Update, Dec. 14 — Curry has broken Ray Allen’s record for most 3-pointers in NBA history on Tuesday night against the New York Knicks. Curry wasted no time and hit two treys early in the first quarter. He was taken out of the game after setting the mark and it’s unclear how much Curry will play against New York. He’ll probably get back into the game and play a bit.

Oh hey, we didn’t see you there! Welcome to the party. We’re here to watch Stephen Curry make history (hopefully) in the Golden State Warriors’ matchup with the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. Said history involves breaking the all-time record for 3-pointers made set by Ray Allen in 1,300 games. For Curry, this is game 788 and he’s trailing Allen by six 3-pointers to tie the record, seven to take it.

It may be a tough task for Curry to break the record in one swift blow on Monday night. It also may be incredibly easy. We’ve seen both sides of Curry lately as the Warriors struggle for the first time all season. So as a result, we’ll be tracking Curry’s progress throughout the night.

Final update — We go to Tuesday. Curry fell short of the record on Monday night in a 102-100 win over the Pacers. He hit 5-of-15 3-pointers in the victory, so a little off despite the 26-point game. Curry will go to MSG against the Knicks on Tuesday night with a chance to set the record early on.

9:27 p.m. ET — Just when you thought Curry was out of it, the Dubs are right back in it. The score is tied 100-100 with under a minute left and Curry nailed another trey to go two away from the record with the possibility of overtime on the table.

9:12 p.m. ET — Curry is running out of time on Monday night vs. the Pacers. He hasn’t hit any treys in the fourth quarter. This isn’t a bad thing. It gives us Curry Watch Part 2 on Tuesday night at MSG against the Knicks. Prime time for crime time, baby!

8:53 p.m. ET — ANOTHER ONE! Curry can taste the record he’s only three shots away from passing Allen all-time. It’s toward the end of the third quarter and Curry already has played 28 minutes. Kerr is letting him ride this one to the promised land. He’s gonna do it tonight!

8:46 p.m. ET — Curry has hit three treys so far and is only four more away from breaking the record in a game that should be tight down to the wire. It’s looking more like Curry wants it tonight and he’s definitely got a chance. He’s got 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting from the floor with four boards and four turnovers. If he can get another before the end of the quarter, knocking down three in the final frame is very much in play.

Halftime update — Curry has two treys in the first half and is five more away from breaking the record. He’s up to 13 points and the Dubs only trail 55-47 against the Pacers. The Warriors usually come alive in the third quarter. That’ll be when Steph looks to break the record. He’s already chucking so far with seven outside attempts.

7:53 p.m. ET — Six more! Steph hit one in the second quarter and the countdown continues. The Dubs went on a mini run and the game is close at 36-34 Pacers. Steph is up to 13 minutes, so it appears Kerr won’t hold him back. This could get interesting in the second half.

7:34 p.m. ET — Curry heads to the bench in the first quarter after seven minutes, scoring 3 points with a block. The Dubs are off to a horrible start and this game looks to be on the ugly side. It should still be close, so that’s a plus. It also doesn’t appear Steve Kerr has any intention of stretching Curry or overworking him. Steph must really want it at MSG on Tuesday. We’ll see.

7:25 p.m. ET — We’re about halfway through the first quarter and the game is tight. Steph has taken two outside shots and is 0-for-2 so far. He can heat up at any time and the game being close helps his prospects of playing enough minutes. This start has us feeling we see Curry go for the record again on Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

Pre-game update — The Dubs enter this game favored by 4 points on the spread. Steph’s player props earlier in the day were O5.5 3PM, 27.5 points and also a special 8+ 3PM at +170 on DraftKings Sportsbook. Those lines haven’t seen any movement heading into tip-off. Curry to break the record and hit 7+ 3-pointers is at +120 as a DK promotion.
