(CTN News) – In a thrilling 124-120 victory Warriors against the Brooklyn Nets, Steph Curry once again made his mark in NBA history by becoming the first player to reach 3,500 three-pointers.
This incredible achievement comes just a year after he claimed the league’s three-point record. Curry’s exceptional performance included a remarkable fourth-quarter display where he scored 16 of his 37 points, ultimately securing the Warriors’ win and improving their season record to 11-14.
Steve Kerr, the head coach of the Warriors,
Expressed his admiration for Curry’s skills, stating, “Steph was outstanding in the final stretch.
It was truly unbelievable. We have witnessed him do this time and time again, yet I am always amazed by what he is capable of.”
Curry made history by sinking his 3,500th three-pointer during the first quarter, setting the tone for the game as the Warriors gained an early advantage.
Additionally, Klay Thompson climbed to ninth place on the all-time three-point list during the third quarter, surpassing Jason Terry’s record of 2,282.
Despite an impressive performance from the Nets, led by Cam Thomas’ remarkable 41 points, the Warriors encountered difficulties as they played without Draymond Green, who was indefinitely suspended following an on-court altercation.
However, Curry stepped up in the fourth quarter, scoring 12 consecutive points and securing a much-needed victory.
When reflecting on his mindset during the crucial moments of the game, Curry stated, “I focused on being aggressive and attacking the gaps as much as possible.
I consistently support the shots I take each evening, and this evening they found their mark.
The win against the Nets ended a three-game losing streak for the Warriors, who have now triumphed in their last five home games.
With their attention now turned to the next challenge, the Warriors are prepared to face the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday, while the Nets are scheduled to take on the Utah Jazz on Monday.
Curry acknowledged the discussions and distractions surrounding the team, saying, “There has been a lot of conversations and noise surrounding us.
We had a meeting the day before the LA [Clippers] game [on Friday], which was important for us to come together, understand our situation, and express our feelings.”
