Even if you don’t follow the NBA, I’m sure you have heard the name Stephen Curry around various news outlets. The man is often worldly and for a lack of a better term: a god. We are currently in a time of NBA reinvention, these moments watching Curry play will be looked on for hundreds of years for his outstanding play. Let’s take a closer look into his mind-boggling play as of lately.
Stephen Curry has always been known as a three-point specialist and last year he managed to break the NBA single season record of three-pointers made with 286. This year is a totally different story with Curry breaking his own record by netting 12 three-pointers (on 75% shooting) including a buzz-beater three to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in overtime to bring his current record to an amazing 288 three-pointers made.
What really is astounding is that on top of breaking his own record for three-pointers a second time, this is his third time breaking the record, which means Curry holds the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd spot for three-pointers made in a season.
On top of that the 12 three-pointers made versus the Thunder match the NBA record of most three-pointers made in a game. And to finally sweeten the pot with the win over the Thunder the Golden State Warriors also clinched a playoff spot, meaning if they were to lose the rest of the 24 games in the season they would still make the playoffs.
So what do you think? Are Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors a one time hit? Is it possible for Curry to maintain this godly level of play? Let us know in the comments below!
