    Stephen Curry on Saturday broke another record, his own, and will have shattered it by the end of the season.

    In the fourth quarter against the Thunder, Curry made his 11th 3-pointer of the game, and 287th of the year, breaking the NBA single-season record.

    The reigning MVP originally set the record in 2014-15 with 286.

    The Warriors have 24 games left in the season after facing Oklahoma City. Curry is averaging a career-high 5.0 3-pointers per game this season.

    Earlier in the week, Curry shot his way onto another page in the NBA record book.

    The Warriors' star drilled a 3-pointer with 5:45 left in the first quarter Thursday night in Orlando to extend to 128 his streak of games with at least one 3-pointer, breaking the record set by Hawks guard Kyle Korver.
