After hitting a game-high 50 points and capturing All-Star MVP honors in Team LeBron’s 163-160 victory over Team Durant, Stephen Curry left a trail of records in Cleveland.

The Warriors superstar guard set new records for the most 3-pointers scored in an All-Star quarter (6), half (8), and game (16), as well as surpassing James Harden on the midseason classic’s overall made 3s list (39).

Curry’s performance peaked in the third quarter when the league’s all-time 3-pointer shooter sank a stunning five attempts from deep in 128 seconds. The eight-time All-Star had the stunned Cleveland crowd cheering before and after each shot.

Curry also broke the All-Star Game record with his 13th three-pointer and the regular-season record with his 15th, both before the third quarter was done.

“It’s pretty special, obviously being back in Ohio,” Curry said moments after receiving the first Kobe Bryant MVP Trophy. “The trophy is very special. Very humble, very blessed.”

This year, the Kobe Bryant Trophy was revamped and presented to Curry in front of an audience that also included Bryant’s wife, Vanessa. He earned 11 of the 12 votes cast for the honor, while James received the other via a fan vote.

On a night when both players were acknowledged as legends of the game during a halftime ceremony honoring the NBA’s 75th-anniversary team, Curry and LeBron showcased why they remain today’s finest players.

The return of the All-Star Game to Cleveland was anticipated to be James’ night. He is the Cavaliers’ greatest player, having guided them to their only NBA title in 2016. Curry, who was born in the same Akron hospital as James, took the stage.
