Stephen Curry has officially done it. The Golden State Warriors superstar has finally overtaken legendary shooter Ray Allen in career made three-point shots in the regular season and the playoffs, and he did it in remarkable fashion.
Curry's record-breaking three came in the second quarter of Warriors' game against the Chicago Bulls. He hit a contested three (typical Stephen Curry things) over Bulls guard Alex Caruso to grab the record over the former Boston sharpshooter (via ESPN).
What's highly impressive about Curry's record is that he did it in significantly less time than Allen. StatMuse noted that the Warriors superstar reached Allen's record of 3, 358 three-point makes in 585 less games. That's a testament to how great Curry's shooting has been, that he beat the record in more than five seasons' worth of games.
Curry's exploits on offense have helped power the Warriors to a fiery 10 – 1 start. For his part, Curry is already liking what he sees from this new-look Warriors team.
“We’re pretty good. Obviously, have this long homestand, some teams with not great records, but we’re taking care of business, and eventually, you play everybody. So, it’s just a matter of controlling what you can control…I like where we’re at right now. ”
