LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Stephen Curry connected on 10 3-pointers as part of a 42-point performance Saturday night, helping the Golden State Warriors outlast the host Sacramento Kings 127-123 in a game that featured the most combined 3-pointers in NBA history.

The Warriors went 21-for-47 from beyond the arc while the Kings made a franchise-record 20 in 36 attempts.

The 41 3-pointers were one more than the previous record of 40 set in a game last season between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Curry, who finished 14-for-26 from the field and 10-for-20 on 3-pointers, scored 20 of his 42 points in the fourth quarter, none bigger than a three-point play off a Draymond Green assist that put Golden State ahead for good at 123-121 with 2:03 to go.

Kevin Durant backed Curry with 29 points and nine assists, while Klay Thompson added 20 points.

Buddy Hield buried a career-high eight 3-pointers in 13 attempts to account for most of his scoring on a 32-point night for the Kings.
