Everybody from Steph Curry to his Warriors teammates to his coaches and every fan of basketball is ready for the greatest shooter of all time to finally break Ray Allen's 3-point record.
Sitting just one 3-pointer away from tying and two from setting a new record, Curry's five triples Monday night in the Warriors' 102-100 win over the Indiana Pacers at Gainbridge Fieldhouse put him ever-so-close to making history.
Curry's incredible pursuit first took center-stage against the Portland Trail Blazers on Dec. 8 where the sharp-shooter was 16 3-pointers away from a new record. Obviously a stretch but with Curry, not impossible. That night he only scored six.
Against his brother, Seth, and the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night, Curry needed 10 3-pointers for the record, still a daunting task but something he has done 22 times in his career. He would only make three.
Monday night against the lowly Pacers he was just seven 3-pointers shy of breaking the record, a rather feasible target. He would hit five. And so the story goes.
After Monday night's game, Draymond Green joined the "Warriors Postgame Live" crew and discussed how eager he and the team are for Steph to finally get the record.
"I think I'll be just as happy for him to break it as everyone else in this world," Green said. "It's time man. We definitely want to get it behind us. I don't think we're playing for it, but subconsciously, that's the special thing about this group, about past groups, when you have a guy who either has it going or you have a guy who is going for something, everybody is going to look for him.
"It's just naturally how we are. So although I don't think guys are consciously going out there saying 'We need to get Steph the record,' subconsciously, I definitely think that's taking place. We're all looking for him. But that usually works as well. We just got to continue to play Warriors basketball and hopefully, he can get that record out of the way in the first quarter tomorrow so we can move forward."
Scheduled to face off against the New York Knicks on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden for the second game of a back-to-back, Curry sits just one made 3-pointer away from tying and two from making history.
The record has been a long-time coming. Curry and the Warriors will be eager to finally put it behind them and continue on their NBA championship quest.
