Warriors and Kings set NBA record for combined 3-pointers

Not much time passes in the NBA these days between broken 3-point records. Another mark fell Saturday night.

The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings put on a shooting bonanza and set a single-game record with 41 combined 3-pointers. Steph Curry hit 10 on his way to a game-high 42 points in the Warriors’ 127-123 win.

Golden State shot 21-of-47 from long range, while Sacramento went 20-of-36. It marked the first game in NBA history in which both teams made at least 20 3s. The teams passed the previous mark of 40 3-pointers, set by the Cleveland Cavaliers (21) and Minnesota Timberwolves (19) last February.

Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Quinn Cook each added three 3-pointers for the Warriors, while Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala each made one.

Buddy Hield led the Kings with eight 3s. Justin Jackson made five, Bogdan Bogdanovic had three and Nemanja Bjelica added two. Ben McLemore and Yogi Ferrell each hit one.
