Steph Curry just can’t be stopped at the moment. Sunday was further proof of that as he officially laid claim to the record for most three-pointers made in a single month. In April thus far, he has nailed 85 of them, and the scary part of that is that the month isn’t even over yet. He’s already three ahead of the previous record held by James Harden, and he has two more outings to try and extend the record. His ascent to the top of the chart comes after a performance in which drained seven of them in a 37-point showing against the Sacramento Kings in Golden State’s 117-113 victory. Draymond Green continued to play some of his finest basketball on the day as well, chipping in with 14 rebounds and 13 assists while adding eight points as well. That took the Warriors to 31-30 and one steps closer to being involved in the playoffs in some fashion.
Speaking of which, it looks like that could be set to happen for the Atlanta Hawks as well. Especially after the big win, they pulled off on Sunday night over the Milwaukee Bucks. The Hawks are currently without Trae Young, but that didn’t derail them from taking down a team in the Bucks that have dominated them in the last few seasons. Atlanta had lost both of the opening two meetings with the Bucks and looked like they were going to be swept away- as they usually are- but they had other ideas. Bogdan Bogdanovic was huge, dropping 32 points to lead all scorers, while ‘Sweet’ Lou Williams scored all 15 of his points, including four threes, in the fourth quarter to help them rally and win 111-104. That’s two in a row and four from their last five, keeping them in fifth place in the Eastern Conference as they chase down relevancy and a chance to make noise in the postseason. Giannis had a double-double, scoring 31 and grabbing 14 rebounds, but it was not enough to defeat the Hawks on this particular evening.
