Stephen Curry made an NBA-record 13 3-pointers on the way to 46 points, grabbing back the spotlight from new Golden State star Kevin Durant in the Warriors’ 116-106 victory against the winless New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night.

The two-time reigning MVP hit 13 of 17 3s in his seventh career game with double-digit 3-pointers and shot 16 for 26 overall. He raised his right arm and pounded his chest when he reached the record with 2:23 to go.

It was his first 40-point performance this season after he led the NBA with 13 such games last season. Fans chanted “M-V-P!”

Durant finished with 22 points.

Klay Thompson scored 24 points as the Splash Brothers looked far more in sync from long range at last.
