Warriors’ victory ends Stephen Curry’s impressive streak of 268 consecutive games with a successful three-pointer.

Stephen Curry’s NBA-record streak of consecutive three-pointers ended at 268 games on Sunday night in the Golden State Warriors’ 118-114 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Curry went 0 for 8 from beyond the arc, 2 for 12 overall, and scored seven points. He started the streak on December 1, 2018, against Detroit.

Apart from being the NBA’s all-time leader in career three-pointers with 3,500, Curry last failed to make a three-pointer in a regular-season game on November 8, 2018, when he went 0 for 4 against Milwaukee. He also holds the second-longest streak in NBA history at 157 games.

“We can’t always depend on Steph to rescue us every night,” said Warriors coach Steve Kerr. “It was a tough night for him, but that’s the essence of being a team. Each player steps up on different nights and fills in for each other. That’s a positive sign because Steph has carried us for a significant part of this year. We need to provide him with more support.”

The two-time MVP failed to make any of his nine three-point attempts in Game 5 of the 2022 NBA Finals against Boston, which was one game before the Warriors clinched the championship. Before that, Curry had made at least one three-pointer in his previous 132 postseason games, setting another NBA record.
