Reggie Miller’s awesome reaction to Stephen Curry passing him on all-time 3-points list
Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry just moved up to no. 2 all-time in three-pointers made, surpassing Hall of Famer Reggie Miller on Saturday night. The Indiana Pacers legend took to Twitter to extend his congratulations to Curry.
“I’ve had the best seat in the house in calling a lot of your games @StephenCurry30, simply GREATNESS!!! Congrats but the job isn’t done, Jesus Shuttlesworth is waiting on ya.. #GreatnessPersonified”

Of course, as Miller alluded to, Curry now just trails two-time NBA champion Ray Allen in the record books. The two-time NBA MVP officially tied Miller in the first half with his 2,560th triple, before draining the 2,561st on a corner triple at the 10:59 mark in the third quarter to move past the 5-time All-Star on the all-time three-pointers list.
A historic #SPLASH for SC30

As it stands, Curry currently has 2,562 triples to his name and still trails Ray Allen by over 300 three-pointers. Allen finished his career with 2,973 total made threes.
It’s really just a matter of time before Curry eventually takes his rightful place atop the all-time three-pointers list. The 3-time NBA champion, however, will likely catch up to Allen by the 2021-22 season.
Nevertheless, as historic as this night was for Curry, it wasn’t all smiles for the Dubs superstar. Curry and the Warriors were obliterated in Salt Lake City as the Jazz pretty much ended the game by the first half. Utah started the game on a 14-0 run and Golden State never really recovered from the early onslaught. The Jazz went on to build a 30-point lead by the intermission.
Curry and the Warriors will look to right the ship as they host the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday and Wednesday.
