Last February, en route to setting the single-season record for made 3-pointers, Stephen Curry drained 12 3-pointers in a Warriors win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
After the game, Curry knew that he had tied the single-game record, but was perturbed that he didn’t sink another 3 to have the record all to himself.
