The two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry set a new NBA record for most three-pointers made in a regular season game. As he reckoned 13 in the Golden State Warriors’ 116-106 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday Night.
“This was a special night,” Curry said.
Curry shot 13 out of 17 from the three-point line and scored a season-high 46 points, three days after his league-record streak of 157 games with at least one triple ended, when he went 0-for-10 from beyond the arc in a 117-97 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

“I was hard on myself in practice the last two days. I had pretty good shooting sessions,” he said. “I don’t overreact to games like that whether I go 0-for-10 or 2-for-12 or whatever it is. My process is the same, but I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in.”
Curry previously shared the record of 12 made triples with Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.
Bryant buried 12 three-pointers in a game back in 2003 with the Lakers, while Marshall followed suit in 2005 with the Toronto Raptors.
Curry shot 76% from three-point range, the rest of the Warriors went just 3-for-18 from beyond the arc. Klay Thompson was 2-for-7, Kevin Durant was 1-for-4, and Andre Iguodala was 0-for-4. Thompson finished with 24 points for the Warriors, and Durant added 22. Davis led the Pelicans with 33 points.
