Stephen Curry has become the best shooter in the game, and players often times will go on ridiculous streaks on the practice court, undefended, while few are there to watch.
Those facts make this report, which says that Curry made 77 straight three-point shots during a recent practice, believable — if you choose to take that leap of faith.
Curry told ESPN the 77 represents the most he’s ever made in a row. Out of 100 shots taken during the session, he made 94.
Teammate Klay Thompson, who is second in the NBA with 234 made 3s, told ESPN he couldn’t believe Curry had made 77 straight and that his own record streak is 36.
Curry is an incredible shooter, and this is certainly possible. But without concrete video evidence of the feat, I’m going to remain at least a little bit skeptical.
