• Stephen Curry sinks 16 three-pointers to shatter the All-Star Game record of most threes made to help Team LeBron win over Team Durant
  • He is also two points shy of the All-Star Game scoring record of 52
  • Curry takes home the All-Star Game MVP honors for the first time in his career

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry continues to cement his claim as the NBA’s greatest three-point shooter after claiming both the three-point record in an All-Star Game and most threes in a quarter.

At 33 years old, Curry dazzled the star-studded crowd at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio with an impressive 50-point performance to push Team Lebron to a 163-160 victory over Team Durant.

His 16-of-27 shooting from beyond the three-point arc smashed the previous record of nine threes made in the All-Star Game that was previously set by Paul George back in 2016, with Curry scoring seven of them in the third quarter alone–an All-Star Game record in itself.

Whether he was coming off screens or simply pulling up, the Warriors star was firing on all cylinders throughout the game and social media could not help but celebrate each three he made.

Curry was also two points shy of tying the All-Star Game record of 52 points set by Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis back in 2017.

This year’s All-Star Game was certainly one to watch as Team LeBron and Team Durant battled it out to raise money for their respective charities (Kent State I PROMISE Scholars for the former and the Greater Cleveland Food Bank for the latter) and for Curry’s subsequent explosion during the game.

The revamped format involving charities, instituted in the 2020 All-Star Game, had both teams playing their hardest throughout the night and was certainly a treat to everyone watching.

The hometown kid in LeBron James capped off the night with the game-winner by scoring a turnaround jumper over Zach LaVine to remain undefeated in the All-Star Game’s draft-style format that was established in 2018.

Curry’s 2021-22 season has also seen him break the all-time three-point shooting record, previously held by NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen, back in December 2021 against the New York Knicks.

Though Curry has his detractors, they are few and far between as he has certainly revolutionized the game of basketball thanks to his ability to stretch the opposing team’s defense due to his outstanding range.

This would also be the first time that Curry would take home All-Star Game MVP honors since first being named to participate in the event back in 2014.
