Stephen Curry, a record for eternity | NBA

Draymond Green was hoping Stephen Curry would take the 3-point record in the first quarter, and his wish was granted. History will remember that it was after four minutes and twenty-seven seconds of the game against the Knicks that the leader of the Warriors planted his 2,974th career 3-point basket. One more than Ray Allen present in the room. Commentaries: Reggie Miller, former record holder. In the room, Dell Curry, daddy of the hero of the evening, himself a former big trigger of the NBA, who played with Ray Allen and against Reggie Miller.

“It was a wonderful ending. There was the preparation to reach this figure, in a unique atmosphere. I knew that the Garden would live up to its reputation ” first reacted Stephen Curry. “I can’t say it enough, but I appreciate so much the way the fans lived this moment with me and let me live it. I could feel it. Once I pulled to the side I felt good, looked good – felt like I was home. “

Raise the record as high as possible

What makes this evening unique is that her parents were there. Ray Allen too. Reggie Miller …

“It was a unique moment that I enjoyed and will remember for the rest of my life, seeing what it means for me to overtake Ray. Him and Reggie, guys I looked up to when I first started playing. It really is special. I have respect for Reggie and Ray, players who set a standard for what an elite shooter is. There is also their longevity. Personally, I have tried to integrate all of this into my course in terms of distance, volume and efficiency. All of these things come into play. So I’m proud to have a high percentage, and I’m proud that it helps us win games. And now, I can be proud of this longevity to achieve this record that Ray set and, I hope to take it to a level that no one can reach. “

Clumsy at 3-points for some time, Stephen Curry finished the game 5 of 14 from afar, but his 22 points allowed the Warriors to come away with the victory. It’s the icing on the cake, and it’s what keeps the locker room party going.

“In the locker room, it was the Steph of yesteryear… Happy and grateful” says Steve Kerr. “He explained to the team what it means to him. How much basketball matters to him, the process of getting there. It stays the same, and that’s the beauty of Steph. He’s so genuine, so genuine… I thought the evening had been perfect, and that sums up who he is and his reaction was perfect. “

A notable absentee: Klay Thompson

The first to celebrate Stephen Curry on the pitch, Draymond Green is proud to experience this historic moment alongside one of the best players in history.

« I always say that we don’t often have the opportunity to meet someone excellent in a field, and even less to work with someone who is excellent, and the best in a field ” says the strong winger. “It’s a very rare thing, because there are very few people who are the best in any given field. Steph is the best shooter in history, and we get to work with him every day. It’s a very special thing. »

A notable absentee for this record: Klay Thompson, remained in San Francisco to finish with his recovery plan. But Stephen Curry does not forget it. ” His jersey was next to mine in the locker room. It will be good to come back and celebrate it all with him. And of course to celebrate his return. »
