• Stephen Curry surpasses Hall of Famer Ray Allen for most made three-pointers in NBA history
  • The who's who of three-point shooting was in attendance at Madison Square Garden for the said achievement
  • Reggie Miller declares that Curry's record will stand the test of time

The long wait for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry and the rest of the basketball world is over as he has set the new NBA record for made three-pointers in their 105-96 victory over the New York Knicks.

The record-breaking moment came off an Andrew Wiggins assist from the foul line to the right wing at the 7:33-mark of the first quarter.

Madison Square Garden was rocking as Curry backpedaled his way on defense, beat his chest once, and let out a huge roar of sheer joy and relief that the moment is now past him.

Poetic that Curry’s achievement would be done in one of the most iconic arenas in basketball history, in front of his father Dell Curry who was a three-point shooting marksman then, his college coach Bob McKillop in the stands, Indiana Pacers legend Reggie Miller on the call and the man he had to beat, NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen.

After Curry was congratulated by his teammates, he went to his father and shared an emotional moment with him before having a small moment with Warriors coach Steve Kerr, a sharpshooter himself and finally approaching Allen.

Miller once held the record at 2,560 made threes over an illustrious 18-year career with the Pacers before Allen broke it on February 10, 2011 at the TD Garden with the Boston Celtics, and finished his career with 2,973 three-point markers.

Few thought that Allen’s record would ever be beaten due to the 400-plus difference between his record and that of Miller’s until Curry came into the league and smashed it, ending the game with five three-pointers and an overall 2,977 made threes.

A few hours before the game, NBC Sports’ Dalton Johnson revealed a conversation between Miller and the 33-year-old Curry that will air in an upcoming interview.

Miller declared that no one else will ever come close to touching Curry’s record when it is all said and done.

“Go to [Las] Vegas. This is one NBA record that will never--you heard it--never be touched," said the Pacers legend, to which Curry glowingly agrees with.

Curry achieved the feat in 511 games less than that of Allen and 600 less than Miller.
