Curry passes Terry for No. 3 in career 3-pointers

Published

on

Reggie Miller and Ray Allen.

Those are the only two names that stand between Stephen Curry and the record for most 3-pointers in NBA history.

With his third 3-pointer at the 9:59 mark in the third quarter against the Bulls, Curry passed Jason Terry for third place on the all-time list.

1. Ray Allen — 2,973 in 1,300 games

2. Reggie Miller — 2,560 in 1,389 games

4.Stephen Curry — 2,283 in 655 games

3. Jason Terry — 2,282 in 1,410 games

5. Kyle Korver — 2,276 in 1,140 games
 

Curry’s accomplishment was announced to the crowd, and he received a loud ovation from the fans at Oracle Arena.

At Friday’s shootaround Curry acknowledged this milestone would be special because he looked up Allen and Miller when he was a kid.
 

Assuming he stays healthy, Curry should catch Miller at some point next season, and Allen’s record could fall during the 2020-21 season.

Dallas Mavericks veteran point guard J.J. Barea suffered a potentially serious leg injury Friday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Barea landed awkwardly after a made layup late in the fourth quarter and began grabbing at his lower leg. He was helped off the court and straight to the locker room moments later.

ESPN’s Tim MacMahon reports the Mavs fear Barea tore his right Achilles’ tendon.
 

In his post game press conference, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle described the injury as a “right leg injury” and said Barea would have an MRI on Saturday to determine the extent of the injury.

Barea, 34, is averaging 10.8 points and 5.5 assists in nearly 20 minutes off the bench this season.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Memphis Grizzlies guard/forward Dillon Brooks is expected to miss the remainder of the season because of a ruptured ligament in his right big toe.
