Stephen Curry Breaks All-Time 3-Point Record

Stephen Curry became the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-pointers made on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, eclipsing Ray Allen by nailing his 2,974th triple.

It took Ray Allen 1,300 regular season games to set the mark, but now Curry is in sole possession of the record. Curry, 33, needed 789 games.

Curry broke the record in Madison Square Garden in front of both Allen and Reggie Miller — the third most prolific 3-point shooter ever. Miller, one of Curry’s idols, helped revolutionize the sport with his long-range shooting.

Before Monday’s game, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said what makes Curry great is that he’s as good as Miller was without the ball and much better with it.

“There’s never been anybody like Steph,” Kerr said.

Miller, Allen and Curry shared a moment together before tipoff in the Garden.

“I got that, baby,” Curry said as he shot his hands up in the air at the postgame press conference podium.

Then, wearing a matching sweatshirt and hat that said 2,974 and counting, Curry walked away. On to more 3s, more records and more moments like Tuesday. Because Curry, as his teammate Draymond Green said, may still be getting better. The “and counting” addendum to the record is the most important part.
