Dell Curry knows a thing or two about shooting the basketball.

Steph Curry's father made 1,245 3-pointers in his career -- the 54th most in NBA history.

On Monday morning, Dell joined KNBR 680 to talk about Steph's breakthrough from distance in Game 3.

"Obviously you want to keep shooting and then you want to remember that you're the best in the world at what you do," Dell explained. "Gotta give Houston some credit -- they ran him off the 3-point line. That's why he was getting to the rim because they would not allow him to get open looks...

"All it takes sometimes is one game, couple shots to go down, get some transition buckets and then you're off and running.

"Houston -- their game plan was good the first couple of games at home. But the MVP, a shooter like Steph, it's really hard to keep him in check for three games in a row."

Curry was held in check in the first half -- 9 points on 3-for-11 from the field, including 1-for-7 from deep.

He erupted for 18 points in the third quarter and finished the second half with 26 points on 10-for-12 overall.

And in case you were curious, Steph's daughters -- Riley and Ryan -- call their grandpa Dell...

"G-Daddy."
