There's a reason why they call them the "Splash Brothers."

During Wednesday's game between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, Klay Thompson made his 200th 3-pointer of the season.

Thompson is now only the second player in NBA history to make at least 200 3-pointers in seven consecutive seasons.

The other player to do so? Thompson's backcourt teammate Stephen Curry.

Thompson's rookie season is the only one in which he didn't make 200 or more 3-pointers. At the age of 29, he now ranks 18th all-time in 3-pointers made and 14th all-time in 3-point percentage.

Thompson entered Wednesday's game averaging 22.4 points per game on the season, the highest rate of his career. He's also knocking down 3.1 3-pointers per game this season, the third-highest mark of his career.

With how well Thompson and Curry are still playing, there are plenty more records for them to set and break on the horizon.
