Even though Steph Curry has emerged over the last half-decade as the basically-undisputed greatest three-point shooter of all time, there were still some records that he had to break.
It was only a matter of time, and everyone expected it to happen—but nevertheless, the fact that it finally did happen makes it all the more special.
During Saturday’s game against the Utah Jazz, Golden State Warriors two-time MVP Curry passed Indiana Pacer legend, Reggie Miller, as the holder of the second-most 3-pointers made of all time.
Miller sunk 2,560 3-pointers throughout his career, but he did it in 1,389 regular-season games and 18 years in the league. Curry, on the other hand, surpassed that number on his 715th game and 12th NBA season. Let that sink in as to how dominant Curry has been behind the arc throughout his career.
“That’s pretty dope,” said Curry in an interview after the game. “We got our head beat tonight, but I was trying to still enjoy it. After I made the third one, I knew that was a big one, and then to make that fourth one in the third quarter was pretty special. Something I’ve been looking forward to for a very long time.”
