Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors still have a lot to accomplish and a lot of records to set, among them the Chicago Bulls’ best-ever 72 wins in a season.

Steph Curry Becomes First Player In NBA To Make 300 3s In A Single Season

However, Curry did set another record on Monday during the Warriors’ 119-113 home victory over the Orlando Magic. He scored 41 points and became the first player in NBA history to make 300 3-pointers in a season. The Warriors also set a record by earning their 45th straight home win at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

“To have protected our home court 45 straight games in the regular season, it hasn’t been done in history, so that’s a pretty special accomplishment,” Curry said. “That win record is still in reach.”

Although Curry didn’t match his 51-point performance against the Magic on Feb. 25, he shot 7 for 13 from long range and also got 13 rebounds. He now has 301 3s with 20 games left this season.

The Warriors (56-6) have now improved to 27-0 at home this season, a winning streak that includes the final 18 games of last season before the team’s run to its first championship in 40 years. The Warriors haven’t lost a regular-season game at Oracle Arena since falling to the Bulls in overtime on Jan. 27, 2015.

Klay Thompson added 27 points for the Warriors (56-6), who overcame a season-high 24 turnovers to return from a stinging 112-95 road loss to the Lakers on Sunday that snapped a seven-game winning streak.

Golden State Coach Steve Kerr said the “46 turnovers in the last 36 hours, inexcusable. … If we don’t get that cleaned up then we’re in big trouble. What we have to get back to is simple, simple, simple,” he said. “The simple leads to the spectacular.”

Aaron Gordon earned 20 points and 16 rebounds for the Magic, in a night Orlando played without leading scorer and center Nikola Vucevic because of a strained right groin.

During one impressive sequence late in the third, Curry dribbled inside of the arc then back out before knocking down a 3 while being guarded by 6-foot-10 Ersan Ilyasova.
