Steph Curry Sets Finals Record With Nine Three-Pointers

Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry set an NBA Finals single-game record with nine three-pointers during Sunday night’s 122-103 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of the best-of-seven series. “He was tremendous,” said Warriors Coach Steve Kerr. “You know, nine threes, and seemed to hit the big shot every time we needed one. But yeah, he was fantastic.” Curry topped a mark set by former Boston Celtics player Ray Allen, who sank eight three-pointers against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 2 of the 2010 Finals between Boston and Los Angeles. “It’s a pretty cool deal to accomplish knowing who’s held the record,” Curry said. The Warriors, the defending champions, are two wins away from a third title in four years. Game 3 will be played in Cleveland on Wednesday.
