Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard should not have been ejected from Monday night’s 114-98 win, the NBA said in a statement.

Entering Monday night, Curry had 34 3-pointers on Feb. 27, which, according to Elias Sports Bureau research, is the most on any date in his career. He entered the day shooting 74 percent (34-of-46) from 3-point range on this date. But against the 76ers, Curry’s 3-point shot was nowhere to be found. He finished 0-of-11, matching the NBA record for most missed 3-pointers without a make in a game. He shares it with Antoine Walker (2001-02 Boston Celtics) and Trey Burke (2014-15 Utah Jazz).
