Curry hit seven 3-pointers against the Magic on Monday to increase his all-time total to 2,958 3-pointers, which brings him 16 3-pointers away from passing Allen for the top spot. Curry hit five 3-pointers against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday to increase his all-time total to 2,951 3-pointers entering Monday’s action. The Warriors’ next game is Wednesday against the Trail Blazers (10 ET, ESPN).

All-Time Leaderboard: 3-Pointers Made

• Tracker: Curry needs 16 more 3-pointers to pass Ray Allen.

PLAYER 3PM GAMES
1. Ray Allen 2,973 1,300
2. Stephen Curry 2,958 785
3. Reggie Miller 2,560 1,389

Curry has knocked down at least one shot from long range in 148 consecutive games, which ranks as the NBA’s longest active streak, and the second-longest streak in league annals after moving past Kyle Korver (127). The three-time champion already owns the all-time NBA record of 157 consecutive games with at least one 3-pointer.

At Curry’s current pace (he’s averaging more than five made 3s a game), he appears to be on track to either catch Allen or surpass him in the small window of road games from December 11-14 with the Warriors facing Philadelphia, Indiana and New York in nationally televised outings.

Both Curry and Allen were named to the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team.
