Steph Curry is two threes away from making history and become the NBA’s all-time leader in three pointers. After the Monday’s victory over the Pacers, the Warriors’ superstar admitted he faced tough defenses while chasing Ray Allen record.
Curry knocked down five triples in the 102-100 win over the Pacers on Monday and needs only two more to break Allen’s three-point shooting record. There was optimism that Curry could break the record in the last three games.
“Yeah, I mean I hear a little bit of everything. I saw Joel [Embiid], what he said postgame… I know teams are coming out, trying to make sure it doesn’t happen to them, especially if it’s making ten or 16 or seven, whatever it is.”
After Golden State faced off the Sixers, Joel Embiid said that he wasn’t going to let Steph Curry break the record in Philadelphia.
Curry had to face a tough defense in Indiana. He had seven turnovers, while he shot 5-of-15 from beyond the arc with one of them coming at a crucial point in the fourth quarter.
As for the record, Curry is set to become the NBA three-point king in tonight’s game vs the New York Knicks in the Maddison Square Garden.
