ESPN shares graphic on when Warriors star Steph Curry could break Ray Allen’s 3-point record
Curry added five more to his total on Friday night in the team’s convincing 146-109 victory over the Chicago Bulls, which moved him up to 2,285 made 3-pointers for his career.
So, as he keeps making shot after shot, ESPN decided to take a look at when he could potentially catch Allen if he continues at his current pace.
The result? Early on in the 2021-22 season.

Obviously, there’s no guarantee that it’ll actually happen during that season, but it’s clear that Curry is helping his cause by making tons of shots from beyond the arc.
Allen has 2,973 made 3-pointers for his career, so Curry still has some work to do to match that mark.
However, with the way that Curry can knock down 3-pointers in bunches, he could certainly eventually surpass the total and become the NBA’s best outside shooter ever.
Curry is averaging 28.8 points, 5.6 assists, and 5.2 rebounds on the season, and he has once again been a big driving force for Golden State.
The Warriors will return to the court on Sunday when they hit the road to take on the Dallas Mavericks.
