Curry's 3-point record by the numbers (1:31)

Steph Curry set the record by connecting on a 3-pointer in 128 straight games. Check out where his dominance stands in history. (1:31)

Entering Saturday night's showdown with Oklahoma City (ABC, 8:30 ET), Steph Curry is a mere 11 3-pointers away from breaking his own single-season record.

With a whopping 25 games left on Golden State's schedule.

‎Curry is on pace to sink 397 3-pointers for the season if he indeed plays in those final 25 games, which inevitably got ESPN Stats ‎& Info ace Micah Adams going even deeper with his number-crunching.

By how much is Curry obliterating the pace he established last season when he sank a then-record 286 3s?

According to Adams' math, Curry's current pace is the equivalent of ...

  • Breaking Barry Bonds’ single-season record of 73 home runs by hitting 101 homers.

  • Breaking Eric Dickerson’s single-season record of 2,105 rushing yards by rushing for 2,921 yards.

  • Breaking Peyton Manning’s record of 55 passing touchdowns in a single season by throwing for 76 TDs.

  • Breaking Wayne Gretzky’s single-season mark of 92 goals by scoring 127.

  • Breaking Wilt Chamberlain’s single-season record of 50.4 PPG by averaging 70.0 PPG.

  • Breaking the 1971-72 Lakers' record of 33 consecutive wins by winning 45 regular-season games in a row.

  • Breaking Joe DiMaggio’s record of 56 consecutive games with a hit by recording a hit in 77 straight games.

In other words ...

What Steph Curry is doing from the 3-point line this season is reminiscent of Babe Ruth going from 29 homers in 1919 to 54 in 1920. Or ‎Gretzky going from 164 total points in 1980-81 to 212 in 1981-82. Or ‎Wilt going from 38.4 points per game in the 1960-61 season to 50.4 PPG in 1961-62.

Ridiculous, isn't it?

And seemingly Stephortless, too, as the TNT guys like to say.
