Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry and 3-pointer in the sport go hand in hand. He has gained supremacy scoring the 3-pointers. Curry has not surpassed Ray Allen for the NBA’s all-time record for three-pointers on Tuesday. Stephen Curry attained a couple of baskets from beyond the arc early in the game against the New York Knicks. Curry matched Allen’s record with his 2,973rd three-pointer with 10:50 remaining in the first quarter with his first shot of the contest. He missed a chance at breaking the record but minutes later he tallied the record-breaking number of 2,974 and the Madison Square Garden crowd went berzerk.

Curry has been eyeing to eclipse Allen’s record and he has finally achieved after years of wait. He finally surpassed the milestone on Tuesday in his 789th career game; Allen had achieved his old feat in 1,300 appearances.

Stephen Curry, whose mastery of the three-pointer has made the shot mainstream in the NBA, had been inching toward the record for a week. His long-range prowess is quite spectacular he was the huge contender. He could break the record with a single-game mark of 16 in a home game against the Portland Trail Blazers last Wednesday. But that didn’t happen, and the Warriors departed on a road trip with Curry needing 10 three-pointers to break the record.

The 76ers’ solid defense held Curry to three three-pointers on Saturday. He added two more at Indiana on Monday. Curry, who said he knew teams would be keen to slow him, wasn’t disappointed to have a shot at the record at Madison Square Garden, perhaps the most storied arena in the NBA.

“I’ve had some fun nights in that building,” said Curry, whose 54-point performance there against the Knicks on February 27, 2013 was just a beginning for an illustrious career that now includes three NBA titles and two Most Valuable Player awards.
