Stephen Curry sets NBA record for fewest games in a season to get 100 three-pointers

What we are continuing to see from Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry of Akron, Ohio from beyond the arc is simply sensational. On Sunday, according to Ali Thanawalla of NBC Sports, Curry set the NBA record for the fewest games played in a season to reach 100 three-pointers. Curry set the century mark in only 19 games in a 105-90 Golden State win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Curry had the old record of 20 games, which was set in 2015-16, and tied in 2018-19.

Curry had seven three-pointers in the game, and now has 105 three-pointers on the season. He made NBA history with his second three-pointer of the game with a 25-foot jump shot from Gary Payton Jr. with 56 seconds left in the first quarter. At the time, the Warriors were trailing the Clippers 24-20. Curry finished the game with 33 points, six assists, six steals, and five rebounds. The six steals were a season-high and the most he has had in a single game since he had seven steals in a 115-98 Warriors win over the Clippers on December 7, 2016.

This is the second time this month Curry has set a NBA record when it comes to three-pointers. On November 12 in a 119-93 Golden State win over the Chicago Bulls, Curry set the NBA record for most three-pointers in a career (regular season and playoffs) with 3359. He now has 3407 three-pointers in the regular season and playoffs.

So far in 2021-22, Curry leads the NBA in three-point shots made (105), three-point shots attempted (248), free-throw percentage (.942), and points per game (28.6). More importantly, the Warriors are winning after struggling the last two seasons. At 18 wins and two losses, they have the best record in the NBA.
