Golden States Warriors’ guard Stephen Curry had an incredible time in Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game in Cleveland. He broke Paul George’s NBA record for most three-pointers (nine) in a single All-Star Game by scoring a total of 50 points.
Curry’s 50 point score is just two-point away from the record of 52, set in 2017 by Anthony Davis. His fantastic performance in Team LeBron’s 163-160 win over Team Durant got him the 2022 Kobe Bryant NBA All-Star Game MVP trophy.
Steph on winning MVP trophy:
“This trophy has a very special meaning, honoring Kobe and Gigi, everybody that was lost two years ago,”
“I’m very humbled, very blessed, and I really appreciate it.”
While Curry might have been having the worst 3-point shooting season in his career but this Sunday, he let everyone know why he’s the most excellent shooter of all time. Curry broke Paul George’s record for most 3-pointers in a single All-Star Game with his 10th 3-pointer in the third quarter of the game.
After the game, LeBron James praised Curry’s skills calling him otherworldly:
“Steph, I mean, come on, man. This guy is from a different planet. He literally has an automatic sniper connected to his arm and, when he lets it go, not only himself but everybody on the floor, in the stands, on TV, on their phones, whatever you’re watching on, you think it’s going in every time. And nine times out of 10, sometimes 10 times out of 10, it does go in. So to be out there and watch that kid from Akron as well shoot the ball the way he shot it, it was unbelievable. It was pretty cool.”
Curry has been showcasing exceptional talent for the last couple of months. We’ll have to see if this display of remarkable shooting in Sunday’s game gets him there as the Warriors prepare for another NBA Finals.
