What two things Steph focused on to become 3-point king


Steph Curry is on the verge of making NBA history.

After hitting seven triples Monday night against the Orlando Magic, the Warriors star is within an arm’s length of Hall of Famer Ray Allen for the all-time lead.

Curry is 15 three-pointers away from catching up to Allen and 16 away from passing him for the top spot. 

And now that the question has shifted from if to when Curry will pass Allen, Curry said he has focused on two things along the ride. 

“I always talked about the longevity and efficiency, that I wanted to be the best at both,” Curry told NBC Sports Bay Area's Kelenna Azubuike. “And [I’m] right there knocking at the door so it’ll be special.” 

Curry recalled when Allen broke five-time NBA All-Star Reggie Miller’s three-point shooting record -- while Miller was sitting courtside working the TV broadcast. 

The Warriors guard said he hopes to have a moment like Allen and Miller, two players he has looked up to all his life and respected for what they meant to the game of basketball. 

But Allen broke the record in front of tens of thousands of adoring fans at home in Boston at the TD Garden. For Curry, he might not get that opportunity. 


After the Warriors host the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night in San Francisco, the Dubs go on a five-game road trip before returning home on Dec. 20, so it seems all but assured that Curry will break the record on the road.

But honestly, Curry sinking 16 three-pointers against Portland doesn’t seem that farfetched given what he’s shown he is capable of. 

But even if that doesn’t happen at home on Wednesday, basketball fans, even those who aren't necessarily Warriors fans, will undoubtedly honor Curry on the road and let him enjoy his moment. 

And although Curry said he would love to be crowned three-point king at home in front of family, friends and Dub Nation at Chase Center, he said he will make it special no matter what -- no matter where.
