With a little over seven minutes remaining in the second quarter, Curry splashed home his fifth 3-pointer of the game, setting an NBA record with at least four made 3-pointers in eight consecutive games to begin a season.
Adding to the incredible feat is the fact that the previous record of seven also belonged to Curry, which the Warriors’ superstar set when he made more than four 3-pointers in seven consecutive games to begin the 2018-19 NBA season.
Curry finished the first half in Detroit with 20 points, draining five of his 10 3-point attempts in 15 minutes of work on the court.

Curry leads the NBA with 5.7 made 3-pointers per game this season, averaging 30.4 points per game while shooting 49 percent from beyond the arc through Golden State’s first seven games.
