With 44 seconds remaining in the third quarter of Monday's road game against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Golden State Warriors' sharpshooter Stephen Curry splashed home his fifth trey of the night off an assist from Andre Iguodala in transition.

That bucket, which brought Golden State to within three on the scoreboard, was Curry's 2,000th career 3-pointer, making him the eighth player in NBA history to reach that milestone.
