Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has continued his red-hot April by drilling his 83rd triple of the month during Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings and has thus passed James Harden's mark for the most three-pointers in a single month.
“It was a great run,” Curry said on the heels of a rough shooting night (7-of-25 from the floor and 2-of 14 from deep) Wednesday in a 118-114 loss to the Washington Wizards that slammed the brakes on his 11-game streak of 30-point performances.
“It was going to end at some point,” he said. “Now, you’ve got to start another one.”
The seven-time All-Star, who entered play with the record for the most triples in a season (402) and second-most of a career (2,761), has more games with double-digit three-pointers this month (four) than games with fewer than four three-pointers (two).
That’s imperative for improving Golden State’s chances of returning to the playoffs, as well as Curry’s burgeoning prospects for capturing a third Kia MVP award.
Curry checks in at No. 5 in this week’s edition of the Kia Race to the MVP Ladder, and Denver’s Nikola Jokic maintains a firm grip on the top spot, as we head into the final month of the regular season.
