Stephen Curry scored 37 points and set an NBA record for 3-pointers in a month at 85, as he inspired the Golden State Warriors past the Sacramento Kings 117-113 on Sunday night.
Kelly Oubre Jr.’s jumper with 1:42 left put Golden State ahead 112-111 before Richaun Holmes missed a pair of free throws at the 1:25 mark, then Draymond Green scored moments later.
Curry shot 11 of 21 with seven more 3-pointers after the two-time MVP rolled his right ankle during Friday’s win against Denver but didn’t consider it serious or seem hobbled.
His April total surpassed James Harden’s NBA record of 82 in November 2019.
Green had 14 rebounds and 13 assists in the Warriors’ fourth straight home win. That matches the team’s longest winning streak of the season at Chase Center, where Golden State drew 3,252 fans — up from 1,935 on Friday in the first game fans returned.
Meanwhile, Klay Thompson, who is close to beginning to run again as he rehabs from surgery for a torn right Achilles tendon, looked emotional on the sideline at one moment and Curry could be seen speaking to him.
