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:
|Most Threes in an NBA Season|
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.
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.
