What is Steph Curry’s record for most 3-pointers made in a single game?
The Golden State Warriors will be looking to defend their NBA title but they will need Steph Curry to be at his best to have chances to lift the Championship again.
The Golden State Warriors suffered but managed to defeat the Sacramento Kings in the first-round playoff series after winning the seventh game with another exhibition from Stephen Curry, who scored 50 points.
The current NBA champions will now have the hard task of eliminating the Los Angeles Lakers, who also struggled to defeat the Memphis Grizzlies, although they did it in six games (4-2).
Golden State fans’ joy after seeing their team advance to the second round of the playoffs translated into frustration when saw Lebron James and Anthony Davis guide LA to the first win of the series at Chase Arena on Tuesday night (112-117).
Curry and Klay Thompson were the Warriors’ best players, with 27 and 21 points, respectively, but that wasn’t enough to stop Darvin Ham’s team.
Curry’s historic three-point record
Despite their loss, the Warriors are aware that they can change things up if they are inspired in the shooting department.
GS will need to bounce back from their defeat as quickly as possible if they want to advance to the next round and to do that they will need the best Steph.
Regarded as the league’s best three-point shooter, Curry has given the fans many nights of inspiration from the long distance, but probably the most iconic one was when he converted 13 three-point shots in Golden State’s 116-106 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on November 7, 2016.
Before that amazing performance, Curry had recorded a 0/10 effort on 3s against the Lakers Los Angeles three days earlier, which ended his NBA record streak of 157 consecutive games with a made three-pointer.
However, Curry set the record for the most made 3s in a single game during the 2022 All-Star Game, with 16. He ended the game with 50 points in a game where Team Lebron beat Team Durant 163-160.
