Stephen Curry wrote himself into history last night as he scored 13 three-pointers against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Golden State Warriors point guard has toyed with breaking the record a number of times throughout his career and last night at the Oracle Arena finally saw him snatch the accolade away from Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.

The aforementioned duo had been the only two players in history to make 12 threes in a single game up until Curry achieved the same number during last season's overtime win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.


Marshall joined Kobe at the top of the standings in 2005 as he dropped 38 points for the Toronto Raptors in a win over the Allen Iverson-led Philadelphia 76ers.

Before that night at the Air Canada Centre, Bryant had been the standalone player on 12 since 2003, when he put on a range shooting clinic against the Seattle SuperSonics at the Staples Center.

Now his record has been vanquished, we took a look back at the night Kobe shot the lights out in the City of Angels.

The legendary game came in the twilight of Kobe and Shaquille O'Neal's time together in Los Angeles. Coming off the back of their three-peat, the Lakers were 14-20 and struggling to find their rhythm. But there were no such issues for the Black Mamba on this night.

He only attempted one free throw on the night, picking up 36 of his 45 points from beyond the arc. Even though the record is gone, his performance will live long in Lakers memory.
