Stephen Curry Breaks 3-Pointers Single-Season Record Previously Held By Ray Allen (VIDEO)

Golden State's Stephen Curry made NBA history when he drained his 270th 3-pointer of the season against Portland on Wednesday night, breaking Ray Allen's single-season record of 269.

Going into the season finale with 268, Curry didn't waste any time shooting from long range, missing two 3-pointers in the first two minutes. He tied the record on his third attempt later in the first quarter. With under seven minutes left in the half, Curry received a pass on the right wing in transition and didn't hesitate. Swish.

The 25-year-old went on to hit two more free throws setting the record at 272. He finished with 15 and shot 4-for-11 from long range, setting his shooting percentage from behind the arc at 45.3 percent, as the Warriors went on to beat the Trail Blazers 99-88.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — 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.

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.
