Would a win-now move make them clear championship favorites?With an NBA-best 15-2 record heading into Wednesday's clash with the 76ers, Golden State looks every bit like the dominant franchise that reached five straight Finals from 2015 to 2019. The hot start has quieted most of the chatter about the Warriors potentially making a major win-now move. One of the names that surfaces from time to time? Ben Simmons.

The 3-point shot, led primarily by the duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, has grown in frequency over the past decade in the NBA.

Just looking at the average 3-pointers attempted paints a very clear picture. Early in the 2021-22 season, the NBA's 75th year, the average 3-point shots attempted are 35.5, just shy of being double the average of 18.4 from the 2011-12 season.

The same can be seen in the number of single-game 3-point records broken over the past few years, both in the regular season and the playoffs.

Single-game Regular season record

For over a decade, Donyell Marshall and Kobe Bryant jointly held the record for most 3-pointers in a single regular-season game. In 2016, during his unanimous MVP season, Stephen Curry tied that tally.

Stephen Curry: Warriors superstar is on pace to smash his own single-season 3-point record – again

  Stephen Curry: Warriors superstar is on pace to smash his own single-season 3-point record – again Through 16 games, he's knocking down a career-high 5.4 3-pointers per game. At this rate, he's projected to knock down nearly 450 for the season which will shatter his previously owned record of 402, which is already superhuman compared to others. Out of his 92 3-pointers, 51 have come in just six games including four nine 3-pointer games (all four have come in the last eight games). With each of these wild high-volume nights from beyond the arc, he just keeps fine-tuning the 3-point records he owns. Take a look at one of his recent games in Cleveland.

This is a complete listing of National Basketball Association players who have scored 60 or more points in a game . This feat has been accomplished 77 times in NBA history.

In the five years since, three players have knocked down more than 12 3-pointers in a single-game. First, Curry broke his own record that same year before his teammate Klay Thompson set the NBA record with 14 at the start of the 2018-19 season.

A year later, Zach LaVine put his name alongside these greats when he knocked down 13.

  Devils claim Nathan Bastian off waivers from Kraken Welcome back, Nathan. The New Jersey Devils have claimed Nathan Bastian off waivers from the Seattle Kraken, bringing back the player they lost in the expansion draft. © Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports Bastian, 23, never seemed like a player that would make it through waivers, given the mix of size, draft pedigree and relative youth that he brings. A second-round pick in 2016, he played 41 games for the Devils last season, scoring ten points and forming a nice line with longtime teammate Michael McLeod.

Single-game Playoffs record

The impact of the 3-point shot in the postseason has been the same, albeit slightly delayed. All instances of a player knocking down more than nine 3-pointers have come after 2016.

Klay Thompson first broke then then long-time record of nine 3-pointers in a single playoff game, jointly held by multiple players (Jason Terry, Ray Allen, Rex Chapman, Vince Carter), when he knocked down 11 3-pointers during his epic Game 6 performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016.

This past postseason in 2021, Damian Lillard broke that record when he knocked down 12 en route to scoring 55 against the Denver Nuggets.

Prior to Lillard's eruption, Thompson held the record for most 3-pointers in a single game in both the regular season and playoffs.
