9 made three-pointers and resting as the Golden State Warriors tried to finish off one of the NBA's worst teams. On most nights, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and others would've run the 0-7 Pelicans off the floor, meaning that Stephen wouldn't need to play again. However, on this night, the Pelicans stayed alive through the hot shooting of Anthony Davis and we all were treated to the performance of a lifetime.
On the heels of Stephen's recent commercial with our friends at Under Armor, Stephen is all about making that old. Literally just days ago, Stephen's fantastic streak of 157 games straight with a made three-pointer ended -- so how would he respond the very next game?
By setting a new NBA record for three-pointers in a single game -- OK, sure, why not?
According to a post-game quote, Davis could only say one thing:
"Nothing you can do about it. He was being Steph."
We couldn't have said it any better ourselves.
