Stephen Curry On Whether Breaking Klay Thompson’s Single-Game 3-Pt Record Or Ray Allen’s All-Time 3-Pt Record Would Be More Fun: “1A And 1B”

Stephen Curry On Whether Breaking Klay Thompson’s Single-Game 3-Pt Record Or Ray Allen’s All-Time 3-Pt Record Would Be More Fun: “1A And 1B”

Stephen Curry is just a few three-pointers away from breaking Ray Allen’s all-time three-point record in the NBA. In Curry’s last game against the Orlando Magic, he made 7 three-pointers and is now just 16 three-pointers away from beating Ray Allen’s record and becoming the leading three-point scorer in NBA history.

There has been some chatter about Curry potentially breaking that record in the Warriors’ next game against the Portland Trail Blazers. 

Even Stephen has stoked that fire, claiming that he knows about that situation. If Curry wanted to break Allen’s record in the next game, he would have to make 16 threes, thus also breaking Klay Thompson’s record for most three-pointers in a single game.

When Stephen Curry was asked about which record he would have more fun breaking, he gave a characteristically coy answer. He suggested that he would have fun breaking both, potentially doing so in the same night.

“1A and 1B.”

It would be a sight to behold if Stephen Curry can break two of the most ridiculous records in NBA history in the same night. It would require Curry to have arguably the hottest night of his career, and score 48 points from just three-pointers alone. 

He could even add another milestone by doing so, surpassing his career-high of 62 points, which he scored against the Trail Blazers last season, the team he faces tonight.

Despite Curry’s individual brilliance, it might be too much, even for him, to expect Stephen to make 16 three-pointers in a game and break these two records. But it is not impossible, given how spectacular Curry can be when he finds his rhythm. 

It all depends on how motivated Steph is, and whether he can find his rhythm early. While it may be difficult, Steph might be the only person in the NBA who could really do this.
