One of the amazing, impressive parts of watching an NBA practice/warm-up is watching guys who “can’t shoot” just drain shot after shot from everywhere when not contested and able to shoot in rhythm. In one of the first games I ever attended as a media member, I watched Luke Walton — career 32% from three — drain about 10 corner threes in a row with his legs almost against the courtside chairs off the court pregame. Centers known for their post play hitting 30-foot threes can be a common sight.
So take the best shooter the game has ever seen — Stephen Curry — and let him shoot in rhythm, uncontested warm-up threes, and you get 103 made threes in a row — five minutes of him not missing a shot. Here is the video proof.
5+ minutes without a miss.
