Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry set record for most three-pointers made in a month as he has currently 85 threes this month. On Sunday night against the Sacramento Kings, Curry hit seven threes to break the record that was held by James Harden.
In 2019, Harden hit 82 threes in a month. Asked what is going through his head when he is on this type of shooting streak, Curry replied: "When you're in this type of rhythm, nothing." "It's the best way to explain it," he continued, per ESPN.
"It's just trying to get a decent look, get your feet underneath you, and then the rest is muscle memory, confidence and just creativity, so just trying to be in the moment as much as possible. When you're missing, that's when you start thinking about mechanics, you start thinking about other stuff, those thoughts creep in your head.
But when you're in a flow, in rhythm, there is not much going on upstairs. It's nice."
Curry inspiring his teammates to play better
The Warriors have won seven of their past nine games and as a team they have been playing much better.
"If it doesn't, you should probably hang them up," Green said. "Because you're probably a little soft and it probably don't matter enough to you. And in order to win in this league, it has to matter.
So when you got a guy playing like that, you owe it to him to give it everything that you got in order to help win these basketball games." Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was a bit lost for words after Curry's latest performance.
"It seems like I've run out of ways to describe Steph's play," Kerr said. "I'm just going to stop trying. I'll ask you to go back three or four games ago, look at my comments then and use those tonight again.
... I don't know what else to say. The shot-making is just unbelievable and mind-boggling, but I've used those phrases already. But I know you got to keep asking -- as long as he keeps playing like that, you got to keep asking, I got to keep answering."
"Incredible, man," Green said of Curry's run. "The rim is about the size of an ocean, literally. A couple of those ones he hit tonight, it's incredible. The way he's leading us, it's been incredible to watch.
His scoring is just a byproduct of that -- the leadership, the demeanor that he's taking on the floor each and every night to give guys, the example that he's setting."
