Stephen Curry set a new single-game record with 13 three-pointers as the Golden State Warriors downed the winless New Orleans Pelicans 116-106 on Monday.
The reigning NBA MVP’s 13 threes broke the previous record of 12 he had shared with Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.
“That’s a pretty cool record to have,” Curry said after the win. “It probably won’t last too long, the way guys shoot in this league. But to have the three point record is pretty special.”
Curry finished with figures of 13 of 17 from three-point distance; the 40-point tally was the 23rd of his career.
