Entering the Warriors' game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Nov. 7, 2016, Steph Curry had made double-digit 3-pointers in a single game six separate times, including tying the then-NBA record of 12 on one occasion. He also was coming off his first game in nearly two full seasons without a single made 3-pointer, having gone 0-for-10 from long distance against the Los Angeles Lakers three nights earlier.

So when Curry went off for a new record of 13 treys against the Pelicans that night, Warriors coach Steve Kerr didn't see it as pure coincidence. Quite the opposite, actually.

"He came from a really tough night at Staples," Kerr told the Mercury News' Wes Goldberg about what he remembered from Curry's record-setting performance. "So, if you know Steph, you can sometimes get a feel for when he’s going to explode. That night, we kind of expected that, knowing how competitive he is. So, it wasn’t really a surprise. He got out to a great start and just got rolling."

Warriors and NBA fans will get another chance to watch Curry rain down 13 threes Friday night when the Warriors-Pelicans game is re-aired on NBC Sports Bay Area at 8 p.m. In Kerr's opinion, it exemplified what has allowed the two-time NBA MVP to be so successful. 

"To me, that game defines Steph as a competitor more than as a shooter because of the 0-for-10 game, the lead-up, having three days off, getting the technical [when he complained about a non-call on Anthony Davis]. All of that makes so much sense knowing Steph as well as I do because he’s a fierce, fierce competitor. I think the 13 threes and the record were a direct result from the 0-for-10 night and his response to that."

Curry never has topped the 13 treys he made that night, and held that record for almost two full years until his fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson one-upped him with 14 on Oct. 29, 2018.

You'll probably get another chance to re-watch that one, too.
