The Golden State Warriors locked up the sixth seed in the West and head back into the playoffs following a 6- year absence from the postseason. A big difference for the franchise this year was having their point guard, Stephen Curry available to them for the whole season. Steph is one of the purest shooters in the game and proved it this season shattering the record for most three-pointers made in a season.
The previous mark was set in the 2005-2006 season by Ray Allen when he played for the Seattle Supersonics, throwing up 269 tres. Curry hit 270 during the Warriors final game of the season against the Portland Trailblazers on Wednesday.
Check out highlights of Steph Curry’s march to a record breaking season.

The playoffs are coming, which means NBA fans will be bombarded with talk about LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant. And with good reason. April, May and June are when true stars shine and pretend ones fade, and all three of those bona fide superstars have experience with both triumph and failure.
