Before tonight’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers, Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry had been scoring at least one triple in the NBA for 268 games in a row. In the match, however, Curry failed to score a single shot from long distance and the streak came to a sudden halt.
But not for lack of attempts. Curry played 31 minutes and attempted eight shots from behind the arc. It just wasn’t his night, as evidenced by his 7-point, 8-assist performance. He recorded a steal and a stoppage, but overall it was a night to forget for the greatest shooter of all time.
The last time Steph Curry did not make a three-pointer was Nov. 8, 2018 against the Milwaukee Bucks. In that game he went 0 for 4 from beyond the arc, finishing with 10 points and dropping the Warriors 134 to 111.
Fortunately for Curry, however, this time was a little different. Unlike the game with the Bucks, the Californians beat the Blazers 118 to 114. Although it was not easy and it looked like Portland might force overtime, the team held on and brought home the victory.
