The Chicago Bulls began their second half of the 2018-19 season with an embarrassing effort against the Golden State Warriors. His 2,285 career 3s trail only Reggie Miller (2,560) and Ray Allen (2,973) in National Basketball Association history.
Curry finished with five threes and 28 points.
"It is a special accomplishment in terms of two guys I know who are trendsetters and did it for many many years", Curry said.
"Obviously, everything is officiated differently towards me", Portis said softly before Saturday night's game against the Jazz. He made three from long range in the first 70 seconds of the rematch and the rout was on.
Curry wasn't even the most unsafe long-range shooter on his own team in this game as Klay Thompson picked up where he left off on his record-setting night in Chicago earlier this season by making seven more 3-pointers and scoring 30 points.
Even the Bulls' Twitter account had no words for their play during the first quarter. While accusing reigning back-to-back Finals MVP Kevin Durant of intentionally trying to hurt him when the Bulls faced the Golden State Warriors on Friday, Portis also took a jab at officiating in general.
Zach LaVine scored 29 points to lead the Bulls, who have lost six straight games. "I don't know what it was. I am disappointed in that". "I always play with an edge, play hard, kind of make these facial expressions to make it seem like I was mad all the time on the court, so obviously there's going to be some carryover at one point when I started playing a lot, but it's something I couldn't control".
Bulls: Chicago had its largest first-quarter deficit in franchise history. He scored 16 points.
Scoring 109 points while shooting 44.9% from the field and making three's at a 45.0% clip with just 13 turnovers, the Bulls' performance wasn't particularly bad.
Warriors: The 26-point lead after the opening quarter was the biggest for the Warriors since they led Sacramento by 30 points on November 2, 1991.
