The most gifted 3-Point shooter the NBA has ever witnessed, Stephen Curry has registered an NBA record against his name by knocking 85 3-pointers in a month. As he guided the Golden State Warriors past Sacramento Kings with an elite 37-point performance, Curry collected another accolade against his name.
Stephen Curry shot 11 of 21 with seven more 3-pointers after the two-time MVP rolled his right ankle during Friday’s win against Denver but didn’t consider it serious or seem hobbled. His April total surpassed James Harden’s NBA record of 82 in November 2019.
Stephen Curry shatter 3-point record for a month
Kelly Oubre Jr.’s jumper with 1:42 left put Golden State ahead 112-111 before Richaun Holmes missed a pair of free throws at the 1:25 mark, then Draymond Green scored moments later. Golden State beat the Kings 137-106 at Chase Center on Jan. 4, but had lost four of seven in the rivalry at home.
Draymond Green had 14 rebounds and 13 assists in the Warriors’ fourth straight home win. That matches the team’s longest winning streak of the season at Chase Center, where Golden State drew 3,252 fans — up from 1,935 on Friday in the first game fans returned.
Havin said that, Klay Thompson is close to beginning to run again as he rehabs from surgery for a torn right Achilles tendon. He stayed home from the recent road trip to work with Warriors’ director of sports medicine and performance Rick Celebrini.
Coach Steve Kerr spoke to Stephen Curry’s injured Splash Brother at halftime of Friday’s game against the Nuggets on a special night with fans returning to Chase Center. Kerr sensed it was especially hard for Thompson given how badly he wanted to be out on the floor.
