Stephen Curry made 77 straight 3-pointers in practice
You know that pat on the back you gave yourself this morning for doing a good job at work?
Stephen Curry wasn’t doing this. He was too busy nailing 77 consecutive 3-pointers at Golden State Warriors practice on Tuesday — a personal best for him.
Insert flame emoji here.
The Warriors’ Twitter account gave their MVP-hopeful a shout-out, along with video of some of the shots from the streak.

Curry, who is about to lead his Warriors to a third consecutive playoff appearance, has been on somewhat of a roll in real games as of late.
This past week saw Curry break his own single-season mark for the most 3-pointers made in NBA history. Needless to say, Curry’s shot chart is something to behold.
Curry is shooting a cool 57 percent on corner threes this year. Yes, 57 percent.
Back to his performance at practice on Tuesday. Curry — going all around the arc during his shooting drill — nailed 94 of 100 3-pointers.
Curry’s Splash Bros partner, Klay Thompson, has yet to hit more than 36 straight 3-pointers in practice. Thompson clearly needs to pick his game up.
At 66-15 on the year, Golden State hosts the Denver Nuggets in the team’s regular season finale on Wednesday. It will then face either the New Orleans Pelicans or Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round.
