Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry missed all four of his three-point attempts in the first half of Wednesday's 127-107 win over the Dallas Mavericks, thus ending his 36-game streak with at least one three-pointer made before halftime, per ESPN Stats & Info.
Naturally, Curry then sunk all three of his shots from beyond the arc during the third quarter, helping the Warriors extend a 56-48 halftime lead to 95-77 by the start of the final quarter.
The Mavericks did put up more of a fight than most opponents manage at Oracle Arena despite playing without star forward Dirk Nowitzki, who was held out to rest in the second game of a back-to-back, per Earl K. Sneed of the Mavericks' official website.
Per ESPN Stats & Info, Curry's ongoing streak of 117 straight games with at least one three-pointer made is the second longest in NBA history, trailing only the 127-game streak Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver had from Nov. 2012 to March 2014.
Of course, even with his solid performance in the second half, Curry still finished Wednesday's contest with one of his least impressive stat lines of the season, posting 14 points, two rebounds, nine assists, three steals and a block and in 32 minutes, though it is worth noting he only attempted 11 field goals.
With Curry taking it a bit easy for the night, fellow Warriors guard Klay Thompson stepped up for 45 points in a lights-out shooting performance, making 14 of his 20 field-goal attempts, seven of his 12 three-point attempts and all 10 of his free throws.
