Curry clinched the mark with his second three-pointer in the Warriors' season finale in Portland. It was his 270th of the season, breaking the mark that Ray Allen set during the 2005-2006 season with the Seattle Supersonics.
The number also marks another milestone in what was a banner season for the fourth-year player out of Davidson. Curry averaged a career-high 23 points per game, easily eclipsing the 18.6 points per game he scored in 2010-11. Last season, Curry was limited to just 26 games after suffering an ankle injury.
On the season, Curry has also hit a league-high 3.5 three-pointers per game, and made a staggering 16 threes in the Warriors' previous two victories entering Wednesday night.
