Reggie Miller knew this moment was coming and he was ready for it.
Steph Curry passed the Hall of Famer for No. 2 on the all-time 3-pointer list in the Warriors' 127-108 loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday night, and Miller wasted no time congratulating the two-time NBA MVP.
"I’ve had the best seat in the house in calling a lot of your games @StephenCurry30, simply GREATNESS!!! Congrats but the job isn’t done, Jesus Shuttlesworth is waiting on ya.. #GreatnessPersonified," Miller wrote.
Curry entered the game against the Jazz needing four 3-pointers to pass Miller, and about a minute into the third quarter, he took care of business, hitting a shot as he was fading out of bounds. It was a classic Curry shot.
As Miller pointed out, Curry has more work to do. With 2,562 career 3-pointers, Curry now is 411 behind Ray Allen for the top spot. Assuming good health, Curry should become the all-time leader in 3-pointers at some point in the 2021-22 NBA season.
It took Miller 1,389 games to make 2,560 career 3-pointers. Curry passed him in his 715th game. Needless to say, the Warriors star is going to pass Allen and then set a new standard that will be well into over 3,000 and maybe even over 4,000 3-pointers.
