Stephen Curry made some more history in Golden State’s win over Chicago on Friday.
In draining nine 3-pointers against the Bulls, Curry has now made a total of 3,366 3-pointers in his NBA career, regular season and playoffs combined. Why is that notable? It moves him past Ray Allen (3,358) for the most all-time.
Curry did it in 585 fewer games than Allen.
The 470 3s Curry has made in the playoffs is already the most all-time. The 2,896 3s he’s made in the regular season, meanwhile, is the second-most all-time, trailing only Allen.
Curry is 77 3-pointers away from tying Allen’s regular-season 3-point record and 78 away from overtaking him. At his current pace, Curry will pass Allen in 15 more games.
Curry is off to a scorching start this season. Through 12 games, he’s averaging 28.4 points, 6.4 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals on .453/.400/.950 shooting splits. He scored 40 points against the Bulls, marking his third 40-point game of the season. He’s also now made nine 3-pointers twice this season. Nobody else in the league has one such game.
Curry’s play has powered the Warriors to an 11-1 record, giving them the best record in the league. The Warriors currently rank second in offensive efficiency (112.8) and first in defensive efficiency (98.7). Their net rating (14.1) is the best in the league by a mile.
Following an eight-game homestand, Golden State will play its next four games on the road, starting Sunday in Charlotte.
