Photos: Stephen Curry makes his way through history, setting NBA three-point record

Stephen Curry has worked his way to the top of the NBA record books for career three points.

Curry scored his 2974th three-point shot in the Golden State Warriors’ first quarter of the game against the New York Knicks on Tuesday night, breaking the record set by Ray Allen.

Curry hit the right wing shot with 7:33 remaining, waving his arms skyward as he ran back down the field. The Warriors then made a foul and quickly called time out to get the celebration started. Curry exchanged hugs with coach Steve Kerr, longtime teammate Draymond Green, family members and Allen, who was at the arena.
