How do you react if your 157-game streak of making at least one three-point shot is ended in a blowout defeat to a divisional rival?

Well, if you're Stephen Curry, you go out in the next game and set a new NBA record for threes made in a single outing. 

The two-time Most Valuable Player has a good history against the New Orleans Pelicans - who must be sick of the sight of the point guard by now - and added another memorable game to his collection at Oracle Arena as he dropped a stunning 13 threes on just 17 attempts.

Curry had the hot hand from early, sinking his first three in the opening five minutes. The unanimous MVP never looked back as he unleashed a barrage of range shooting on NOLA that included some mind-boggling buckets. 

Shooting in traffic, off the dribble, from 30-feet, the scoring champion did it all as the Oracle witnessed history. 

The record-setting shot came with just over two minutes remaning in the game; off a Draymond Green pass, Curry fashioned a second of space and released a quick shot over Solomon Hill and E'Twuan Moore. 

INEVITABLE

It never seemed in doubt that Steph would break the record eventually, but to do it just two days after going 0-10 in Los Angeles really was special.

The previous record had stood since January 2003 when Kobe Bryant dropped 12 from 18 attempts at the Staples Center against the Seattle SuperSonics. 

Donyell Marshall equalled the tally in March 2005, shooting 12-19 as the Toronto Raptors beat the Philadelphia 76ers.

However, the record, like many three-point records in the modern NBA, now belongs to Golden State's number 30.
