Staff Writer

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors has tied an NBA record, making a 3-pointer in his 127th consecutive regular-season game.

Curry, the reigning NBA MVP, made a 3-pointer on his first shot of the evening just 78 seconds into the Warriors' 118-112 win over Miami on Wednesday night. He shares the mark with Atlanta's Kyle Korver and has a chance to take the record outright when Golden State plays at Orlando on Thursday. Dana Barros' streak of 89 games was the league record prior to Korver's and remains third best, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
