Golden State Warriors

Stephen Curry breaks NBA record for most 3-pointers in a calendar month as Warriors survive Kings

Stephen Curry's red-hot April continued against the Sacramento Kings.

En route to finishing with a game-high 37 against the Division rivals, the former two-time league MVP knocked down six 3-pointers and thus, set a new NBA record for the most long-distance shots in a calendar month.

Over the 13 games so far in April, he has scored 30 or more 12 times and has recorded four games with at least 10 3-pointers. Against the Kings, he had a couple of long-range bombs that could make your jaw drop.

It's not just the volume but Curry's been racking up these numbers with efficiency, knocking down 52.9 percent of his field-goal attempts, 47.2 percent of 3-pointers and 89.7 percent of his free throws in April.

More importantly, this hot stretch has got the Warriors rolling. Since their three straight losses to start April, Golden State has won eight of 11 including impressive wins over the Nuggets (twice), 76ers (in Philadelphia), Bucks and the Celtics (in Boston).

This one against Sacramento went down to the final seconds with nearly all of the game's nine ties and nine lead changes in the second half.

Curry was all over the place in the final minute, going from pulling off a clutch block to nearly throwing away the game, to then icing it with three straight free-throws.

This win takes Golden State to 31-30, tied with San Antonio for the 10th seed while trailing the seventh-seeded Portland franchise by just 1.5 games and the sixth-seeded Dallas team by three.

Curry will look to extend his NBA record tally for 3-pointers in April as the Warriors host Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks for a crucial game after a day off.
