Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry already broke the record for the most three-pointers in a season Feb. 27, but he reached another milestone by recording his 300th make from downtown in a 119-113 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday, per the Warriors.

After breaking his own record, Curry also tied the NBA single-game record with 12 three-pointers in an overtime win against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Feb. 27. He now owns the top three seasons in NBA history in terms of three-pointers made:

Despite losing Sunday to the Los Angeles Lakers—who had only 12 wins—Golden State is on pace to break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' record of 72 wins in a season thanks in large part to Curry. The 2014-15 NBA MVP was averaging a league-high 30.5 points to go along with 6.6 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game heading into Monday night's contest.

Some retired NBA greats have criticized Curry for being one-dimensional and relying on the three-point shot, and Bernie Lincicome of the Chicago Tribune even went as far as calling Curry "a disease."

The criticism has not fazed the 27-year-old, who is not afraid to let it fly from deep. Curry connected on seven of 13 three-pointers and finished with 41 points Monday. He was 14-of-24 from the field and grabbed 13 rebounds to go with four steals and three assists. The Warriors have the best record in the NBA at 56-6, and there is no reason for him to curtail his long-range shooting.

Judging by his recent performances, it appears he has no plans to do so.
