Sometimes, after watching these guys play for so long, you forget that it’s pretty tough to throw a round ball into a flat goal that is perched ten feet off the ground. It’s even tougher to toss it in from around 24 feet away, just inches past the NBA’s three-point line.
For Golden State Warrior guard and MVP candidate Stephen Curry, apparently this is no such trifle. From the Associated Press:
ESPN reports that Curry made 77 consecutive 3-pointers following Tuesday's practice. Curry says it's the most 3s in a row he has ever made. He also says he made 94 of 100 shots during the session.
After most practices, Curry rotates around the perimeter as assistant Bruce Fraser feeds him the ball. He typically takes 10 shots from several spots and often goes around the arc twice.
Curry, a leading candidate for league MVP, already has surpassed his own NBA record for most 3-pointers in a season. He enters Wednesday night's regular-season finale against Denver with 284 3-pointers.Read More »from Stephen Curry reportedly made 77 three-pointers in a row at practice, natch
