Warriors star Stephen Curry is first player to reach 400 playoff 3-pointers

Stephen Curry, Warriors

Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry is in a league of his own.

The Warriors superstar reaches new heights in the playoffs, as he became the first and only player in the history of the NBA to make 400 career 3-pointers in the postseason.

He achieved the feat in Game 5 of their first round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers. Curry went 4-for-5 from beyond the arc and finished with 24 points in the game on top of three rebounds and four assists.

Unfortunately for the two-time NBA MVP and the Dubs, the Clippers won the game 129-121 and managed to extend the series to Game 6.

Stephen Curry already leads the all-time playoff 3-pointers list, with the retired Ray Allen and Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James the closest at 385 and 370 respectively.

Oft considered as the greatest shooter of all time, Curry’s latest shooting feat would only further solidify his place in the pantheon of NBA greats.

With the playoffs still in the first round, Curry still have plenty of chances to add to his tally. If the Warriors manage to go deep this postseason and make the playoffs again next year, it’s not impossible for Steph to break the 500 3-pointers threshold.
