Steph Curry Shatters The Record For All-Time Three-Pointers Made

Steph Curry Shatters The Record For All-Time Three-Pointers Made

If there was even a shred of doubt that Stephen Wardell Curry II is the greatest shooter to ever grace an NBA court, he more than put that bed this past Saturday. After a blowout 119-93 victory for the Warriors over the Chicago Bulls, Curry has now officially set the record for the most three-pointers made in the 75-year history of the league.

Curry finished with a team-high 40 points and shot 9-of-17 from behind the arc. Within the opening two minutes of the game, Curry put up a shot to tie Hall of Fame guard Ray Allen’s career 3,358 three-pointers. Curry then went on to seal the deal with a contested shot from the top of the key over Alex Caruso in the second quarter.

Twelve games into his 13th season, Curry managed to break Allen’s record, despite playing 585 fewer games. This should be shocking news to absolutely no one. Due to him popularising the three-point shot, Curry is widely credited with changing the way basketball is played. Ray Allen shot a career clip of 40.2% from three… Steph currently sits at 43.2% at a much greater volume of shots. He is truly unmatched in this respect.

During the 2015-16 season, when Curry averaged 5.1 three-pointers per game, he set the single-season record with 402 three-point shots hit. Headed into Saturday’s game, Curry was averaging a similar number per game on over 40% shooting accuracy from 3; he is perfectly on pace to match that outing this year.

Curry currently sits at second for the projected league MVP for this season, right behind former-teammate Kevin Durant. The Warriors are currently 1st in the Western Conference, with a record of 11-2, and Curry’s game certainly isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. At the rate he’s going, the three-pointer record will likely have the name “Curry” alongside it for a long time to come.
