Steph Curry and Clay Thompson push each other to be great.
So it should come as no surprise that Curry wants the 3-point record for one game returned to him.
Thompson, who has not played in the 2019 NBA Finals, currently holds the record for 14 3-pointers with the Chicago Bulls on October 29, 2018.
Curry had a chance to record a Warriors 147-109 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night, but with his team in cruise control, the reigning 3-point winner did not give up on the court in the fourth quarter.
Instead, Curry had to settle for 11 3-points in a 42-point performance.

“Absolutely. I was kind of joking with some of the guys tonight because I remember Chicago and he did it in three-quarters, and I was like, an evening like tonight, where I really did it in the third … two things,” Carrie said. video conferencing time. “First, his 37-point quarter is even crazier because I was 25 [in the third quarter] tonight and I just thought I was invincible there and this guy had 12 more points at the same time. So that was crazy. And the 14 3. I was 11 and I felt like I couldn’t miss it. I think it can be fixed, but we’ll see. “
Curry is in the middle of one of the best stretches in his embellished career. In seven games in April, he averaged 39.85 points and made 47 of his 94 attempts with 3 points (50 percent).
Curry’s high three-point career was 13 against the New Orleans Pelicans on November 7, 2016. This is the brand that Thompson broke two years later. Wednesday’s performance was Carrie’s 19th game with 10 or more 3-points. No one is even close.

If anyone has the ability to make 15 3-pointers in a game, it’s Curry, and the way Curry shoots the ball right now wouldn’t be surprising if he comes out for 15 threes in an upcoming game and grabs back a record from his Splash Brother.
