Steph Curry Just Set an NBA Record for the WORST 3-Point Shooting Game

Normally, when you hear the words “Steph Curry” and “3-point shooting record,” it’s because the two-time MVP has smashed yet another record for long distance shots. On Monday night, however, Curry put his name in the records book for an entirely different reason.

In a game against the woeful Philadelphia 76ers, Curry went 0-for-11 from behind the arc. That puts him in the NBA record book for most three-point attempts with a make, tied with Trey Burke and Antoine Walker. It was one shot worse than when he went 0-for-10 against the Lakers earlier this season. Curry also had an 0-for-8 game against the Clippers recently.

Despite the off night, Curry still stands as one of the greatest three-point shooters in NBA history. He smashed the single season record for three-pointers made and then broke his own record the year after. His career long distance shooting percentage is a remarkable 44%, and will soon pass Kobe Bryant on the list of all-time three-pointers made, moving in 11th place. At just 28-years old and roughly 1,100 made shots behind the all-time leader Ray Allen (2,973 made), it’s likely a question of when, not if, Curry will eventually stand alone at the top of the list.

Curry still finished Monday’s game with 19 points, six assists, four rebounds, and a couple of steals. And since the rest of the Golden State Warriors are basically an All-Star team, with Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green able to pick up the slack, Curry and the Warriors still beat the hapless 76ers 119-108.
