Jazz star Mitchell breaks one of Steph's playoff records

Warriors

Steph Curry no longer holds the record for most 3-pointers in an NBA playoff series.

That's because Donovan Mitchell made 33 3s in the Utah Jazz's first-round matchup against the Denver Nuggets, which ended in thrilling fashion Tuesday night.

The soon-to-be 24-year-old shot an insane 51.6 percent (33-for-64) from beyond the arc, but just went 2-for-8 in the Game 7 defeat.

Steph made 32 triples (on 77 attempts -- 41.5 percent) in the 2016 Western Conference finals vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder, and made 32 more (on 80 attempts -- 40 percent) against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.

The two-time NBA MVP drilled 26 3s in the 2019 Western Conference finals against the Portland Trail Blazers, and probably would have shattered his record if the series lasted six or seven games (it was a sweep).

Curry and his Splash Brother, Klay Thompson, share the record for most 3-pointers over a single postseason (98), set in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
