Curry breaks NBA record by hitting three-pointer in 128th straight game


One night after tying Kyle Korver's NBA record of 127 consecutive regular-season games shooting a three-pointer, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry wasted little time making the record his own.

Curry's first-quarter deep-range effort against the Orlando Magic on Thursday was his 128th straight game with a successful shot beyond the arc - the longest streak in NBA history.

"That's [127] a pretty outrageous number, I think," Curry said before matching the record on Wednesday. "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 three. 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."

The last time Curry went a game without hitting a three-pointer was November 2014.

He has made at least one in 202 of his last 203 NBA games.
