Stephen Curry failed to make a three-pointer during the Golden State Warriors’ 118–114 win over the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday night, his first regular-season miss in more than five years.
The Warriors superstar was 0 for 8 from the three-point range and 2 for 12 overall at the Moda Center in Portland on Sunday, scoring seven points overall.
Curry began his NBA-record 268-game streak on Nov. 8, 2018, when he was 0 for 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to the NBA. Curry also holds the second-longest three-point streak record at 157 games.
The 35-year-old point guard holds the record for the most three-pointers after surpassing Ray Allen’s record of 3,358 in November 2021. On Saturday, during the Warriors 124-120 win against the Brooklyn Nets, Curry became the first NBA player to make 3,500 career triples.
“We cant rely on Steph to bail us out on every single night,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game on Sunday. “It was a tough night for him, but thats what a team is supposed to be about. Everybody filling in for each other, different guys stepping up each night. Thats a great sign, because hes carried us for long enough this year. We need to give him more help.”
The Warriors pulled out the win by a slim margin on Sunday, after the Blazers surged ahead. The Warriors were playing without Draymond Green on defense, as he serves an indefinite suspension for striking Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkić during a game.
