Golden State Warriors’ star Steph Curry has a challenge for Sabrina Ionescu.

While he wasn’t named a starter for the NBA All-Star Game on Thursday, he hinted at his plans for at least one event during the weekend in Indianapolis. Curry is expected to be named a reserve for the All-Star game when it gets announced next week.

During a discussion with teammate Brandin Podziemski, Curry said that he might go up against Ionescu in the 3-point contest.

Ionescu scored 37 points in the WNBA’s 3-point contest last summer, besting Curry’s 31 points. The 37 points is an all-time record for both the WNBA and the NBA.

“Do you know who holds the record for the most points in a 3-point competition?” Curry asked his teammate, who answered correctly.

“I think I’ve got to bring her out,” he continued. “We gotta settle this once and for all.”

Ionescu later responded to the call-out, writing on social media that she accepted the challenge.

“Let’s getttttt it!! See ya at the 3 pt line,” she wrote.
