Klay Thompson joins Stephen Curry, LeBron James as only players with 100 made Finals 3s

Klay Thompson's historic 3-point shooting made two more marks in the record books during Game 5 of the 2022 NBA Finals.

Klay Thompson climbs to 2nd all time in Finals 3-pointers with 104, trailing just Steph Curry (146).

The 3-point shot has become a historically prominent aspect of the NBA Finals, thanks to the growth of the long ball and the recent domination of the Golden State Warriors.

Thompson’s first 3-pointer of Game 5 was also the 1,000th postseason 3 made by him or Curry. The achievement highlights the duo, long nicknamed the “Splash Brothers,” and its long-distance dominance since making its playoff debut in 2013.

As ESPN Stats and Information noted, the Curry-Thompson combo entered Game 5 boasting a combined 999 3-pointers in their playoff careers. That total is more than nine active NBA franchises: the Charlotte Hornets, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, Washington Wizards, Memphis Grizzlies, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers.

Monday’s victory put Thompson, Curry and the Warriors one win away from their fourth championship in eight years.
