Golden State's "Splash Brothers," Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, set a new NBA record Thursday, becoming the first teammates to each make a three-pointer in 30 consecutive games. The record was achieved in stylish fashion, as the Splash Brothers combined for 56 points and went 7-of-12 from three-point range in Thursday's 102-87 win over the Chicago Bulls.
Curry and Thompson are familiar with the record books, after smashing the NBA's single-season record for three-pointers by a pair of teammates in 2012-13. The Splash Bros. combined for an incredible 483 treys last season, easily surpassing the previous record of 435, set by Orlando's Nick Anderson and Dennis Scott during the 1995-96 campaign.
If they aren't already, it's only a matter of time before Thompson and Curry are viewed as the best shooting backcourt in NBA history. They're arguably the top two shooters in the league right now, with Curry already garnering hype as potentially the best shooter in NBA history.
As the Splash Bros. continue to take aim at opposing baskets, more records will certainly fall, and last season's mark of 483 three-pointers could be the first. Curry and Thompson are on pace for a combined 483.8 treys this season, giving them a solid shot to best their own record.
