With Steph Curry being seven 3-pointers away from breaking Ray Allen's career regular-season record, rumors have been swirling that the Warriors would sit their superstar Monday in Indiana against the Pacers to then play Tuesday against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
It appears Curry will again chase the record on Monday night, however, and not wait for Tuesday. KRON4 News' Jason Dumas reported Sunday morning that Curry will indeed play Monday against the Pacers.
Curry has struggled from deep the last two games, going just 3-for-14 from beyond the arc Saturday night in the Warriors' 102-93 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. On Wednesday night, he made six 3-pointers but over 17 attempts, and shot just 8-for-19 overall in a sloppy win against the Portland Trail Blazers.
He has missed only one of the Warriors' 26 games played this season.
In his 25 games played this season, Curry is averaging 27.1 points per game while shooting 40.4 percent from deep.
Curry has faced the Pacers 18 times in his career. He has averaged just 20.3 points per game against them, which is his lowest against any opponent. Over those 18 games, he has shot 40.9 percent on his 3-point attempts.
