Stephen Curry Makes MVP Run, Breaks his own 3s Record
MVP talk this season has been filled with so many different players' name.
In Thursday night's game between Golden State and Portland Trail Blazers, Stephen Curry continued to remind everyone why he should be the MVP this season.
During that game, which the Warriors won 116-105, Curry broke his own 3s record. He came into the game with 268 3s, which is four points shy of his season record that he set two years ago.
Within the first quarter, Curry tied his record by making four 3s in the first quarter. He then broke his record by making a three in the second quarter. Curry made four more threes and finished his night 17-for-23 with 45 points and 10 assists.
Watch Curry break his record here:
Portland's guard Damian Lillard, said, "We tried to mix up our coverages a little bit because he came out making shots from everywhere. It pretty much just didn't matter. He made shots with a hand in his face, off balance, deep, everything. He just had it going."
According to Elias Sports Bureau, Curry became the first player in NBA history to make 45 points in 25 shots or fewer and five free throws or fewer. He also became the first Warrior to have at least 40 points and 10 assists since Latrell Sprewell did it in 1997.
"He's our MVP," teammate Klay Thompson said. "He should be for the league."
"He played like he wants to be MVP," Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge said.
The Warriors (64-15) have clinched the best record in the NBA.
