2,900 AND COUNTING
Coming into the night, Ray Allen was the only player in NBA history to make 2,900 career 3-pointers. That number doubled on Tuesday night as Stephen Curry eclipsed that mark early in the first quarter. Curry now trails Allen by only 65 3-pointers to become the NBA’s all-time 3-point leader. Curry also extended his streak of making at least one 3-pointer to 139 consecutive games, the second longest streak in NBA history, only trailing his own record of 157 games.

PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant were both named Conference Player of the Week on Monday. The pair are the NBA’s two leading scorers this season and early MVP candidates, but it was Curry who was the star of the show on Tuesday night. Curry recorded 37 points, including making nine 3-pointers. There have now been four instances this season where a player has hit nine 3-pointers in a game. Curry has done it three of those times.

KUMINGA’S PRESENCE
Rookie Jonathan Kuminga played 19 minutes on Tuesday, recording seven points and six rebounds, but his most impressive play was his block on James Harden in the second quarter. Kuminga showed off his athleticism getting well above the rim and swatting Harden’s lay-up with his left hand.

WIGGINS’ QUICK 13
Andrew Wiggins was held scoreless in the first 17 minutes of the game, but when he started to get things going, he was hard to stop. Wiggins scored 13 points in the final 5:10 minutes of the second quarter, including two 3-pointers in the final 30 seconds of the half. The forward finished the game with 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting.

THIRD QUARTER WARRIORS
The Warriors came into the night outscoring teams by an average of 13.2 points in the third quarter, more than six points higher than the next best team. Tuesday night was much of the same as the Warriors outscored the Nets 35-18 in the third frame. The Dubs opened the third quarter with an 8-0 run to extend a 5-point halftime lead to 13 and never let the Nets get back into the game. The quarter was capped off with an Andre Iguodala 26-foot buzzer-beater to give the Warriors a 22-point lead.

UP NEXT
The Warriors continue their four-game road trip on Thursday when the Dubs face the Cleveland Cavaliers at 4:30 p.m. It will be the second night of a back-to-back for the Cavaliers, who play the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.
