Steph Curry is now just 10 made 3-pointers away from breaking Ray Allen’s career NBA record.
When it happens, Curry will have hit the 2,974 mark in more than 500 fewer games, 500 fewer attempts and almost 20,000 fewer minutes that Allen required.

Curry is averaging just under 19 3 point attempts per game this season. An all time high.
