Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry has admitted that he would like to break the single-game record for three-pointer in a game that is being held by his teammate Klay Thompson. In October 2018, Thompson hit 14 three-pointers in a game to overtook the single-game record from Curry, who hit 13 three-pointers in November 2016.
Curry made 11 three-pointers on Wednesday night and the Warriors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 147-109. "Absolutely," Curry said after scoring 42 points during Wednesday's 147-109 win over the Thunder in Oklahoma City.
"I was kind of joking with some of the guys tonight because I remember Chicago, and he did it in three quarters," Curry said of Thompson's record 14 treys. "His 37-point quarter was even crazier, because I had 25 tonight and it just seemed like I was invincible out there; this dude had 12 more points in the same amount of time, so that was crazy in and of itself.
"And then the 14 3s. I had 11; I felt like I couldn't miss. I think it's gettable, but we'll see."
Curry impressed his coach
"It seems like every night, even though I say nothing surprises me, I'm still in awe of the shot-making," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
"It's just incredible, the level of confidence and skill is just stunning. It's beautiful to watch. It's a man at the peak of his powers with a lifetime of training and work, and not just on his body, but on his mind.
This is a guy who is functioning at a level that very few human beings ever function at in their particular field. It's just beautiful to watch." Curry has been absolutely impressive since returning from an injury.
"[The injury] might have maybe focused [me] a little more," Curry said. "Because it kept me more alert at the beginning trying to manage the game and understand that I would try not to fall on it as much. And then, as I've gotten more comfortable, just found a really good rhythm.
"I think the work that goes in behind the scenes of trying to get ready for every game, trying to get your body and your mind ready to play, coming off an injury like that has helped. So, never too high, never too low, but I feel really good right now."
