We already knew he was the best shooter of all time in the NBA, but Stephen Curry formalized it for the history books. He broke the record for the number of successful 3-point baskets in regular seasons, previously owned by Ray Allen.
It took the Warriors star to score two long-range shots to achieve this feat. What he applied to do during the victory against the New York Knicks (105-96), from the 1st quarter, in less than five minutes and in three attempts, under the eyes of his glorious elder, as well as Reggie Miller, now 3rd in this prestigious ranking, and his father Dell. He now has 2,977 three-point baskets on his counter.
A moment of intense emotion in the legendary Madison Square Garden, which gave him a huge ovation. So much so that the match stopped for five minutes.
More than a single record in sight
The double MVP 2015 and 2016, also at the top of the ranking for the largest number of baskets with three points scored, regular seasons and playoffs combined, has only one record that escapes him to fill all the boxes. That of 14 shots scored in a single match by his teammate Klay Thompson.
