Stephen Curry achieved a milestone that he’s been aiming for nearly his entire career. Sinking a three against the New York Knicks, Curry surpassed NBA legend Ray Allen’s total of 2,973 to become the all-time leader in total 3-pointers made during the regular season. Curry set the 3-point record in his 789th career regular season game, 511 contests fewer than Allen (1,300) appeared in.
In addition to the all-time 3-point mark, Curry has now hit a three in 152 consecutive regular season games played, the second-longest 3-point streak in NBA history behind only his own previous streak of 157 consecutive games. Curry also holds the NBA record for most career 3-point field goals made in the postseason (470) and most threes in the NBA Finals (121). He owns four of the top five single-season 3-point marks and is the only player in NBA history to hit more than 400 threes in a single campaign (402 in 2015-16). Curry previously held the NBA record for threes in a single game with 13 before being eclipsed by teammate Klay Thompson (14).
Curry entered tonight’s game with averages of 27.0 points (tied for second in the NBA), 5.6 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.65 steals in 34.3 minutes per game. He was named Western Conference Player of the Month for games played in October/November, his 10th career monthly accolade and third consecutive honor dating back to last season.
About 2,200 of Curry’s threes have been logged since his partnership began with Under Armour.
In the lead-up to the record, Under Armour provided three Impact Grants. One provided basketball registration fees for 45 youth through a partnership with Every Kid Sports, another funded basketball programs in each of the 30 NBA cities in partnership with Good Sports, and the third provided 15 coaches training workshops in NBA cities through Positive Coaching Alliance by the end of the 2021-2022 season.
