Steph Curry is officially the 3-Point King of the NBA.
The Golden State Warriors guard broke the all-time NBA 3-point record when he knocked down his 2,974 3-pointer of his career to dethrone Hall of Famer Ray Allen.
The record-breaking shot came on Tuesday night with 7 minutes and 33 seconds left in the first quarter matchup between the Warriors and the New York Knicks.
After Steph drained a 28-footer, the Warriors called a time out to allow him time to celebrate.

After the game, Steph Curry said:
It was a beautiful ending to this last week.
The buildup to getting this number, it was a special atmosphere. I knew the Garden would deliver just in terms of how iconic this place is — I can’t say it enough, I appreciate so much the way the fans embraced the moment with me and let me kind of get lost in it. I could feel it. Once I took the shot on the wing, it just felt good, looked good — it felt like we were at home.
It was a special moment, for sure, that I appreciate and I’ll remember for the rest of my life, in terms of what it means to me to pass Ray.
Him and Reggie [Miller], guys I’ve looked up to coming into the game. Definitely special.
