Curry sets NBA mark

 

Golden State’s Stephen Curry set a record for 3-pointers in a season when he hit his 270th in the second quarter of the Warriors’ game Wednesday night against the Trail Blazers at Portland. The shot with 6:49 left in the half put Curry in front of Ray Allen’s mark of 269 set in 2005-06. Healthy for most of this season after two surgeries on his right ankle, Curry came into the game averaging nearly 3.5 3-pointers a game. He made 16 3-pointers in the previous two games to close within one of Allen’s record set with the Seattle SuperSonics. Curry hit his first 3 of the night with 6:55 to go in the first quarter. The 25-year-old finished the night 4 of 11 from behind the arc, setting the record at 272 for 3-pointers in a season. – Associated Press
