Warriors’ Stephen Curry on brink of NBA’s career 3-point record after going 5-for-15 in win over Pacers
Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is now just two 3-pointers away from breaking Hall of Famer Ray Allen’s all-time record after he knocked down five triples in Monday night’s 102-100 win over the Indiana Pacers.
“I’m enjoying the moment and now you’re knocking on the doorstep, it’s pretty surreal,” Curry said after scoring 26 points and going 5-for-15 from beyond the arc. “But just trying to let it happen. It’s one thing I’ve learned these last three games, is keep playing basketball, keep taking shots you think you’ll make and enjoy the experience of it because it’s a long time coming.”
Curry, who now has 2,972 career 3-pointers, is primed to break Allen’s record (2,973) on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks. The Warriors will take a Tuesday morning flight to New York after spending Monday night in Indianapolis due to plane troubles.
After Monday’s game against the Pacers, coach Steve Kerr acknowledged that the weight of the record is hanging over both Curry and the Warriors. Curry had seven turnovers in the win and has struggled to find his familiar consistent offensive rhythm over the past two weeks.
The Daily Sweat: Can Steph Curry make NBA history vs. the Knicks?
Stephen Curry is on the precipice of history.
The Golden State Warriors star drilled five 3-pointers in his team’s 102-100 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. As a result, Curry is now just two treys away from breaking Ray Allen’s NBA record for career three-point shots made.
Allen hit 2,973 3-pointers during his Hall of Fame career. Curry, now with 2,972 threes, will have the chance to make history on Tuesday night at the NBA’s most iconic venue: Madison Square Garden.
The Warriors will face the Knicks in the second of a back-to-back and are 3.5-point favorites at BetMGM. It’s the third game of a five-game East Coast road trip for the Warriors. They lost 102-93 on Saturday night to Philadelphia as 3-point favorites and were unable to cover as 4-point favorites against the Pacers.
The Warriors are 17-9-1 ATS this season, but just 4-4 ATS as a road favorite.
The Knicks, meanwhile, have lost three straight and six of their last eight. It’s been a rough stretch after the hot start to the season that seemed to have New York fans energized.
Now 12-15 on the year, the Knicks can halt that rough stretch against one of the NBA’s best teams. And with the Warriors in town, there is going to be plenty of energy in the building despite the Knicks’ recent struggles.
