In 28 games this season, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry have combined for 172 threes. Between the two of them, they attempt 15 threes per game, and knock down 6.5.

Westbrook's defining imprint on the game seconds before the shot when he flung into the air and lunged for an offensive rebound that would have otherwise belonged to the 6'11 Jermaine O'Neal.
