Stephen Curry Passes Up Another Huge NBA Playoff Mark

In the last several years, Stephen Curry has emerged as one of the top players in the league. This has included some extended playoff runs with strong offensive performances to show for it. During Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Sunday afternoon, Curry moved up the all-time 3-pointers made list in the postseason.

Curry is currently sitting at 281 made 3-pointers, which puts him in striking distance of both Derek Fisher (285) and Kobe Bryant (292). The next one on the list above them is LeBron James (309), who increase that number tremendously before it’s all said and done, but Curry has been much more dependent on the 3-point shot. Manu Ginobili is also ahead of James at 315, which he will add a few more this season and possibly next if he comes back.

The two-time reigning MVP is playing at a high level scoring 40 points in Game 1 that included seven 3-pointers. He has averaged at least 19 points in each of the last four years in the playoffs, including 25 points or higher in the last two seasons. All in all, Curry is on pace to be all the time leader in 3-pointers made and could have a few more NBA titles to his name as well in the process.
