Steph Curry thought he had passed Jason Terry on the all-time 3-point list in the Warriors’ previous game against the Knicks. He didn’t.
But the two-time MVP did so on Friday night against the Bulls. His third 3-pointer at 9:59 in the third quarter pushed him ahead of “The Jet” and put him behind only Reggie Miller and Ray Allen.
After the Warriors’ 146-109 win over the Bulls, Curry was asked about what it means to be sitting behind those two Hall of Fame sharpshooters.
“It’s a special accomplishment in terms of, two guys that I know are trendsetters and stretching the imagination of the 3-point game,” Curry told the media at Oracle Arena. “Doing it for many, many years and people that I looked up to as a young kid playing the game.”
Curry grew up in NBA arenas, following his father Dell Curry around. He was lucky enough to be in the building to watch Miller and Allen play in their primes. So to be this close to two legends he watched growing up has to be special.
