30 for 30? Warriors’ PG Stephen Curry Needs 30 Threes to Break Record

Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, after four 3-pointers in Wednesday’s win over New Orleans, now has 240 made 3-pointers this season. That ties him for the fifth-most in a season in NBA history with Peja Stojakovic, who finished with as many in 2003-04 with Sacramento.

In 2005-06, Ray Allen, then with Seattle, hit 269 3-pointers and set the single-season record. Curry has seven games left and needs 30 3-pointers to break that mark. That’s an average 4.3 per game, which is nearly a full 3-pointer more than what he’s averaging this season.

As you weigh whether or not he will break it, here is some interesting data.

* Curry is 122 of 266 from 3-point range at home (45.9). He is 118-263 on the road (44.9). The Warriors have four home games left and three road games.

* He is shooting 32.6 percent (48 for 147) from three against the Warriors’ remaining opponents: Phoenix (8-22), Utah (8-16), Minnesota (6-18), Oklahoma City (9-29), Lakers (8-25), San Antonio (7-17) and Portland (10-20).

* Curry has made at least 5 3-pointers in 18 games this season

* He’s had three seven-game stretches this season where he’s hit at least 30 3-pointers: 33 in a stretch bridging December and January, 30 in a stretch bridging February and March, 32 during a stretch in March.

    Does it count when they go into the playoffs as well?

  • Gummy

    I rather see him take it into the paint more

    Your math is bad on what he’s shooting…. It’s 58/147.

  • Niners in 2012

    Why? He’s the best 3pt shooter in the world, seeing him hit threes is more enjoyable than some dude hanging on the rim and screaming. Bomb away!

    the last (non-playoff) game of the year- he may be resting or maybe just shooting ten threes. -Or it may still really matter

    The Big Eucalyptus is taking charge. Blocking the other teams center’s shots- not seen since Robert Parrish was traded away. I havent seen him take a jumpshot. Cant get the pushoff? He ain’t fat,but he could lose some weight to get to his best again. Might help with his quickness.
    There’s no other big difference in talent between this team and the Curry-Monta teams. Its just that this team gets it,wants to win. And has Bogy.

    I am reading the tea leaves of the past few blogs and newspaper articles. Bottom line, do you think Coach Jackson is “teachable”? He seems to revert to his set ways (weaknesses imho), but what do you think?
