Stephen Curry leads the NBA when it comes to at least seven three-pointers made in an NBA playoff game, according to Crazy Stats Facebook.

Golden State Warriors superstar Curry made seven three-point shots in Game 4 against the Portland Trail Blazers in Oregon on Monday. The 29-year-old shot 7-of-11 from beyond the arc on his way to recording 37 points in the match.
