Steph Curry drains 105 consecutive 3-pointers in incredible video from Warriors’ practice
Steph Curry made one 3-pointer at the Golden State Warriors’ practice Saturday in Chicago. Then, he made another and another and another until he made 105 consecutive 3-pointers.
Yes, Curry is one of the best 3-point shooters in NBA history but making that many without a miss is quite a feat even for a player who is No. 3 on the league’s all-time 3-pointers made list and will pass Reggie Miller soon for No. 2 and will eventually catch Ray Allen for No. 1.
The Warriors, who are in Chicago for Sunday’s game against the Bulls, have video of the final 103 3s made at the Bulls’ practice facility.
5+ minutes without a miss.

“I think his previous record was 77. That’s insane,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters. “I don’t know if the 'Guinness Book of World Records' still exists. That was one of my favorite books growing up. If it still exists that should go in the book because we have video evidence now apparently.”
They were all corner 3s, and the video lasts five minutes, 13 seconds. After missing the 106th shot, Curry reacted part in celebration and part in frustration – hoping he could have continued making shots.
Kerr knows something about made 3s. He holds the NBA’s record for 3-point shooting percentage at 45.4% – a tad better than Curry’s 43.3% though Kerr never took more than three 3s per game and Curry averaged 10 attempts last season.
“So he choked and couldn’t make the 106th one,” Kerr said. “I guess he just didn’t have it in him. It’s very disappointing. I guarantee you he didn’t stop. If you’ve made 105 in a row you keep going. I’m pretty sure he missed and just wasn’t up to the challenge.”
Curry’s next 3-pointer will give him 2,500 for his career.
