What is the NBA Playoffs single-game 3-point record? Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson headline list
Who has made the most 3-pointers in an NBA Playoffs game?

Only two players in NBA history have ever made 10 or more 3-pointers in an NBA Playoffs game.

No, Stephen Curry isn't one of them.

Curry has come close a couple of times, but his Splash Brother and Damian Lillard find themselves at the top of the record books for 3-pointers made in a single playoff game. Klay Thompson broke the record in 2016 with one of the most iconic performances in NBA history. He held onto it for a few years before Lillard one-upped him.

Records are made to be broken, but surpassing Lillard's single-game 3-point record in the playoffs certainly won't be easy.

What is the NBA Playoffs single-game 3-point record?

Damian Lillard holds the record for most 3-pointers made in a playoff game with 12.

Lillard broke the record in Game 5 of Portland's first-round matchup with Denver in the 2021 NBA Playoffs. He finished with 55 points on 12-for-17 shooting from 3-point range in the double-overtime loss.

Klay Thompson ranks second all-time with 11 3-pointers. That outburst was the start of "Game 6 Klay."

The most 3-pointers Stephen Curry has ever made in a playoff game is nine. He's done it twice: Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals and Game 1 of the 2019 Western Conference Finals.
