Golden State Warriors player Stephen “Steph” Curry continues to impress with his shooting technique. Recently, the club released a video of Curry scoring 103 three-pointers in a row. And the video did not even get all the scores.
– He is the best three-point shooter of all time, says basketball expert Frederik Gnatt.
– If you put money on who could do this of all the shooters in the world, then it would have been the lowest odds on Curry, he continues.

– World class
Curry is said to have scored 105 three-pointers in a row during training, but the video “only” got the last 103 goals.
– Even if it is “only” in a training session and without pressure from opponents, it is still incredibly impressive. The sporting level is simply world class, says Gnatt.
Gnatt has played basketball for a number of years. Like Curry, he played Point Guard. The player in this position is usually the one to score the three points in basketball.
What impresses the basketball expert the most is Curry’s ability to make the same move over and over again.
– Curry is at the top of the world in doing the same movement again. To achieve this, he must have exactly the same movement with exactly the same force in the shot time and time again, says Gnatt.
– Without being able to say for sure, I might think that this will be a bit the same as hitting a drive in golf time after time, says Gnatt.
Smashed his previous record
As mentioned, Stephen Curry is already known for his solid shot arm. He holds the NBA record for most three-pointers in a season with an incredible 402 hits.
Now he impresses once again by smashing his personal record of the most three points scored in a row.
“I think his previous record was 77. It’s insane,” Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr told NBA.com, after Curry set a new record with 105 hits.
Golden State Warriors assistant coach Bruce Fraser served Curry’s passes. He got the feeling that something special could happen.
– It was incredibly cool. 105 three-pointers in a row. I realized it could be special already around 30. Fantastic, says Fraser to the same website.
– I was focused on delivering good passes. I was nervous, continues a laughing Fraser.
