Super Basketball League: Stephen Curry, who is already the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-point field goals made, broke new ground Tuesday night when he hit his 3,000th career 3-pointer.
With a jumper over Denver Nuggets playmaker Facundo Campazzo to end the third quarter, the Golden State Warriors guard became the first player in NBA history to make 3,000 successful 3-point shots.
Curry also matched his own record of hitting at least one 3-pointer in 157 consecutive games. From November 13, 2014, until November 3, 2016, he had a winning streak. On December 1, 2018, the current streak began.
The two-time MVP remarked, “It was amazing to attain that milestone.” “It’s a truly remarkable achievement. It’s a strange concept to consider that for the rest of my career, I’m very sure every three records I produce will be new records, so I’m just going to enjoy it.”
It comes just two weeks after Curry broke Ray Allen’s record for most 3-pointers in the NBA. Curry was asked after Tuesday’s game if he has a clear goal in mind for the rest of his career, but he says he isn’t thinking about it in that sense.
He continued, “It’s the same thing when I hit 400 in a season.” “You don’t place any restrictions on what can happen; you simply hoop and have fun and see what happens when it’s all said and done.”
Curry’s five 3-pointers and 23 points were not enough to lift the Warriors to victory, as the Nuggets defeated the Warriors 89-86 at Chase Center. After falling behind by as many as 23 points in the first quarter, the Dubs suffered the price for their poor start.
