Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors set an NBA record this season with 402 made three-point shots, shattering the mark he set last season (286). Teammate Klay Thompson was second with 276 made threes.

An injured ankle kept Curry out of the Warriors’ Game 2 win over the Houston Rockets, but even that didn’t keep him from lighting it up from long range during pregame Monday night.

For the season, Curry also led the NBA with 886 three-point attempts. Is he a one-dimensional player? Nope. Besides leading the NBA in scoring (30.1 points per game), Curry led it in steals (169) and free-throw percentage (90.7). He was eighth in assists (527).

Curry averaged five made-three-pointers a game, but had 16 games of eight or more. Here’s a look at his most productive games from beyond – and sometimes well beyond – the arc.
