In addition to defending the 3-point shot well, the Warriors have shot threes well all season as well. The Warriors are the best three-point shooting team in the NBA, as they shot 40.3% from behind the arc for the season. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are a large part of this feat. Curry shot 45.3% from the three-point line, and Thompson shot 40.1% for the season. In addition to the Splash Brothers, Jarrett Jack shot 40.4% from the three-point line, and Harrison Barnes has also shown that he can make some threes, as he shot 36% from the three-point line. The Warriors also became the best three-point shooting team in the league without Brandon Rush, which is impressive since he shot 45.2% from the three-point line last year.
