KD congratulates 'God' Steph after breaking Allen's record

Warriors

Although Kevin Durant is no longer Steph Curry's teammate, the respect that KD has for his former Warriors co-star is obvious.

Durant took to Twitter on Tuesday night to congratulate Curry, a "God," for breaking Ray Allen's record for most 3-pointers in NBA history.

Durant himself was coming off a 34-point, 13-rebound, 11-assist triple-double in the Nets' 131-129 overtime win over the Toronto Raptors a few miles away from Curry at Barclays Center.

Curry, of course, finished with 22 points, including five 3-pointers, in the Warriors' 105-96 victory over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Durant and Curry faced off against each other once so far this season, with the Warriors taking a convincing 117-99 victory over the Nets on Nov. 16 behind 37 points from Curry.

"He's a master at what he does, I've been saying that ever since he came into the league," Durant told reporters after that game. "Just a crafty player who can pretty much do anything off the ball, can cut to the rim, shoot floaters, shoot 3s and can handle the basketball too and get down to his spot.

"I've been there. He put in a ton of work, he cares about the game, loves his teammates, plays with energy. That's what you get every night as a player like that, playing at All-Star, MVP, Hall of Fame level. You gotta respect it."

 

Steph now sits at 2,977 threes and counting, and you know Durant will be appreciating history from afar.
