Steph Curry has just broken the NBA record for most made threes in a month. In a 117-113 win against the Sacramento Kings, the Golden State Warriors superstar hit seven three-pointers, bringing his April total up to 85 and counting. The previous record was held by the Brooklyn Nets’ James Harden, who hit 82 threes in November 2019 while with Houston.
It’s hard to find anyone who isn’t in awe of Curry. His coach, Steve Kerr, was at a loss for words when he tried to describe his talent: “I don’t know what else to say. The shot-making is just unbelievable and mind-boggling, but I’ve used those phrases already.”
Curry’s longtime teammate Draymond Green had this to say: “Incredible, man. The rim is about the size of an ocean, literally. A couple of those ones he hit tonight, it’s incredible. The way he’s leading us, it’s been incredible to watch. His scoring is just a byproduct of that.”
But perhaps the most interesting recollection of it all came from the mouth of the man himself. When asked what goes through his mind when he’s shooting, Curry responded: “When you’re in this type of rhythm, nothing.”
According to Curry, the less you’re thinking, the better: “Just trying to be in the moment as much as possible. When you’re missing, that’s when you start thinking about mechanics, you start thinking about other stuff, those thoughts creep in your head. But when you’re in a flow, in rhythm, there is not much going on upstairs. It’s nice.”
Curry’s incredible game also caused Warriors fans to chant “MVP” during the game against the Kings. And considering the fact that he’s averaging over 38 points a game on 47% three-point shooting this month, leading his team to seven wins out of their last nine games—we’re not surprised in the slightest.
