Curry connects on 9 threes in Gm. 2, breaking Ray Allen's Finals record.
Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Stephen Curry set an NBA Finals record last night with nine three-pointers in a 122-103 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Curry connected on 11-of-26 shooting, including 9-of- 17 from behind the arc, en route to a game-high 33 points.
The nine threes snapped Ray Allen's NBA Finals record of eight, which he set back in 2010 as a member of the Boston Celtics against the Los Angeles Lakers.
"It's a pretty cool deal to accomplish knowing who's held the record," Curry said, per ESPN.
"He was tremendous," said Warriors coach Steve Kerr. "You know, nine 3s and seemed to hit the big shot every time we needed one. But yeah, he was fantastic."
"Every shot that he takes, he has the business of making them," LeBron James said of Curry's night. "That's what he does. So we shouldn't be surprised or deflated at it. Take the ball out, move it forward and try to execute on the other end."
In addition to his record-setting shooting performance, Curry also dished out eight assists and pulled down seven rebounds.
The series now shifts to the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland for Games 3 & 4. The two teams will be back on the court Wednesday night with tipoff scheduled for 9:00pm ET.
