Stephen Curry Has Record-Setting Night, Peers in Awe
Stephen Curry had a record-setting Saturday night, in the Golden State Warriors' OT win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
During the night, the reigning MVP sank 12 three-pointers, and tied, broke, set or extended four different records during his 46-point performance.
Curry tied the NBA record for most 3-point field goals in a game at 12, while becoming the first player in league history with 10 3-point field goals in back-to-back games. He also extended his streak for most consecutive games with a 3-pointer (129) and broke his own record for most 3-point field goals in a single season (now at 288).
Of all his shots Saturday, his final 3-pointer was the most dramatic, because it was a 32-footer that won the game with 0.6 seconds left in overtime to give the Warriors the win.
His performance not only had fans in awe, but also his peers, who took to Twitter to express their shock.
"@StephenCurry30 needs to stop it man!! He's ridiculous man! Never before seen someone like him in the history of ball," LeBron James tweeted.
"Curry is UNREAL!!!!" added Dwyane Wade.
".@StephenCurry30 has a chance to be the greatest player we've ever seen, if he plays at this level for the next 4-5yrs!" Magic Johnson wrote on Twitter.
"He can't be human," tweeted DeMar DeRozan.
