On a night when Stephen Curry’s performance broke records, the hero of the game was Damion Lee who hit a three-pointer from the top of the arc with 2.3 seconds left to lift the Dubs over the Bulls for their first win of the season in what was a tightly contested game in Chicago.
Stephen Curry found not one, but two ways to etch his name in the record books tonight. With his first three pointer of the night at the one-minute mark of the first quarter, he became just the third player in NBA history to reach the plateau of 2,500 career three-pointers made, joining Ray Allen (2,973) and Reggie Miller (2,560) in the feat.
The Dubs’ guard also made his first six consecutive free throws, extending his streak of made free throws in a row up to 61. That set a new franchise record for consecutive shots made for the charity stripe, eclipsing the mark held by Rick Barry who made 60 consecutive in 1976.
