Every time Stephen Curry has touched the ball over the past month, it's been magic. So it shouldn't surprise anyone that he's broken an NBA record, right? Well, (not) surprise: he broke an NBA record.

The Golden State Warriors star hit seven three-pointers against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday, bringing his April total to 85 —more than any NBA player has ever had in a single month. He easily broke James Harden's previous record of 82, and he did it in style. Some of his threes on Sunday were mind-boggling.

Curry set the new record, but he and the Warriors still have two games left in April. He's been averaging 6.5 three-pointers a game this month, so if he does slightly better than that over both games, he could hit 100 three-pointers in one month. 

Curry's April is incredible on all levels

From start to (almost) finish, Curry has had a phenomenal April both on and off the court. He's been playing at an MVP level, breaking both Warriors and NBA records, and continuing his commitment to social justice. Here's a quick trip through his month.

He did all that while averaging 38.1 points over 13 games. There are star athletes, and then there's Steph Curry, who is operating on a whole different level.
