Stop the presses. The Warriors set another franchise record.
It seems like an everyday occurrence at this point.
Golden State was manhandled in its final game of the regular season Wednesday, but not before making history with its fourth 3-pointer of the evening.
Jacob Evans' trey with 2:12 remaining in the first quarter of the Warriors' eventual loss to the Grizzlies marked their 1,078th 3-pointer of the season, eclipsing the previous franchise record of 1,077 set in the 2015-16 season.
The Warriors didn't lead the NBA in 3-pointers this season. Not even close, actually. Their season total of 1,087 made threes ranked eight in the league, well behind Houston (1,323) in first. Although, that was on 897 fewer attempts than the Rockets.
Golden State did, however, have two players who combined for more 3-pointers than any other two teammates this season. With Klay Thompson's three treys in the regular-season finale, he and Steph Curry combined for 595 3-pointers this season on 1,409 attempts. Believe it or not, that was one -- one -- 3-pointer more than the 594 that Houston guards James Harden and Eric Gordon combined for on 1,628 attempts.
So, yes, the Warriors still have the best shooting backcourt in the league (if not NBA history). Not that there was ever really any doubt about that.
