In a historic turn of events on Sunday, NBA superstar Steph Curry concluded an impressive 268-game streak of consecutive games with at least one made 3-pointer. The Golden State Warriors faced off against the Trail Blazers, securing a victory despite Curry's unusual off night.

Steph Curry's extraordinary 3-point streak, a record in the NBA, reached its pinnacle at 268 games. However, all good things must come to an end, and this remarkable run concluded after a hard-fought win over the Trail Blazers. Unfortunately, Curry was struggling to find his rhythm on the court.

The last time Curry failed to make a 3-pointer was on November 8th, 2018, making this recent game a significant departure from his usual stellar performance. On December 17th, 2023, Curry's shooting woes were evident as he went 2 of 12 from the field, missing all eight of his 3-point attempts. This marked the end of an era for Curry's consecutive 3-point streak, a testament to the unpredictability of professional sports.

Despite his shooting struggles, Curry demonstrated resilience and an unwavering commitment to his team. Instead of letting a slow offensive night define the game, Curry turned his focus to other aspects of his play. Notably, he contributed with a game-high tying 8 assists, showcasing his versatility and ability to impact the game beyond scoring.

In addition to his impressive assists, Curry played a pivotal role in the team's success by earning a team-high plus-14. This statistic reflects his positive influence on the court, emphasizing that even on a challenging night, Curry's overall contribution was vital to the Warriors' victory. As a result, the team's record improved to 12-14 for the season.
