The NBA has a new all-time leader in 3-pointers, with the record falling at one of the league's most storied venues.
Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry passed Ray Allen's old mark by nailing two in the first 4 1/2 minutes of a 105-96 victory over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. The second was his 2,974th 3-pointer, which was punctuated by Curry waving his arms toward the sky as he jogged backward down court. The Warriors then committed a foul and quickly called timeout to let the celebration begin. Curry exchanged hugs with coach Steve Kerr, longtime teammate Draymond Green, family members and Allen, who was at the arena.
Curry finished with 22 points and Jordan Poole had 19 points and nine rebounds, going 13 for 13 on free throws to overcome a 3-for-11 night from the field.
