The Warriors' highlight reel in their 127-108 loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday night isn't a long one. Turnovers, poor defense and empty offensive possessions plagued them from the tip. T
But there was a moment that sweetened the blow. At the start of the third quarter, Steph Curry drove into the lane, kicked the ball out to Draymond Green, relocated to the corner, and hit the shot off a quick pass from Green, knocking down 3-pointer No. 2,561 to pass Reggie Miller for second place on the all-time 3-point list. It was a quintessential Steph Curry shot.
Curry made five 3-pointers against the Jazz and now sits 411 made 3-pointers behind Hall of Famer Ray Allen for No. 1.
Curry was just a minute into his post-game Zoom press conference when get got a virtual visit from the player he had just passed on the list.
"Oh! What up Reg," Curry shouted as he saw Miller pop up in one of the boxes on the screen. Miller's son, Ryker, was with him and informed Curry that he owned all of his jerseys.
"Congratulations," Miller told Curry. "This is an unbelievable achievement. But the work is not done. I know you are chasing Ray, but you are an inspiration to so many little ones, like mine. I'm just so proud of all the work because I know what goes into that. I know the countless hours when it's easy to go hang with your boys, hit the clubs, sleep, do other things, but you're in the lab getting your work done.
