Steph Curry made history on Tuesday (Dec. 14) after breaking the NBA’s all-time three-point record. The Golden State Warriors star point guard surpassed previous record holder Ray Allen’s number of career three-pointers after landing No. 2,974. The historic basket was made during the first quarter of the Warriors’ game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
Although Curry beat the record on his opponents’ court, the Knicks still stopped the game to celebrate his historic moment.
Allen also foresaw Curry’s achievement and applauded the 33-year-old on Instagram.
“As I look back on the day when I passed [Reggie Miller] to be the all time leader in the [NBA] in 3 pointers, I had the opportunity to not only share that stage with my teammates and the great Reggie Miller but I also had the opportunity to share it with the late, great [Kobe Bryant],” he wrote. “I will remember that night forever and so tonight will be just as memorable for [Steph Curry] as he passes me on the list and oh what a night it will be! All I ask is, can y’all save me a seat please, Spike didn’t return my calls!”
Curry went into Tuesday’s game only two three-pointers away from breaking Allen’s record. According to CBS Sports, the seven-time NBA All-Star’s potential to make history caused a spike in game prices. The game’s get-in ticket, priced at $565, was reportedly the most expensive get-in price in Madison Square Garden history.
Back in October, when Curry was 139 three-pointers away from making history, he said breaking Allen’s record would be “mind-boggling.”
“It’s always been surreal to even go back in time and think about those ambitious goals I had, my love for just shooting the basketball has always been a part of me as a basketball player,” he told NBC Sports at the time. “Something that I’ve worked on, so to join that club is mind-boggling.”
“I’ll have some emotions for sure, when it happens,” he added.
