The ‘Most three-pointers made in one postseason’ quiz

In an NBA postseason filled with fresh faces and up-and-coming teams looking to make a name for themselves, one sleeping juggernaut may be re-emerging. In Game 3 of their second-round matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies, the Golden State Warriors came out firing on all cylinders, hitting an eye-popping 17 of 32 shots from three-point range in a 142-112 win . Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole combined for nine of those threes, but that was overshadowed by a controversial play where Poole seemed to grab Ja Morant’s knee and pull backward, eventually forcing Morant to leave the game with a limp. After the game, Morant was clearly unhappy with how things transpired, while Thompson came to the defense of his young teammate. Regardless of whether or not Poole’s dirty play was intentional or not, this series has clearly kicked things up a notch with Game 4 taking place on Monday night in San Francisco. 

Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. So far this postseason, Klay, Steph and Poole rank second, third and sixth, respectively, in threes made. In league history, a player has made 50 three-pointers in a single postseason on 36 occasions, something all three players have a legitimate shot at if the Dubs can stay alive long enough. So with that in mind, how many of the NBA players with the most three-pointers made in a single postseason can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
