NBA News: Stephen Curry Touches Kyle Korver’s 3-point Milestone In 127 Straight Games

The MVP is once again in the limelight; this time, for notching up another record. On Wednesday in Miami, Stephen Curry touched Kyle Korver’s record of scoring 3’s in 127 straight regular season games.

And Curry has all the chances of setting a new milestone now. The reigning MVP touched Atlanta Hawks’ Korver’s mark with his first scoring shot of the night.

“That’s a pretty outrageous number, I think,” Curry revealed before Wednesday’s game, according to NBA.com. “When I was talking about it last year, I knew where he was. I think I was at 40 or 45. And I remember hearing what his number was. That’s crazy – every night you’re hitting a 3. Whether you’re shooting well or not, you’re still finding a way to knock down at least one. The longevity of that record is pretty remarkable.”

Curry scored the 127th three in the 78th second of the first quarter against the Miami Heat. He added five more to his tally on a 42-point night, his ninth 40-point night this season which takes him ahead of James Harden, according to ESPN. When did he last play a regular season game without scoring a 3-pointer?

It was way back in Nov. 11, 2014. Moreover, he has at least one 3-pointer in the last 202 of his 203 games. The MVP is also on course to smash his own single season 3-pointer record he set up last season.
