June 8, 2022 – Curry connected 5-of-14 triples enroute to scoring 22 points during a 105-96 Golden State Warriors road win over the New York Knicks on December 14, 2021.
Curry tied Ray Allen’s record with his first 3-pointer of the game in the first quarter then surpassed it with his second 3-pointer. The make was the 2,974th triple of his career.

As of the end of the 2021-22 regular season, Curry connected 3,117 triples in 826 games.
Allen’s record stood for nearly 11 years since he took over the leadership from Reggie Miller on February 10, 2011.

Harden accomplished the feat in vintage fashion, drilling the step-back 3-pointer over former teammate Kyrie Irving.
Harden was 3-of-7 from three-point land and finished with11 points for the Sixers, who lost the game, 129-100. Harden also needed considerably less games to achieve the feat. It took Harden 927 games to equal what Miller did in 1,389 games.
