OAKLAND – Warriors guard Stephen Curry extends his single-season record with every 3-pointer he makes for the rest of the season, and after passing 300, he is on pace to reach the 400 mark.
“It’s pretty crazy,” Curry said. “I’m going to say probably the exact same thing I said two years ago about 300. It sounds ludicrous, and it sounds far-fetched, but I’m going to keep the same focus in how I’ve been playing all year. And if it happens, that’d be amazing. But I’m not going out there chucking just to get to 400. That’s not a focus of mine at all. I’ve just got to continue to just play the way I’ve been playing.”
Curry has 301 3-pointers this season and averages 5.1 per game with 20 games left. He smashed his previous record of 286 last season.
“It’s pretty mind-boggling just the fact that he beat his own record and we’ve still got 20 games left,” backcourt mate Klay Thompson said. “He’s got 300. That’s insane. The man is single-handedly kind of changing the game with the way we see it….It motivates me. One day I want to get to 300.”
“I thought last year with Steph that was the ceiling, but obviously with his hard work, his dedication he proved everybody wrong. I couldn’t imagine hitting 300, so it’s pretty amazing.”
