Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry set an NBA single-season record for three-pointers on Wednesday, surpassing Ray Allen's old mark of 269. Curry was 4 of 11 from three-point range in the Warriors' season finale and finished the season with 272 three-pointers.
"He had a helluva season,” Allen said before the Heat's game against the Magic. “Someone asked me a year or two ago and I said he was one of the guys that I thought had the potential of having the three-point record of the season or career because he reminds me of myself when I was in Seattle, bringing the ball up the floor, playing the open system, getting the ball in the air.
Curry has scored at least six three-pointers in 13 games this season. He was 11 of 13 from three-point range against the Knicks in February when he scored 54 points at Madison Square Garden. He had nine three-pointers against the Lakers last Friday in an epic game that saw Curry pour in 47 points. He then had seven three-pointers on Monday against the Spurs.“He’s had some big nights," Allen said. "You figure you’ve got to have some seven-three-pointer nights throughout the season and he’s done that, so I knew maybe five or six games ago at the rate that he’s playing that he would be able to break it.”
