If you didn't know by now, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry can shoot the ball.

He set an NBA record Saturday with his seventh game this season with at least eight made three-pointers in a 128-116 victory over the Sacramento Kings, per GSWStats.

The 2014-15 MVP finished the night 8-of-14 from downtown, scoring a game-high 38 points. Three of them came while his younger brother Seth tried guarding him to no avail:

By now, it's no secret that Curry is one of the best players—if not the bestin the NBA. He helped lead his team to an NBA-record 24 straight wins to start the season and was No. 1 in the league in scoring heading into Saturday's contest with an average of 29.2 points per game.

In addition, he's second on the team with 6.4 assists per game while chipping in 5.3 rebounds per contest.

The defending champion Warriors are 35-2 and lost one of their games with Curry on the bench after suffering a leg injury. He's playing through the injury, which doesn't seem to be bothering him.

It doesn't seem as though there is much anyone can do to stop Curry, especially when he hits step-back jumpers like this one, which leave even star players like DeMarcus Cousins shaking their heads:

Curry will have a chance to add to his record Monday, when the Warriors host Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat.
