With his first points against the Jazz in Salt Lake City, with a 3-pointer, Stephen Curry broke yet another NBA record related to 3-pointers.
This time it’s the NBA record streak for most consecutive games with at least one 3-pointer.
— Golden State Warriors (@warriors) January 2, 2022
The baby-faced assassin sets this new record in the same arena where he passed Reggie Miller for second on the all-time 3-pointers made list in Jan. 2021.
For more, here are a few stats to know from Curry’s NBA record streak:
158: Longest streak of consecutive games with at least one 3-pointer
Given Curry’s current form, it would be safe to expect this streak to extend beyond 158 which was just enough to break his previous record.
This achievement comes less than a month after Curry passed Ray Allen’s tally for most 3-pointers in NBA regular season at Madison Square Garden and just a few days after he crossed the 3,000 3-pointers landmark.
1127: Duration of Curry’s streak
Now, Curry now holds the record for the longest streak ever with at least a single 3-pointer but also holds the record for the longest duration of a streak in NBA history.
At 1127 days, from Dec. 1, 2018 to Jan. 1, 2022, his streak lasts over 1100 which is by far the longest ever. He was obviously helped by a one-in-a-century COVID-19 pandemic which forced the league to go on a nearly five-month hiatus in 2020.
Then, Curry and the Warriors didn’t make the cut to participate in the Orlando bubble in the summer of 2020.
1: Only player with multiple 100-game streaks
In NBA history, there have been only three instances where players have shot at least one 3-pointer for at least 100 consecutive games and Curry owns two of those three streaks.
Kyle Korver is the other player with a 127-game streak, one he recorded between Nov. 4, 2012 and Mar. 2, 2014.
6: Number of 11 3-pointer games during streak
During this current streak, Curry has recorded six of his 12 career games with at least 11 3-pointers. The tally of six, over the recent three-year stretch, is already double of what anybody has done over the course of their career in NBA history.
Klay Thompson and Damian Lillard, are next-best, tied at two games apiece.
With respect to games with at least 10 3-pointers, Curry has recorded 12 of his 22 career games during this streak. The tally of 12 is more than double of Thompson’s tally of five which ranks second all-time.
