Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry set an NBA Finals single-game record for most three-pointers in a 122-103 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2.

 

Curry broke Ray Allen's previous record of eight three wire-to-wire in a comfortable Game 2 win over the Cavs while finishing with 33 points on 11-of-26 shooting while hitting 9 of his 17 attempts from deep.

He was tremendous. You know, nine 3s and seemed to hit the big shot every time we needed one. But yeah, he was fantastic.

"It's a pretty cool deal to accomplish knowing who's held the record," Curry said of breaking Allen's record.

 

He also captured eight rebounds and seven assists in the game.

 

Curry's 17 attempts also set a new Finals mark, surpassing the previous record of 15 attempts done twice in league history.

 

"Every shot that he takes, he has the business of making them," LeBron James said in postgame. "That's what he does. So we shouldn't be surprised or deflated at it. Take the ball out, move it forward and try to execute on the other end."
