Stephen Curry became the NBA’s All-Time three-point leader now. He now sits at 2,974 three-pointers made for his career. He passed Ray Allen and was able to embrace Allen once he knocked down the record-breaker. All while receiving a resounding standing ovation from the Knicks home crowd.
Curry wanted to break that record at home in San Francisco. However, he was more than satisfied being able to do it in front of a Madison Square Garden crowd.
“If you can’t do it at home, this is definitely a great Plan B,” Curry said Tuesday night.
