Curry ties Finals record with 10 made free throws in a quarter
Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Records were challenged left and right in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, and Stephen Curry got in on the action.

And no, his had nothing to do with 3-pointers.

The Golden State Warriors point guard went 10-for-10 from the charity stripe in the opening frame Sunday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

That matched the record previously held exclusively by Paul Pierce, who accomplished the feat as a member of the 2008 title-winning Boston Celtics. It also tied a franchise playoff mark set by Sarunas Marciulionis in 1992.

In contrast, Curry didn't attempt a single free throw in all of Game 1. His 10 makes in the first quarter also exceeded his total for any game this postseason.

The Chef recorded his first-ever playoff triple-double with 32 points, 11 dimes, and 10 boards in the 132-113 victory as his Dubs remained undefeated in 14 games and inched closer to their second title in three years.

In the same contest, Curry's Splash Brother Klay Thompson moved up to ninth all time in Finals threes made. LeBron James passed Jerry West for second in Finals assists while tying Magic Johnson for most Finals triple-doubles.
