Curry’s name often comes up in discussions about who the best shooter in the league is, and rightfully so. He currently ranks second in the league in three point percentage (.449).
He’s on pace to become the only player in NBA history to hit above 44% of his threes on more than seven attempts per game.
Curry is also on pace to become the only player in NBA history to average at least six assists and three three-pointers in a single season.
On December 21 vs. Charlotte, Curry hit a career-high eight three pointers (8-of-13 3FG), becoming the first player in franchise history to hit at least seven three-pointers in consecutive games and the first player in the NBA to do so since J.R. Smith on 4/2-4/4/09.
Curry became the sixth player in Warriors history to hit 400 three-pointers with his 400th on 11/23 at Denver.
With 142 threes, Stephen Curry is second in overall three-pointers made.
As a rookie, Curry competed in the 2010 Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout during All-Star Weekend. He finished second.
With Curry in in the Three-Point Contest, Thompson and Barnes in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, and Lee in the All-Star game, the Warriors will have 4 players at 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend.
All-Star Saturday Night coverage starts at 8 p.m. ET on TNT with the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest beginning at 5:30pm ET.
