Golden State Warriors’ iconic player, Stephen Curry, recognized as one of the league’s premier shooters, encountered an unusual occurrence in their recent match against the Portland Trail Blazers. Curry went 0 of 8 from the 3 point line in the Warriors’ 118-114 victory on Sunday night, marking his first regular season game without a successful 3 pointer since 2018.

The last instance Stephen Curry played a game without a made 3 pointer in the regular season dates back to November 8, 2018, during a matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks. On that occasion, he went 0 of 4 from behind the arc in a loss. Subsequently, Curry embarked on an incredible streak of 268 games, setting an NBA record for the most consecutive games with at least one made three-pointer.

Incorporating playoff games, Stephen Curry’s last appearance without a made 3-pointer was in Game 5 of the 2022 NBA Finals, where the Warriors emerged victorious despite Curry shooting 0-of-9 from behind the arc. Over the years, Curry has only had 10 games without a successful 3-pointer, showcasing his consistent prowess from beyond the arc since 2013.

Last time Stephen Curry missed a regular-season 3-pointer was in 2018; previously held NBA’s longest streak:

Previously, Stephen Curry established the record with a streak of 157 games with a made 3-pointer from 2014 to 2016, surpassing Kyle Korver’s previous mark of 127 games.

In Sunday night’s triumph at the Moda Center, Curry concluded with just seven points, shooting 2 of 12 from the field. Despite his off-night shooting, Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 28 points, while Andrew Wiggins contributed 25 points off the bench. Notably, Thompson and Wiggins combined for nine of the team’s 13 3 pointers in the victory.

Throughout this season, Curry, aged 35 and in his 15th NBA season, has been maintaining remarkable statistics, averaging 29 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game. His 3 point average of 5 made shots per game is close to his career high.

Looking ahead, the Warriors are set to host the Boston Celtics in their upcoming game at the Chase Center, marking the start of a three game homestand.
