"We are a very good shooting basketball team," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. "We've got guys that can knock down shots. You talk about Klay Thompson and Steph Curry, in my opinion, they're the greatest shooting backcourt in the history of the game."
It's not the first time he's said it, and the stats do back him up. Many people have said Curry is possibly the best pure shooter they've ever seen, and Thompson is no slouch either. Those two combined for nearly 500 threes on the year. Curry broke the record set by Ray Allen.
NBA TV reacted to Jackson's statement. Baron Davis and Scott Mitchell both agreed that Curry-Thompson is the best shooting backcourt in league history. They didn't say best backcourt period.
