It was an emotional moment in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night as Stephen Curry finally broke the record for all-time three-pointers made. The Golden State Warriors superstar has received congratulatory messages from all over, and this time around, Memphis Grizzlies stud Ja Morant has chimed in with his own praise for the greatest shooter of all time.
Morant took to Twitter to send out his acclamation for Curry’s epic milestone:
congrats @StephenCurry30 🐐 in the garden too .. dats tough 🔥 https://t.co/JjpN7xUDx9

Morant took notice of Curry breaking the record inside one of the most iconic arenas in the entire world. The New York Knicks were hosting Curry and the Warriors on Tuesday and it was only fitting that Steph made history in the mecca of basketball. There probably could not have been a better narrative for Steph.
For his part, Morant has been out of action for an extended period now after being placed under the league’s health and safety protocols. The Grizzlies star was in the process of rehabbing a sprain in his left knee before he was required to quarantine. It looks like Morant is going to be returning to action sooner rather than later, though, and he should be available when the Warriors host the Grizzlies on December 23.
