Steph Curry passes Jason Terry on NBA's all-time 3-point list

Steph Curry passes Jason Terry on NBA's all-time 3-point list

Reggie Miller and Ray Allen.

Those are the only two names that stand between Steph Curry and the record for most 3-pointers in NBA history.

With his third 3-pointer at the 9:59 mark in the third quarter against the Bulls on Friday night, Curry passed former NBA guard Jason Terry on the all-time list.

With that 3-pointer, Curry sits at 2,283 and counting. Utah forward Kyle Korver is right on Curry's tail, so he can't let up.

Terry needed 1,410 games to amass 2,282 career 3-pointers. Friday's game is the 656th game of Curry's career.

About 20 minutes after Curry passed him, Terry sent a congratulatory tweet to Curry.

Miller is second on the list with 2,560, and assuming he stays healthy, Curry will pass him at some point during the 2019-20 season. Allen is first with 2,973 and Curry could pass him during the 2020-21 season.

Russell Westbrook suspended one game after technical foul vs. Warriors

Russell Westbrook suspended one game after technical foul vs. Warriors

The Warriors got the better of Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Saturday night.

In addition to securing an impressive 110-88 road win without Kevin Durant, Golden State held Westbrook to just seven points on 2-of-16 shooting, and provoked multiple emotional reactions out of Oklahoma City's star point guard.

One of those reactions resulted in Westbrook being assessed a technical foul, his 16th of the season. That earned Westbrook an automatic one-game suspension, which he will serve Monday night when the Thunder host the Heat.

That's relevant to the Warriors for a couple reasons.

For one, particularly with Golden State's victory Saturday, the chances that the Warriors could face Oklahoma City in the first round of the playoffs appear greater than they did two weeks ago. The Thunder (42-28) have one of the toughest remaining schedules in the NBA, and currently sit just two games ahead of the Los Angeles Clippers for the eighth seed in the West.

If Oklahoma City loses to Miami on Monday, that possibility becomes even more likely.

Additionally, Westbrook's automatic suspension presents a good time to review Draymond Green's status as it relates to technical fouls. With 14 games remaining on Golden State's regular-season schedule, Green currently has 14 technical fouls on the season. That means he would have to accrue at least two more technicals in the remaining 14 games in order to be suspended.

The technical foul counts reset at the start of the playoffs, so Green's slate will be swiped clean approximately a month of now. Players earn an automatic one-game suspension after their seventh postseason technical.

With only one game currently separating the Warriors and the Denver Nuggets for the top record in the West, it would behoove Green to avoid an automatic suspension.

Golden State certainly hopes he can avoid one in the playoffs as well.

DeMarcus Cousins to have MRI; Andrew Bogut’s Warriors reunion moved up

DeMarcus Cousins left the Warriors' 110-88 win over the Thunder on Saturday in the middle of the fourth quarter with an apparent sore right ankle. It appeared nothing was serious from what coach Steve Kerr said after the game.

The latest update, however, has Andrew Bogut’s return to the Warriors being pushed up a bit.

Apparently the assumption this was just a tweak could turn into something more serious. Keep in mind that MRIs often are done for precautionary reasons.

Bogut, who signed March 6, originally was supposed to reunite with the Warriors in Oakland later this week, but he will be in San Antonio by Monday when the team faces the Spurs.

So, we do get to see Bogut in a Dubs uniform again earlier than anticipated, but the team hopes the Boogie injury isn't anything too serious. They just got him back.
