(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ANTONIO GONZALEZ AP Sports Writer At the end of the Golden State Warriors' practice Monday, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson lined up at opposite baskets and engaged in an unprecedented NBA shooting contest. The game was simple: first person to make seven shots from each of the five spots beyond the 3-point line wins. Or, first person to miss two shots in a row loses. Each won once. No tiebreaker needed. The outcome seemed fitting considering Golden State's backcourt tandem has shot its way to the top together this season. The pair has combined to make 444 3-pointers, surpassing the 435 Orlando's Dennis Scott and Nick Anderson hit in the 1995-96 season for the most by any duo in league history. Curry has made 247, while Thompson has hit 197 - both franchise records.
