Stephen Curry has another milestone to add to his already impressive resume.
The Warriors star became the all-time leader in postseason 3-pointers Saturday during his team’s 121-104 victory over the Clippers in Game 1 of the Western Conference playoffs at Oracle Arena.
Curry reached the feat in the third quarter with his eighth 3-pointer of the night to give him 386. He entered the matchup seven behind Ray Allen.

“That’s pretty special. I mean, I always talk about longevity and the all-time great shooters. Ray Allen, Reggie Miller — anytime we can pass them in the record books, it’s pretty special,” Curry said after the game (per ESPN). “I shot a lot of (3-pointers), so I got to make a lot of them.
“The way I play, the shots I take, obviously have confidence every time you rise up, but to be in the same category and to pass a guy like Ray Allen and all the iconic moments he’s had in playoff games and Finals games and all that type of stuff, it’s pretty surreal. So (I’m) definitely honored and grateful for those opportunities.”
It took Curry significantly fewer games than Allen to reach the milestone as he did it in just 91 playoff games compared to Allen’s 171 postseason matchups.
“That’s remarkable, given that he’s kind of right in his prime,” coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s got a lot of years left.”
Draymond Green added: “I don’t think there’s much argument when anyone says he’s the greatest shooter of all time. I don’t know if you can find many people to argue that.”
Curry finished the game with 38 points with seven assists and a career-high 15 rebounds.
