Stephen Curry continues to rewrite the NBA record books! In a dominant performance by the Golden State Warriors against the Memphis Grizzlies (137-116), Stephen Curry achieved a historic feat: reaching 300 3-pointers for an NBA-record fifth season.

This incredible accomplishment solidifies Curry's status as one of the greatest three-point shooters in basketball history. While the Warriors secured a well-deserved win, Curry's milestone was undoubtedly a highlight of the night.

Curry Leads Warriors to Victory

The Warriors, following a strong halftime message emphasizing control and defense, dominated the second half. Curry, despite scoring only 14 points, played a crucial role by sinking four crucial three-pointers. This achievement wasn't a one-man show, though.

Warriors TeamWork

The Warriors' success wasn't just about individual scoring. Chris Paul orchestrated the offense brilliantly, dishing out a season-high 14 assists. This focus on ball movement and teamwork was evident in the Warriors' impressive assist-to-turnover ratio of 43:6.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak for Memphis, but the Grizzlies put up a valiant fight. Jaren Jackson Jr. and Santi Aldama led the scoring for Memphis with 28 and 27 points, respectively.

The game wasn't without its tense moments. The history between these two teams, dating back to the 2022 playoffs, flared up when Draymond Green and Grizzlies players got tangled up. Technical fouls were issued, but cooler heads ultimately prevailed.

Looking Ahead

With this win, the Warriors improve their home record to .500 (18-18) and extend their winning streak to four games. Stephen Curry 's record-breaking achievement of 300 3-pointers is a significant accomplishment for him and the Warriors, solidifying their place as a top contender in the NBA.
