Steph Curry added another record to his résumé Monday.
The Warriors superstar became the first player in NBA history to make (at least) 200 3-pointers in seven consecutive seasons with a second-quarter triple in Golden State's authoritative win over the Indiana Pacers.
Curry's 200th 3-pointer of the season also was his fourth straight of the evening, and he finished the first half a perfect 5-for-5 from beyond the arc. He didn't miss until his seventh attempt, and ultimately finished the night with a game-high 26 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the outside.
Curry also became the first player in NBA history to make 200-plus 3-pointers in seven seasons ... period. To put things in perspective, his 1,960 3-pointers over the last seven seasons are more than all but nine players in NBA history (excluding himself). Larry Bird, widely considered to be one of the best shooters of all-time, attempted over 200 fewer 3-pointers in his entire career than Curry has made over the last seven seasons.
In fact, Bird did not make the 200th 3-pointer of his career until the 26th game of his seventh NBA season. So, the game has changed quite a bit since Larry Legend laced up his sneakers, and Curry's growing list of records make up much of the evidence.
By the time everything's said and done, those records might make up all of it.
PULLMAN, Wash. -- When Klay Thompson took the microphone for his jersey retirement ceremony at Washington State University, he spoke from the heart. No notecards, no wrinkled piece of paper. Just a smile on his face and the confident words of a man at ease, at home in Pullman.
“Hopefully I’m with the Warriors for the rest of my career, “ Klay exclaimed to a crowd of 10,380 at Beasley Coliseum, the largest crowd for a basketball game in the state of Washington since Klay’s junior year in 2011. “But I will always be a Coug.”
Klay got choked up twice -- when he mentioned his grandpa Jerry, who watched his games “sitting 12 rows up” until his death in 2017, and when he hugged his mother, Julie, after his No. 1 rose to the rafters.
He’s a natural at public speaking, despite being reluctant to take the mic or be on camera in ordinary circumstances.
“I winged it,” Klay said about his speech. “I knew Public Speaking 102 would come in handy.” He paused a beat and added, “I hated that class.”

After spending the afternoon celebrating fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson getting his collegiate jersey retired in Pullman, Washington, Warriors guard Steph Curry will be making his sideline analyst debut.
Curry will join the NBC Sports Bay Area broadcast of Saturday’s matchup between the Warriors and Orlando Magic at Chase Center, jumping on during the third quarter.
He likely won’t be talking much about Draymond Green, as the former Defensive Player of the Year will not play against Orlando after suffering a finger sprain in Thursday night’s loss to the Denver Nuggets. Rookie Eric Paschall will start in Green's place.
For the Magic, point guard Michael Carter-Williams returns after missing 13 games with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder.
