Steph Curry‘s impressive three-point shooting streak came to an end during Golden State’s 20-point loss to the Lakers on Friday night. For the first time in more than 150 games, Curry left the floor without hitting a three as he went 0-for-10 from downtown against Los Angeles.
While Curry’s historic streak came to an end, Kevin Durant kept creeping closer to the record for consecutive games with at least 20 points since the NBA-ABA merger. KD dropped 27 on Los Angeles, giving him his 70th game in a row with 20 or more. This put him into a tie for the sixth-longest streak in league history.
Getting to the league’s all-time mark in this would take a whole lot of work – the all-time record is 126 straight games, set by Wilt Chamberlain. But the mark for the most consecutive 20-point games since the merger in 1976 is held by Michael Jordan, and it is very much within striking distance. In fact, if all goes right, Durant would have this record to himself by the end of next week.
