Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry hit 13 three-pointers against the New Orleans Pelicans to beat the single-game record he tied last season.
The two-time reigning MVP was in stunning form during Monday's 116-106 win for the Warriors.
He was 13-of-17 from three-point range.
Curry, who had been averaging a modest 23.2 points per game before Monday, already had 10 three-pointers through the first three quarters, but he re-entered the game in middle of the fourth and hit three more in quick succession to break the record.
Astonishingly, Curry has now reached double-digit three-pointers seven times in a single game in his career.
He also became just the third player in NBA history to hit double-digit three-point field goals after netting zero in the previous game.
Curry finished the game with 46 points, five rebounds and five assists.
