Wagswoofs – On June 13, 2022, in San Francisco, California, USA, Stephen Curry, the guard for the Golden State Warriors, made a triumphant gesture after leading his team to victory against the Boston Celtics in game five of the 2022 NBA Finals at Chase Center. This powerful image captured the passion and determination displayed by Curry as he celebrated the hard-fought win.
In a surprising turn of events, Steph Curry failed to make a single three-pointer in an NBA game.
In an unusual turn of events, Stephen Curry, the superstar of the Golden State Warriors, struggled to find his usual scoring rhythm in Sunday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Curry, known for his exceptional shooting skills, finished the game with a mere seven points, shooting a disappointing 2-for-12 from the field. What made matters worse was that he failed to convert any of his eight three-point attempts. Consequently, Curry’s impressive streak of 268 consecutive games with at least one made triple came to an end.
Mikal Bridges and LeBron James have their own impressive streaks in the NBA, but Stephen Curry’s three-point streak stands out among them. Lasting for the equivalent of 3.27 full NBA seasons, Curry’s streak is the longest of its kind in league history. It’s been more than five years since Curry played a game without making a three-pointer, with the last occurrence happening in November 2018.

The streak of the greatest shooter in basketball history probably didn’t bother him too much. Despite that, Golden State still emerged victorious with a 118-114 win, thanks to the impressive performances from Curry’s teammates. This season, they have largely flown under the radar, but they stepped up when it mattered most. Klay Thompson contributed 28 points, while Andrew Wiggins put up 25 points to secure the win.
The NBA witnessed the conclusion of several impressive milestones this weekend. Just a few days ago, Kevin Durant, former teammate of Curry, saw his remarkable streak also come to an end.
