Playoffs 2019 West First Round: Warriors (1) vs. Clippers (8)

Curry passes Allen for most career playoff 3-pointers

Continuing his onslaught on the NBA’s myriad 3-point records, Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry drained eight shots from long range in Saturday’s playoff game with the LA Clippers to surpass Ray Allen for the most in postseason history.

Even more impressively, Curry amassed his total of 386 playoff 3s in roughly half as many games, just 91 compared to the 171 contests Allen needed to set the previous mark (385).

Rounding out the top five are: LeBron James (370); Manu Ginobili (324) and Reggie Miller (320).

Curry holds additional records for most 3-pointers in The Finals (98) and a single postseason (also 98).

He also sits just 490 3s away from Allen’s regular-season record of 2,973, having already banked four of the top six single regular-season totals in history.
