NBA: Curry sets 3-pointer mark as Warriors top Knicks
Stephen Curry broke the NBA record for most career 3-pointers Tuesday night, when he finished with a team-high 22 points as the visiting Golden State Warriors beat the New York Knicks 105-96.
Curry entered the game needing just two 3-pointers to break Ray Allen’s mark of 2,973 3-pointers and wasted no time making history. He drained two of his first three attempts, including the record-breaker — a 27-footer with 7:33 left in the opening quarter.
Curry broke the record in his 789th regular season game — the equivalent of more than six full seasons faster than Allen, who played 1,300 regular season games.
