Stephen Curry Breaks Record

On November 7, 2016, the Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry broke the record for most three pointers made in a game. He achieved this massive feat against the New Orleans Pelicans. Just two nights before Curry went 0-10 from behind the three point line against the L.A. Lakers in a stunning loss, he snapped his streak of 157 straight games of making at least one three pointer (which he holds the record for that as well). However in the next game, Curry came back with a vengeance. Curry made thirteen three pointers out of seventeen attempts, thus breaking the previous record set by legend Kobe Bryant who had made a total of twelve three-pointers in a game. Although Curry broke the record, he has been close to beating it before. On February 27, 2016, Curry tied the record by also hitting 12 three point shots against the Oklahoma City Thunder. “I don’t overreact to games like that whether I go 0 for 10 or 2 for 12 or whatever it is,” Steph Curry said when asked about his previous performance. “My process is the same, but I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in.” As the game was coming to a close, Warriors fans were shouting “M-V-P! M-V-P!” as they knew Stephen Curry put on a show and broke the long standing NBA record.
