Stephen Curry did what only Stephen Curry can do at the conclusion of the first half Friday against the Indiana Pacers, setting an NBA record on a 48-foot buzzer-beating bomb. Curry pulled up just behind the half-court line to bank in the long distance heave. The basket, his 200th triple on the season, made him the first player in NBA history with four-straight seasons totaling 200 or more three-pointers.
Curry is well on pace to set another NBA record from downtown this season as well. He has 39 games left to surpass his own record for the most three-pointers made in a single season at 286.
The incredible half-court bomb followed Curry’s failed buzzer beater attempt at the end of the first quarter. He absolutely drained a nearly three-quarter-court heave, but let the shot go just moments after the buzzer sounded. Quite a way for Curry to welcome head coach Steve Kerr back to the sidelines.
Curry finished with his seventh career triple double—39 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds—in a 122–110 victory.
Golden State improved to 40–4 while Indiana fell to 23–20.
The Warriors host the San Antonio Spurs on Monday in a highly anticipated matchup.
