Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been breaking NBA records left and right in this month of April, and he just did it again. This time, he broke the record for most made threes in a calendar month—after reaching the number of 85 threes in a game against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night.
In the game, Curry led his Warriors to a 117-113 victory while knocking down seven three-pointers in the process. Warriors fans were over the moon, chanting “MVP” for their beloved star who’s already won the aforementioned award twice in the past.
The previous holder of the record was James Harden, who made 82 threes in November of 2019 while he was still on the Houston Rockets. Now, however, the record belongs to the man who most agree is the greatest shooter of all time.
After the game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr had this to say about Curry: “It seems like I’ve run out of ways to describe Steph’s play,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “I’m just going to stop trying.”
When Curry himself was asked how he’s able to tap into the zone so easily, he said: “It’s just trying to get a decent look, get your feet underneath you, and then the rest is muscle memory, confidence, and just creativity, so just trying to be in the moment as much as possible.”
Curry is averaging an astonishing 38.2 points per game this month.
