Steph Curry says there still is one thing he has to do to be the greatest shooter of all time. Being humble is great in all, but let's be real: When it comes to shooting the rock, Curry's in a league of his own.
The Warriors superstar proved that to be true yet again Wednesday night in Golden State's 147-109 blowout win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Curry continued his dominant run, finishing the night with 42 points in just 29 minutes played. He also made 11 3-pointers and had to be playfully held back by coach Steve Kerr in stopping Curry from attempting to break Klay Thompson's record of 14 3s in a game.
Curry now has made 29 3-pointers over his last three games. That's the most ever in NBA history, and to further prove his greatness, No. 30 has the first, second and third-most 3s made over a three-game span ever.
The sharpshooter caught fire in the third quarter, reaching absolute perfection in the stanza. Over a span of 11 minutes and 28 seconds, Curry didn't miss. Not once.
He scored 25 points on 8-of-8 shooting from the field, including 6-of-6 from deep and 3-of-3 from the free-throw line.
“Felt like I couldn’t miss,” Curry said after the win.
Curry's night was filled with fodder for stat geeks, as he continues to break the Warriors' record book. He scored 30 points for the eighth straight game, had his 30th career 20-point quarter and became the first player in NBA history to have multiple streaks of making at least 10 3s in a game.
Keep that Humble Pie, Curry. The numbers will do the talking for you -- the G.O.A.T. shooter is as obvious as ever.
