Golden State Warriors talisman Stephen Curry is on the cusp of creating history. Curry is only 16 threes away from leapfrogging Ray Allen’s record of most threes in the regular season. The linchpin is not ruling out the possibility that he might achieve the coveted record in the team’s next match against Portland Trail Blazers.

Curry has scored 2958 three-pointers in his glorious career while Ray Allen tops the chart with 2973 threes under his bag.
If Cury goes on to score 16 threes in the next match against Portland Trail Blazers, he will also break his teammate Klay Thompson’s record of most threes in a single match, which is 14.

“If you’ve seen the way I play, especially recently, I’m not shy about shooting the ball. The game will dictate what that looks like. I’m not coming out with that as a true goal or like how I play, but crazier things have happened.”
On the other hand, GSW head coach Steve Kerr predicted that Steph Curry is going to shoot a lot against Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
“I’m fully aware he’s 15 away. I’m guessing he’s going to shoot a lot against Portland on Wednesday.”
“Absolutely… He’s Steph Curry so anything is possible. He’s made half-court shots in back-to-back games, so…”
