Stephen Curry is known as the best shooter of his generation for good reason. In Game 2 on Sunday he reminded everyone why.
The 30-year-old hit nine 3-pointers in the Game 3 which sets the record for the most shots made from beyond the arc in Finals history.
"He was tremendous," Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters. "Nine 3's and seemed to hit a big shot every tie we needed one."

Curry finished the night 9 of 17 from 3-point range with 33 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. He broke Ray Allen's previous record of eight which he set in 2010 with the Celtics.
"As I've gone through my career I've been blessed to play, Reggie (Miller) and Ray Allen are always two names that pop up on that list, and all the 3-point shooters out there," Curry told ESPN after the game. "So it's an honour to be mentioned with all those names, that's pretty special."
The two-time NBA MVP finished the night with a game-high 33 points with eight assists and seven rebounds. He was 11 of 26 from the floor.
Curry also passed LeBron James for the most 3-pointers made in NBA Finals history with 90. James finished Game 2 with 85 3-pointers made in his NBA Finals career.
The Warriors are now up 2-0 in the series after a 122-103 victory.
