Curry becomes the all-time leader in postseason 3s | ESPN

Golden State Warriors’ superstar Stephen Curry is now the NBA’s all-time leader in postseason three-pointers. The point guard surpassed Ray Allen on that list during the Warriors’ 121-104 Game 1 victory over the LA Clippers at Oracle Arena. Curry entered the game seven triples behind Allen, but the two-time NBA MVP topped Allen in the third quarter, when he nailed his eighth triple of the game, giving him 386 postseason three-pointers.

“That’s pretty special. I mean, I always talk about longevity and the all-time great shooters. Ray Allen, Reggie Miller — anytime we can pass them in the record books, it’s pretty special,” Curry said after the game. “I shot a lot of [3-pointers], so I got to make a lot of them.”

Steve Kerr was disappointed with what he saw and said: “We took the bait, [Durant] took the bait, and that’s two technicals. You get seven technicals, your seventh one is a suspension in the playoffs. Whether you play four playoff games or 24, seven is the magic number. So he’s got four to play with after one game.”
