Stephen Curry is well on his way to being regarded as one of the greatest shooters of all-time, particularly from three-point range.

Curry set the NBA record for three-pointers made in a regular season with 272 back in 2013. He surpassed that record in 2015 with 286, and again in 2016 with 402.

He has also broken the record for combined three-pointers alongside Klay Thompson three times.

However, last night against the L.A. Lakers, one of Curry's records came to an unfortunate close.

After the Warriors point guard went 0-of-10 from three-point land in the Dubs 117-97 loss at the Staples Center, Curry went scoreless from three for the first time in a regular-season game since Nov 11, 2014, against the San Antonio Spurs, snapping his record at 157 games.

"That was a cool little ride," Curry said. "Would have loved to finish my career making one every game, but hey, start a new one. What was it, like two years? Kind of weird not to make one, but I will keep shooting."

The longest active streak in the NBA now belongs to Clippers sharpshooting guard J.J. Redick, who has 61 straight games with a three-pointer.

It is still a phenomenal run from Curry and given the fact that he is only 28-years-old, chances are he has plenty of time to better his achievement and cement his legacy in shooting.
