While Klay Thompson sparkled in the first half for the Warriors
(24 points), with this three in the third quarter, Curry passed
Jason Terry (2,282) for the third spot.

2011 NBA Champion Terry did it in 1410 regular season games,
however, Curry surpassed him by making more three’s in just 656
regular season games.

Curry had previously passed Kyle Korver this season for the
fourth spot on this chart, but it will most likely take him another
season before he reaches Reggie Miller (2,560) for the second spot
on this list. Ray Allen is at the No. 1 spot with 2,973
three-pointers made in 1300 regular season games.

Outscoring the Bulls 43-17 in the first quarter, Curry and the
Warriors had this game under control pretty early. If that wasn’t
enough, they dropped 40 points in the third quarter as well,
eventually cruising to a 37-point win with the starters hardly
taking the court in the final period.

Curry finished the game with 28 points, eight assists, and five
rebounds on 62.5% shooting from the field and 45.5% (5-of-11) from
beyond the arc. Klay, who did most of his damage in the first
quarter, recorded 30 for the night on 55.6% shooting and making 7
three’s on 11 attempts.

With the splash brothers catching fire, the two-time reigning
Finals MVP Kevin Durant had a relatively easy night, putting 22
points, five assists and four rebounds on 63.6% shooting in 29
minutes.

As a team, the Warriors shot 57.6% from the field, 46.2% from
beyond the arc and recorded 37 assists on their 53 made field
goals.

In the process, Golden State handed the Chicago Bulls their
sixth straight loss. The visitors had four players score in double
figures led by Zach LaVine, who had 29 on 62.5% shooting.

Scoring 109 points while shooting 44.9% from the field and
making three’s at a 45.0% clip with just 13 turnovers, the Bulls’
performance wasn’t particularly bad. They just came against the
unstoppable Warriors’ offense, fueled by the Splash brothers, that
finished the night with 146 points.

The points tally of 146 is Golden State’s second-highest of the
season, behind their 149-point night in Chicago when Klay broke the
record for most three’s in a single game (14).
