The Golden State Warriors set another NBA record on Friday night as they beat the Dallas Mavericks 128-120 at the Oracle Arena. 

The Dubs ended the game with 21 made three-pointers and it helped them set a new record for shots from deep in a single season. 

They have executed 938 threes in 72 games as they sit on a 65-7 record. At their current pace, the Warriors are on course to finish the campaign with 1,068 buckets from behind the arc.

It has been a simply incredible season for the defending champions, who are utilising the three to the best of its ability. 

They have sunk at least 20 threes in a game five times this season. To put that into context, the rest of the NBA combined has only achieved that tally twice. 

The Splash Brothers Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are a huge part of the record and have combined for a total of 594 as the two leading shooters from deep in the league.

Thirteen different players on the Golden State Warriors roster have nailed a shot from deep; even center Andrew Bogut is a perfect one from one. 

The Warriors are using the three-point shot in a way the NBA has never seen before and will be hoping their pinpoint accuracy from deep can lead them to back-to-back championship rings.
