Knicks broke the NBA record for most 3 pointers in a regular season (old record 842).
Curry and Thompson most 3 pointers by back court in a season (old record 435).

Which is more impressive?

Normally I tend to place team accomplishments over individual(s) ones, but I think the Dubs record is more impressive.

If Curry breaks the Ray Allens record then I'm going with the Warriors.

You just made the point for the exact opposite. When you are a team you have a much better chance for breaking the record. At one point Novak, J kidd and Felton can be shooting lights out thus helping the cause. At a different point in the season Kidd and Felton could decrease their efficiency but at the same time Melo and JR could be increasing theirs at an astonishing rate which would make up for the Feltons and Kidds decrease. IMO Thompson and Curry staying this consistent over the course of the entire season deserves more merit when compared to the entire Knicks squad who have a plenty of people who can step up when someone is missing. I'm not trying to downplay what the Knicks have done because it is very impressive but don't overlook what Klay and Curry have done either. In short there is no wrong answer.

Curry + Thompson = 42.5%
Knicks as a team = 37.7%

Not a Knicks hater but its the Warriors... The Knicks and Rockets (most likely) will break the 3 point record as a team although the Knicks will end up with more than Houston. The team 3-point record is going to start to fall alot now considering how many more 3 pointers teams are taking than they did in the past. The Curry and Thompson one is also insane that they are shooting almost 43% from 3s.

Wow, both are nice, but I'll go with Clay and Curry.

GSW, especially Curry's insane % considering the volume attempts.

Knicks isn't really impressive, they've shot a good %, but the entire NBA in general is shooting a TON more 3's these days. Advanced stats say 3's and shots in the paint are the most efficient shots, and that's what the league is moving toward. We'll see teams hit 1,000 3's soon.

Both are impressive, but I'm going to have to say our backcourt only because they are shooting 43% from behind there.

(responding to your question on whether or not I want to bet) No because I think we're probably going to lose. Especially now that we've clinched and are starting to play Andres Biendrins minutes. :puke:

lol, please
