Top 3-point shooters in NBA history: Melo, CJ next after Dame

Trail Blazers

Damian Lillard made history Tuesday night in Indiana.

The All-Star guard became just the 10th player ever to eclipse the 2,000 career made 3-pointers mark by knocking down four triples in the Trail Blazers' blowout win over the Indiana Pacers.

Lillard reached the milestone in his 671st game, a pace bested only by Stephen Curry, who achieved the feat in his 597th game.

Here's a look at the 10 members of the 2,000 3-pointers club:

  1. Ray Allen (2,973 3-pointers)
  2. Stephen Curry (2,773)
  3. Reggie Miller (2,560)
  4. Kyle Korver (2,450)
  5. James Harden (2,441)
  6. Vince Carter (2,290)
  7. Jason Terry (2,282)
  8. Jamal Crawford (2,221)
  9. Paul Pierce (2,143)
  10. Damian Lillard (2,001)

Damian Lillard joined Jamal Crawford as the only two Blazers to make 2,000 3-pointers in their career. Dame, of course, has made each and every one of his 3s with Portland while Crawford made just 80 of his 2,221 career 3s with the Blazers. As far as current Blazers, two players come to mind as potential guys who could crack 2,000 career 3-pointers. Carmelo Anthony has made 1,560 3-pointers in his career, and perhaps a few more strong seasons could get him on the list. CJ McCollum has made 1,148 3-pointers in his career. At age 29, McCollum certainly could join Lillard at the 2,000 mark some day.
