Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole make NBA 3-pointer history
JP's 200th 3-pointer puts him, Steph, Klay in exclusive club originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The Splash Brothers -- Steph Curry and Klay Thompson -- arguably are the most prolific shooting duo in NBA history, and for the last few seasons, they've had a worthy running mate in Jordan Poole.
Golden State's three sharpshooters joined an exclusive club when Poole made his 200th 3-pointer of the season Friday night against the San Antonio Spurs at Chase Center.
Poole, Curry and Thompson now are the second trio of teammates to make at least 200 3-pointers each in a season, joining James Harden, Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson of the 2016-17 Houston Rockets.
On that 3, Jordan Poole gives Golden State three players w/200 or more 3s this season. (Steph and Klay, too). Warriors are just the 2nd team to have three players reach 200 3s in the same season and first since Houston in 2016-17 â by James Harden, Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson.

Thompson entered Friday's game with an NBA-leading and career-high 278 3-pointers, while Curry began the night with 250 3-pointers.
Poole has a chance to join Thompson by setting his own career high for 3-pointers, which stands at 211 made last season.
Harden, Gordon and Anderson combined to make 712 3-pointers during the 2016-17 season, and the Warriors' trio already has surpassed that number with 727 and counting entering Friday's game.
