Earlier this year, we posed a question named “CurryWatch” at The Brooklyn Game: could otherworldly Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry outshoot the entire Brooklyn Nets team from three-point range?
At least so far, the answer is yes.
Saturday night provided a perfect opportunity to watch CurryWatch in action from both sides, as the Nets played and damn near beat the Golden State Warriors, falling 107-99 in overtime.
The Nets hit just two of eighteen threes, marking their worst shooting performance from beyond the arc since their 0-for-9 season debut. Curry wasn’t much better, but he did best the Nets overall, hitting five of 16 attempts.
Here’s the updated chart:
Though the Nets had recently caught up by hitting eight threes in back-to-back games, Curry has still had more three-pointers than the entire Nets team at each juncture thus far this season.
The Nets now rank last in the NBA in three-pointers made per game (4.3) and three-point percentage (26.5%). Curry leads the NBA among players in three-pointers made (57), three-pointers attempted (126), three-pointers made per game (5.2), and points per game (33.4), hitting 45.2 percent of his deep treys.
(Note: the chart will live-update throughout the season, so the words herein may not reflect the current status of the chart.)
