Led by Zach Lavine and DeMar DeRozan, they have a record of 8-3 so far. Hence, the November 12 game at Chase Center was the battle of the top dogs.

Stephen Curry surpasses Ray Allen

Ray Allen was on top of the all-time three-pointers in the NBA so far. But it was only about time that Steph could take over. Likewise, while in the second quarter against the Bulls, Curry launched a three to make history. Heading into the game, he needed three from beyond the arc to make the record his own.

However, this record is inclusive of the playoff pointers as well. But with the way Curry is playing, it won’t be long till Curry takes over the regular season as well. Going off for almost 300 made threes per season, there is no doubt Curry will be on top by the end of the season.
