Golden State’s sharpshooter Steph Curry has made 536 three-pointers during his NBA career. His accuracy is mind-boggling considering current NBA regular season rankings he leads the NBA in three-point shots made and attempted. Curry also boasts the NBA’s best free-throw percentage (.909). What brings Ray Allen into the equation? Allen may have made 2,829 three pointers during his 19 year NBA career but that’s not where Curry edges him. He has not even been in the NBA long enough to attempt more threes than Allen has made during his career (1,318 career three point attempts).
According to NBA.com Curry only needs 56 3′s from his last 17 games to break Ray Allen’s record of most 3′s made in a season. This season Curry has made 214 which is 55 three-pointers short of matching Ray Allen’s best three point shooting season of 269 three-pointers made during the 05-06 season in Seattle. That means Curry would need to make at least 3 three pointers per game for the next 17 games to match or surpass Ray Allen’s record.
If Curry goes off for another 50+ point scoring run like he did against the Knicks, that number would be smaller.
Do you think Curry could do it?
