Steph gets ovation from Warriors fans to honor 3-point record

Steph Curry and the Warriors had hoped he would break Ray Allen's all-time 3-point record at Chase Center, but that didn't happen.

Instead, Curry made the record-breaking 2,974th 3-pointer of his career against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday on the third stop of a five-game road trip for the Warriors.

Nearly a week later, Warriors fans in the Bay Area finally got a chance to acknowledge Curry for setting the record.

During the first stoppage in play between the Warriors and Kings at Chase Center on Monday night, a tribute video was played on the video board.

When Curry was introduced to the crowd, they stood up and gave him a huge ovation. As he walked back on the court of the resumption of play, Curry waved to the fans several times before the ball was inbounded.

Curry's next milestone will be becoming the first player ever to reach 3,000 career 3-pointers, and he entered Monday's game needing 18 to reach that mark. Depending on how many he makes against the Kings and against the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday night, he could also hit No. 3000 on the road against the Phoenix Suns on Christmas Day.

If Dub Nation has it their way, Curry will go on a flurry in the two home games before Christmas and give them an early present.
