Steph Curry is on some tear this year, even compared to his usual rarefied standard.

Curry reached triple digits from deep in NBA-record time this season by draining 100 three-pointers in his first 19 appearances. Since February, he's hit nine or more threes in 13 Golden State Warriors games. James Harden and Damian Lillard, the category's next-most productive shooters, have done that nine times apiece over their entire careers.

For his career, Curry has connected on 2,958 regular-season threes. He could overtake Ray Allen's all-time record of 2,973 as early as Saturday. When Curry retires, don't expect the benchmark to be touchable.

Already, Curry's made more threes than Allen did in the regular season and playoffs combined. But trey No. 2,974 is the bucket that'll generate fanfare, like when Allen surpassed Reggie Miller on Feb. 10, 2011, and dapped up Miller - the TNT color analyst seated courtside - not once but twice during separate standing ovations.

A ten-time All-Star and two-time NBA champion, Allen competed in the dunk contest as a rookie and worked tirelessly to become a marksman. He shot more accurately than Miller in equivalent time - both played 18 seasons - but rarely hit more than five threes in a night, which is only to say that he didn't reinvent what offense looks like.
