Wednesday night, the Houston Rockets set the record for most three-pointers made by a team in a season. Thursday night, Stephen Curry broke his own record for most three-pointers made in a season by an individual player.
Curry first broke Ray Allen‘s old record of 269 three-pointers in a season by making 272 threes in 2012-13. Curry “only” made 261 last season, but he outdid himself this year and made his 273rd three-pointer of the year in the second quarter of the Golden State Warriors’ game against the Portland Trail Blazers:

Curry entered the night four shy of the record and promptly hit four three-pointers in the first quarter before breaking the record in the second. He ended the night making 8-of-13 from three as part of a ridiculous 45-point night in a 116-105 victory that ended a two-game losing streak. The MVP candidate took over down the stretch and hit some absurd shots to put the game away, with his 276th three of the season an absolute bomb from the top of the key.
