Earlier this year The Brooklyn Game introduced Curry/Nets Watch, which tracks Stephen Curry’s season total of three-pointers compared to the Nets. Could one man, albeit the greatest shooter the NBA has ever seen, outshoot an entire team from three-point range?
We’re about 10 percent through the season, but so far, the answer is yes. Even following the team’s season-high eight three-pointers against the Houston Rockets, they still trail Curry alone.
Curry has played in one more game than the Nets, but that one game didn’t make too much of a difference: he only hit three three-pointers in 10 tries. Two of Curry’s three-pointers Wednesday night were just ridiculous:
Curry now sits at 44 three-pointers on the season through nine games, while the Nets have just 34 through eight.
Here’s the chart, which tracks both the total and each game-by-game. The chart live-updates, so the above words may not reflect the current status of the chart.
At this stage in the season, Curry’s averaging just under five made threes per game, on 45.4% shooting. That’s right around his career average of 44.1%, and he shows no signs of slowing down. But the good news for the Nets: against the Rockets, they showed some signs of speeding up.
