One of the most incredible streaks in all of sports ended in a pitiful mess, as the greatest shooter sat on the bench with a towel draped over his head and fans chanted “We want tacos” relentlessly.
There will be no joy in Dubville, mighty Curry’s shots have all clanged out.
Stephen Curry’s streak of 157 games with at least one made-3-pointer ended Friday night at Staples Center as the Warriors, still high on their emotional beat-down of the Thunder the night before, were throttled by the Lakers 117-97. Curry finished 0-for-10 from 3-point range.
The streak featured 769 made-3-pointers during the streak, an absurd number. For context:
If you took away every three Steph made in his career except the 769 from the streak, he’d be 143rd all-time, just ahead of Arron Afflalo.

Curry could never find a groove. The Lakers played with energy and emphasis, ran shooters off deep and constantly disrupted passing lanes. The Warriors tallied 20 turnovers in the loss, their second of the season after losing just nine regular season games all year last season. Mostly, though, Curry just missed. It was just one of those nights, the kind he honestly has hardly had in two full years.
Curry finished with just 13 points but did tally 11 assists. Oddly, all his misses came from up top or on the left side. He did not attempt a 3-pointer from the right side of the floor.
The Warriors have a two-day break before facing the Pelicans on Monday. You can bet Curry will begin a new streak starting with that game, but for now, one of sports’ most amazing streaks has come to an end.
