NBA star Curry makes 105 3s in a row

Stephen Curry made 105 straight 3-pointers from the same baseline spot to finish practice on Saturday in the lead-up to Golden State’s NBA game at Chicago.

The Warriors said they captured the final 103 on video at the Bulls’ practice facility.

Curry’s shots were counted by his longtime shooting man, assistant Bruce Fraser.

Curry – who on Christmas Day made just two of 10 threes in the Warriors’ 39-point loss to Milwaukee -d finally missed to end the streak.

“I think his previous record was 77. That’s insane,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Two-time MVP Curry can still dazzle at age 32 and at the start of his 12th NBA season.

With his next made 3, Curry will have 2,500 for his career – joining only Ray Allen and Reggie Miller to reach that mark.

“It was so amazing – 105 3s in a row. I knew it could be special around 30. Just amazing,” Fraser said by text.

Draymond Green didn’t witness the all-out downpour but he is confident in Curry’s count.

“I have zero doubt that he did it. I don’t need to watch a video to see how they went in, any of that,” Green said.

“As great as that is, I can’t sit here and act like, ‘Oh, I’m surprised.’ It’s just not really surprising to me.

“It’s such an incredible thing but I’m sorry, Steph, it doesn’t really get me up out of my seat that he hit 105 in a row, ’cause if you said anyone’s going to hit 105 3s in a row, my guess would be Steph.

“He’s capable of it. Anything with shooting the basketball he’s capable of doing it.

“It’s dope, super dope.”

Kerr said Curry got on a record roll and just kept shooting.

“So he choked and couldn’t make the 106th one,” Kerr said, tongue in cheek.

“I guess he just didn’t have it in him. It’s very disappointing.

“I guarantee you he didn’t stop. If you’ve made 105 in a row you keep going. I’m pretty sure he missed and just wasn’t up to the challenge.”

Green is listed as questionable for Sunday to make his season debut – for the winless Warriors – as he works back from a right foot injury.
