(WTNH)–The record stood for 11 years, but on Monday night, Donyell Marshall’s name was stripped from the NBA history books. His record of 12 three-pointers in an NBA game was surpassed by Golden State’s Stephen Curry.
Marshall was tied for the most threes in a game with Kobe Bryant. The former UConn standout and current Central Connecticut State University head coach did it with the Toronto Raptors, drilling 12 out of 19 threes and putting up a career-high 38 points.
Marshall says records were meant to be broken.
“People ask me if I’m down. I’m not down. I had it 11 years. You have to understand every time somebody gets close, they usually show the top two or three players, so every time they show it, they’re going to have to show me second or third. It doesn’t matter–I’ll still be known up there.”
Marshall missed only seven shots in that game.
