Golden State Warriors linchpin Stephen Curry was finally able to go past Ray Allen’s three-point NBA record. Curry scored the record-breaking three-pointer (his 2974th) when 7:44 were left in the first quarter against New York Knicks at the Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.
The talisman scored 22 points and once again played a key role in his team’s 105-96 win against the Knicks. Curry gave his gratitude to his teammates for playing a key role in his record and said it is a truly special moment in his career.
“I don’t have much to say besides I appreciate everybody that has had a part in me being who I am on the court, off the court.”
“This is a career milestone because of everybody I got to suit up with, everyone that set screens for me, everybody that passed me the ball, everybody that believed in our offense and believed in winning and the process so, this is truly special man.”
After bagging the much-needed record, Curry added that they need to keep the winning impetus and they will try to score more threes and get more wins under their bag in the rest of the season.
“We’ve got a lot more threes, a lot more wins, a lot more stuff to go but I appreciate y’all making this special. Because it’s been a long week [chuckles] to get over this milestone. Having Reggie and Ray here was special but, none more special than everyone in this locker room. Let’s keep this energy going.”
Golden State Warriors have got off a fine start in the ongoing season as they have a 23-5 record and Curry has played a key role in the success of his team. The point guard has been sensational for Golden State Warriors and he as well as his team will look to continue the good show. GSW is currently at the top of the standings in the Western Conference.
Warriors will next face Boston Celtics on Friday.
