Curry surpasses Ray Allen’s previous haul to set new record.
Stephen Curry added 15 points in the Golden State Warriors’ 99-88 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night, and also created a slice of history in the process.
The 25-year-old entered the game trailing Ray Allen by one three-pointer, but went 4-for-11 from beyond the arc to move his season total to 272, three more than Allen’s previous mark.
Check out his show from three-point range on Wednesday which firstly saw him tie the record, before setting the new total in the second quarter:
Allen’s record had stood since the 2005-06 season when he was playing in Seattle, but Curry now holds the title after what has been a great year for Golden State.
Widely recognised as one of the best, if not the best, shooters in the game, Curry will now be looking to continue his impressive form in the play-offs. The Warriors face the Denver Nuggets in the opening round and will be looking to their point guard to inspire them moving forward.
