There’s a very good reason Drake penned one of his most notable lyrical lines, ‘Steph Curry with the shot.’ The Golden State Warrior was on fire when he set a new NBA record for 13 3-pointers in a single game, Nov, 7, against the New Orleans Pelicans! See the EPIC moment here, and his response!
If Steph Curry‘s 3-point streak is any indicator of how his 2016-2017 season will go for the Golden State Warriors, they may just walk away with a championship! The 28-year-old set a brand new NBA record, Nov. 7, when he hit 13 3-pointers in one single game, and it was the most epic moment EVER! Watch him sink his 13th shot while the Warriors took on the Pelicans, below!
After the father-of-two set the record, the crowd went NUTS, and he did too, rightfully so. Steph was so happy he probably tasted an NBA championship in that moment. Clearly proud, Steph screamed with joy as he high-fived his teammate, Kevin Durant, 28, who gave him a celebratory nudge and pat on the head. It seems like a history-making bond has already formed.
In a press conference after the game, where the Warriors pulled the W over the Pelicans 116-106, Steph addressed his record-setting moment, saying “the last three [shots] were pretty special.” After sinking the 9th and 10th baskets, “that’s the first time I thought about it,” he said, referring the moment he felt the record was possible. The pressure must’ve really set in when he thought about how he’s been in the same position a few times before. “I’ve been in that situation, I think, two other times, where I had a shot at it down the stretch of the game. But, this, was a special night.”
The game against the Pelicans, was definitely a 180 for Steph and the Warriors after they suffered a 20-point loss to the Lakers just days before. During the Nov. 4 game in LA, Steph didn’t hit one single 3-pointer — breaking his historic streak of hitting at least one 3-point shot in 157 consecutive games, dating back to Nov. 2013. Ouch.

Steph reflected on the aftermath of his broken streak to the Lakers. “I was hard on myself in practice the last two days [after the loss],” he said. “I had pretty good shooting sessions. I don’t overreact to games like that whether I go 0-for-12 or 2-for-12 or whatever it is. My process is the same, but I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in.” We’re loving his mindset.
That should explain a part of the reason this historic moment is so groundbreaking for Steph, and he deserves every second of bliss after draining so many shots. Many have said he is the greatest shooter in NBA history, and he definitely proved that to potentially be true in Monday’s game. If Steph keeps it up [which we’re predicting he will], the Warriors will be one tough team to beat this season.
