All 25 players to make double-digit 3-pointers in a game have had at least one night when their outside shooting absolutley caught fire. Sometimes, these nights come out of nowhere, like with Brian Shaw, who was a career 30.4 percent shooter from beyond the arc. Other times, it makes a little more sense, as with Hall of Famer Ray Allen, one of the best NBA players of all time and the most prolific 3-point shooter in basketball history (for now, at least).

With the shift of the NBA game to outside shooting, many of the best players in basketball right now have accomplished the feat, such as James Harden, Paul George, and Kyrie Irving. But even with the proliferation of the 3-point shot, NBA players who made 10 or more 3-pointers in one game remain exceedingly rare. Players with multiple such games are even rarer. There are, in fact, only three: Klay Thompson, J.R. Smith, and in a surprise to no one, Stephen Curry.

Curry, of course, belongs in a separate category. Thompson, who holds the record with 14 3s in one game, has the second-most double-digit 3-pointer games of all time with five. Curry hit double-digit makes from 3-point land six times during just the 2018-19 season. He has done it 15 times overall, and at 43.6 percent, he has the highest career shooting percentage on 3-pointers of anyone to make 10 or more 3s in a game.

But with names like Kobe Bryant and Peja Stojakovic also on the list, Curry is not an automatic No. 1. So who is the best shooter of all time to make 10 or more 3-pointers in one game? Vote here, then head over to choose the best current 3-point shooters and the best 3-point shooters of all time.
