  • Stephen Curry of the Warriors, who are in the process of moving to The City, set an NBA record for most 3-point shots in a season this year.

The Warriors will be feted Tuesday at San Francisco City Hall after their playoff run ended last week.

Mayor Ed Lee will declare Tuesday as Golden State Warriors Day in San Francisco, according to the Mayor’s Office.

Lee also is scheduled to give the key to The City to star player Stephen Curry in honor of setting the NBA record for the most 3-pointers in a season. Curry hit that record mark in April.

The Warriors’ playoff run ended Thursday night when they fell to the San Antonio Spurs at home. The 94-82 win by the Spurs at Oracle Arena clinched the Western Conference semifinal series 4-2.

The civic celebration in San Francisco for the Oakland-based team comes at a time when the Warriors are in the process of attempting to build a new arena in The City. The team has a goal of moving into the facility at Piers 30-32 on the waterfront at the start of the 2017-18 season.

The ceremony Tuesday at City Hall is a free event, with limited space available on a first-come, first-served basis. The event is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. Curry, along with team management, is the only player slated to attend.
