Michigan’s Nik Stauskas returned home to Canada this week and decided to release a new shooting video. In the video, Stauskas went 70-of-76 (92.1 percent) on his shots in the rain, including 46 straight makes. Needless to say, the exhibition was impressive. Stauskas’ show was so impressive that it even caught the attention of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, who just set the NBA record for most 3-pointers made in a season. Curry tweeted the video and gave a friendly challenge to Stauskas, who made 44 percent of his threes last season for the Wolverines. 3pt contest sometime @nstauskas11 ????? this is Impressive youtube.com/watch?v=yuH5mq… — Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) April 25, 2013 Stauskas was thrilled to hear from Curry and said he was down: @stephencurry30Thanks for the s/o bro! Im always down fot a 3pt contest, wouldn’t mind going up against the best shooter in the world!! — Nik Stauskas (@NStauskas11) April 25, 2013 I love waking up to a challenge by the best 3 point shooter in the world!!! Today might be a good day HA! — Nik Stauskas (@NStauskas11) April 25, 2013 Sounds like fun, but I would definitely have Curry in this one. He shot 45.3 percent on threes in the NBA this season, which was a higher percentage than Stauskas despite being at a further distance. Though, if the contest took place in Stauskas’ backyard, I might lean toward him because of the home court advantage. H/T MLive.com
