The Golden State Warriors' backcourt duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson splashed their way into the record books during the 117-105 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. 

Reigning Three-Point Contest champ Thompson finished with seven makes from behind the arc while the MVP chipped in with two of his own on a comfortable night at the Oracle Arena. 

The Splash Brothers became the first duo in NBA history to record a combined total of at least 600 buckets from deep. 

Curry leads the league with a single-season record of 350 made shots from his 778 attempts this season. He is shooting 45 percent from range and has had a season-high of 12 in a game on two separate occasions, which ties the all-time record alongside Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.

Thompson is second in the NBA in terms of made shots from behind the arc. He has a career-high 253 from 582 attempts and is shooting 43.5 percent, the highest in his short career from three-point territory. 

The Warriors set a single-season record for three-pointers made during their win over the Dallas Mavericks and looks set to surpass 1,000 by the end of the campaign. 

If they are to beat the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' 72-10 season, the buckets from the Splash Brothers and their teammates have to keep coming.
