SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has a shot to set another a shooting record — again.
With 2,958 career 3-pointers made in the regular season, Curry needs to make an NBA-record 16 3-pointers Wednesday against the Portland Trail Blazers at Chase Center to pass Hall of Fame sharpshooter Ray Allen for most regular-season makes in league history.
Yes, Curry needs 16 3-pointers in one night, which would shatter teammate Klay Thompson’s record of 14 set back in 2018, according to the Warriors.
However, Curry has set numerous shooting records to the point few things should surprise audiences.
Curry scored a career-high 62 points against the Blazers back in January in the same building — without fans.
This time out, there should be around 18,000 in the crowd to potentially witness history.
Curry broke Allen’s record (3,358) on Nov. 12 for most 3-point makes in NBA history: regular season and postseason combined — doing it in 585 fewer games, which is roughly seven fewer seasons.
The two-time NBA MVP’s 470 3-point makes in the playoffs is also the most in NBA history.
