The greatest shooter of all time, Stephen Curry has created a new club after hitting the 3000th three-pointer of his career during an 89-86 loss to the Nuggets.

Curry set the record in the third quarter, knocking down the historic triple over Facundo Campazzo. The Baby-Faced Assasin finished the night with 23 points on 6-16 shooting from the field (5-14 from long distance). Curry has had a momentous season with the Warriors thus far, leading them to a League-best 27-7 season without fellow sniper Klay Thompson, and set the record for most three-pointers made in the regular season.
“It’s kind of a weird thought to think that for the rest of my career, for the most part, I’m pretty sure, every 3-pointer I make will be a new record,” Curry told NBCSports. “I’m just going to enjoy it. I don’t know what’s next, something like 3,333? Got to start coming up with stuff. See y’all next year for that one, probably.”
In addition to that ridiculous feat, Curry also matched one of his records by hitting a three-pointer in his 157th consecutive game. The current streak began on Dec. 1, 2018. Curry has made 3004 triples in his career and has a chance to knock down at least 400 for the second time in his career.
Curry won’t limit himself to what he’s capable of doing when it comes to creating more historical benchmarks.
“Nah, same thing when I hit 400 in a season,” Curry said. “You don’t really put limits on what can happen. Just hoop and enjoy yourself and see what happens when it’s all said and done.”
The Warriors replay the Nuggets (17-16) on Thursday.
