Stephen Curry set a new NBA single-game record for three-pointers with 13 on Monday night.

Steph Curry Sets Single-Game Record With 13 Three-Pointers in Warriors’ 116-106 Win Vs Pelicans

The two-time reigning MVP shot 13-for-17 from three-point range and scored a season-high 46 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 116-106 home victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Curry, 28, shot 16-for-26 overall and added five assists and five rebounds. He sank his 13th 3-pointer with 2:23 left in the fourth quarter to put the Warriors up 109-97.

“This was a special night,” the point guard said.

The explosion came one game after Curry’s record streak of 157 straight regular-season games with at least one three-pointer was snapped. He shot 0-for-10 from long range in a 117-97 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

“I was hard on myself in practice the last two days. I had pretty good shooting sessions,” Curry said. “I don’t overreact to games like that whether I go 0-for-10 or 2-for-12 or whatever it is. My process is the same, but I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in.”

Curry was one of three players to hold the previous record of 12 three-pointers in a game, tying the mark last season on Feb. 27. Kobe Bryant set the record of 12 in January 2003, and Donyell Marshall matched it in March 2005. Curry now has seven career games with at least 10 three-pointers.

“Nothing you can do about it. He was being Steph,” Pelicans star Anthony Davis said. Davis led New Orleans with 33 points.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who was named the 2015-2016 NBA Coach of the Year, also praised Curry.

“That was quite a show. Not at all surprising the way Steph bounces back from bad nights,” Kerr said.

While the star guard shot 76% from three-point range, the rest of Golden State went just 3-for-18 from beyond the arc. Klay Thompson was 2-for-7, Kevin Durant was 1-for-4, and Andre Iguodala was 0-for-4.

Thompson scored 24 points for the Warriors, and Durant added 22.
