Already the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-point field goals made, Stephen Curry entered uncharted territory Tuesday night when he drilled his 3,000th career 3-pointer.
Curry closed out the third quarter with triple over Facundo Campazzo to become the first player in NBA history to make 3,000 career 3-pointers. Overall, Curry finished the 89-86 loss to Denver shooting 5-for-14 on 3-pointers to give him 3,004 in his career.
