Stephen Curryeclipsed 400 3-pointers in a season Wednesday, extending his own single-season record for 3's on a night theGolden State Warriorsbroke the NBA's single-season record for wins with their 73rd.

Curry made 10 3-pointers in a 125-104 winover the visitingMemphis Grizzlies, finishing the regular season with 402, a staggering number in that, before this season, no one had made as many as 300 3's in a year. Curry held the previous record for 3's in a season with 286, which he set last season.

Curry, who finished with 46 points, made six 3's in the first quarter and three straight during one jaw-dropping stretch that included a 31-footer well behind the top of the arc.

He had seven 3-pointers by halftime then hit No. 400 just 43 seconds into the third, draining a shot from the right corner before turning and saluting the roaring crowd.

"At a certain point, about eight minutes in the first quarter, I was able to toe the line a couple times, knock it down and things started to flow," Curry said. "I was searching for it at that point because I made a couple. Kind of let it come to me and then have some fun with it."

Curry has four games with at least 10 3-pointers this season; no one else in NBA history has that many games with 10 3-pointers in a career, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
