News ServicesApril 18, 2013 

— Golden State’s Stephen Curry set a record for 3-pointers in a season when he hit his 270th in the second quarter of the Warriors’ game Wednesday night against the Trail Blazers.

The shot with 6:49 left in the half put the former Davidson standout in front of Ray Allen’s mark of 269 set in 2005-06.

Healthy for most of this season after two surgeries on his right ankle, Curry came into the game averaging nearly 3.5 3-pointers a game.

He made 16 3-pointers in the previous two games to close within one of Allen’s record set with the Seattle SuperSonics. Curry hit his first 3 of the night with 6:55 to go in the first quarter.
