Many Stephen Curry fans suffered a tough loss on Nov. 4, not only with the 20-point loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, but because Friday marked the end of the point guard’s consecutive 3-pointer streak of 157 uninterrupted games with at least one triple-digit shot. He’s held that record since November 2013.
Curry decided to start a new stretch with an outstanding 13 3-pointers against the New Orleans Pelicans to set an NBA record. He flirted with breaking this stat two times before, which was only done by two other players in the league; Donyell Marshall in March of 2005 and Kobe Bryant in January 2003. Curry not only had pinpoint precision from behind the arc, but he also racked up five rebounds, five assists, and two steals while recording 46 points.
“I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in,” Curry said when asked about his preparation for the game. No. 30 had an amazing season although the main goal of getting the championship was not achieved. He was able to break multiple records, many held by the man himself. He now sets himself up with another record to break and begin a new 3-point streak.
