Steph Curry is closing in on Kobe Bryant on the NBA's all-time three-point field goals made list and the Warriors' upcoming road trip could provide him with that opportunity. The Black Mamba made 1827 3-pointers during his illustrious career, and Steph is only behind by three triples on the all-time list.
He is also only six three point field goals away from tying former Pistons legend Chauncey Billups for 10th on the all-time list, according to the Mercury News. Six of the nine players who are ahead on that list are still active, meaning their numbers will are still advancing. Jason Kidd (8th), Reggie Miller (2nd), and Ray Allen (1st) are the only retired players in the top 10 for 3-pointers made.
Curry had a chance to surpass Bryant on that list during Golden State Warriors' game against the Philadelphia 76ers, but went 0-for-11 on his 3-point attempts, which is the worse of his career and breaks the previous record he established when he went 0-for-10 against the Los Angeles Lakers last November. According to ESPN, he is tied with Trey Burke and Antoine Walker for most three point field goal attempts without a make, which is an NBA record.
He did, however, manage to finish the game with 19 points and 6 assists, but only shot 7/23 from the floor. While Curry may not have been able to surpass the legendary Kobe Bryant on Monday, he still has plenty of time to make up for it as the Warriors are currently on a 5-game road trip. Their next match will be on Tuesday against the Washington Wizards.
In addition to closing in on Kobe Bryant in the all-time 3-point field goals list, Steph is also close on passing his father, Dell Curry, on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Steph only needs to score 141 more points to overtake his father for 220th on the list. The Warriors (50-9) have already clinched a playoff spot and look poised for another 60-win season.
