It's no surprise that the so called 'splash brothers', Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, are the best shooting back court in the NBA and they lead the league in most three pointers made by a duo.

They've hit 193 in 63 games combined, leading Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews who have hit 187 in 64.

Both athletes specialise in 3pt shots but it still comes as a shock when you realise they have hit more three pointers combined than some entire teams have.

To be exact, they are beating three teams. The Chicago Bulls (161), Charlotte Bobcats (162) and the last team in three pointers made in a game, the Memphis Grizzlies (146).

It seems as though the Splash Bros don't want to stop there. They are slowly creeping up to a lot of other teams and could very well take over soon enough.

The New Orleans Pelicans (195), Boston Celtics (203), Sacramento Kings (207), Detroit Pistons (210) and Oklahoma City Thunder (210) are next on their hit-list.

For some, this may not come as a surprise. In fact, the Warriors hit more threes than five teams last season and could go for more this time around. Stephen Curry hit 272 three pointers (a single season record for threes) and Klay Thompson netted 211 from downtown.

Together they dropped 283, the most ever made by two players.

If the players continue to shoot as well as they have been over 49 of the Warriors next games, they are on track to make 491 three pointers. Steph Curry is on track to make 253 and Thompson on his way to record 239.

Warriors coach Mark Jackson made it clear that Curry has the green light: "Thank God for the green light," he said of Curry following Golden State's victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, per the Associated Press.

"He's a guy we believe in. We're not going to tell him to stop shooting."

Smart move by Coach Jackson to let Curry go, and I'm sure he isn't too strict on Thompson letting it go from deep. Whatever Jackson says to the splash brothers, you can be sure they are one of the best shooting duos to every play the game.
