Warriors guard Brandon Rush'south 3-pointer in the closing moments of Game four was the record-breaking shot:

The Warriors shot 21-of-40 from downtown (52.5 %&#forty-one; in Game four. Klay Thompson knocked down seven treys, Draymond Green hit four, Andre Iguodala made three and Harrison Barnes swished in two. Curry, who set the NBA regular season record for 3-pointers with four hundred two, shot 1-of-7 from three before exiting the game with a right knee sprain.

The previous record was twenty made threes, a label the Cleveland Cavaliers tied in their Game two triumph over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. Exterior of the Cavs and Warriors, the only other two teams to hit twenty 3-pointers in a game were the two thousand eleven Dallas Mavericks and the one thousand nine hundred ninety-six Seattle Supersonics.

It'south beautiful crazy that the Warriors were able to set the record with Curry lost most of the game. And with the way they've been shooting all year, it wouldn't be surprising if they top their own record later on in the postseason.
