Stephen Curry started his 2019 NBA playoffs campaign with 38 points, 15 rebounds and seven dimes in 37 minutes. He led the Golden State Warriors to the home victory versus the Los Angeles Clippers nailing 8/12 shots beyond the arc. The 31-year-old American point guard also became the player with the most postseason triples in NBA history.

Curry passed Ray Allen’s 385 three-pointers in the playoffs midway through the fourth quarter of the contest between the two Californian organizations. It certainly was a heated game, but the Davidson alumni took advantage of the defensive matchups showcasing his unique shooting abilities.

Following the contest he said: “To be in the same category and to pass a guy like Ray Allen and all the iconic moments he’s had in playoff games and finals games, it’s pretty surreal. Definitely honored and grateful for those opportunities. I always joked, if I shoot a lot of threes I better make a lot of them.”
