Steph Curry Breaks Record with Three in 128th Straight Game


By BEN LEIBOWITZ

Stephen Curry has added yet another three-point shooting record to his résumé. The baby-faced assassin broke Kyle Korver's all-time NBA record of consecutive games played with a made three-pointer by sinking a first-quarter trey against the Orlando Magic on Feb. 25. Curry has now made at least one three in 128 straight contests.

Korver's streak of consecutive games with a make from beyond the arc ended in 2014, at 127 straight. Now Curry, the reigning league MVP, stands alone in the record books.

Dana Barros' record of 89 consecutive games with a triple was surpassed by Korver in December 2013. Barros, an unassuming 5-foot-11 guard, played 14 seasons in the NBA for the Seattle SuperSonics, Philadelphia 76ers, Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons. He made his only All-Star team in 1995, while playing for Philly, and also won the league's Most Improved Player award that year.

Perhaps what's most impressive about all three sharpshooters is their efficiency. During their three-point shooting streaks, Barros, Korver and Curry all shot better than 44 percent from downtown.

On his quest to the record, Curry has fired away more than 1,000 threes. Provided how he's playing throughout the 2015-16 campaign, this streak could grow for a long, long time.
