View Full Version : Curry is on pace to hit over 400 3-pointers this season!

23 games into the season, Stephen Curry has a 120 3's.

That puts him on pace for about 430 3's in 82 games (let's bring it down to 400 assuming he misses a couple but stays healthy).


The previous record, which he set last year after setting it 2 years prior, was 286.

That means that he's on pace to SMASH that record by over 100 shots!

In six seasons, he's managed to secure 3 of the 5 most productive 3-point seasons, something even Ray Allen didn't pull off in nearly 2 decades in the league (on a side note Klay as 3 of the top 30 seasons).

This is just an insane level of dominance. He is dwarfing the greatest shooters to ever play the game. In six years he's already half way to wear Reggie Miller came to rest after 18 years (three times longer than Curry has been in the league). At this rate, Curry will be in the top 3 before he's even 30 years old!

Allen was likewise in the league 3-times longer than Curry, but Curry is likely going to be half way to the mark Allen set by the end of the season.


This season is fasting becoming historic on many fronts, but this level of dominance is something we've rarely seen. The only guys I can remember being THIS dominant in a statistical category is Will in scoring, and Stockton in assists and steals.


The scary thing is that it looks like Curry will be maintaining this level of play for the foreseeable future, barring injury (god forbid). Can you imagine him hitting 3's at a clip of 350+ for the next 4 or 5 years?

I'm just flabbergasted. It's like watching Stockton smash the record for most assists in a season, and then go on to just keep decimating the old record every year for 6 or 7 seasons.

We will be telling our grandchildren about this guy.



EDIT: Interesting side note, Seth Curry is currently shooting .692 from beyond the arc! The Warriors should have held on to that kid. He's going to be better than his brother :-P

He also made the most three's last year in the playoffs....98...that's more than anyone else has ever made in the playoffs before.

In fact, the most prior was Reggie Miller made 58 in 00

That's 40 more than the previous record holder lol


And Klay Thompson made 57 last year


Curry is averaging 5 made three's every game.
Curry's three point shooting this season is the same as C.J. Miles shooting all season combined lol.


Btw, Paul George is on pace for 287, which would break Allen's record of 269....but then you see Curry.

Paul George is havin' a helluva year. Happy to see that after that brutal injury.

Curry should be shooting 15-18 3s a game.

It's kinda silly to compare to guys like Ray and Reggie though, the league has changed dramatically.

The individual and team 3pt records are going to be broken every year.

Curry is god though.

I don't think anyone will be breaking the 3pt record but Curry himself (most likely in a season where the Warriors are not rolling like this and he plays 4ths). Not like anybody outside of Curry has eclipsed Ray's total yet. And the next two closest were from the mid 90's under the shortened 3pt line.

well it's early but as someone else mentioned Paul George is on pace to break Curry's record from last year. CJ Miles also is on pace to challenge it. Even Klay Thompson & Lowry are on pace to get very close to it or at least Allen's.

As the league moves more and more toward 3's these records will be challenged every year.

Yeah, I mean obviously the trend is that direction, but it's still obviously extremely hard to actually eclipse Ray's old record for a full season if nobody else has done it (let alone Curry's mark and especially Curry's current season). Big difference between a hot start and staying healthy + keeping up the production for a full season.

Miles isn't close to on pace. They've played 20 games and he's at 55 (on by far his highest 3pt efficiency which should settle down), so he's on pace for ~230 and realistically won't get there. 230 falls outside the top 10. PG is actually on pace to beat Ray's for #3 (not Curry's), but he's had a blistering start and is way above his standard volume + efficiency from three. He'll probably regress also. Klay's the guy who will legitimately beat Allen's mark, but the bar Curry is setting this season (even factoring in regression) probably won't be touched by anyone but for a long time.
