Ray Allen Says He Plans To Be In The Arena When Stephen Curry Breaks His 3-PT Record: "It's Only Appropriate That I Find My Way There, By Hook Or By Crook."

Ray Allen Says He Plans To Be In The Arena When Stephen Curry Breaks His 3-PT Record: "It's Only Appropriate That I Find My Way There, By Hook Or By Crook."

Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry has an opportunity to surpass Ray Allen's all-time three-point record in his next outing. The Warriors will be hosted by the Philadelphia 76ers at Well Fargo Arena, and Curry will have another go at setting another three-point record.

Steph has previously expressed his desire to do it in front of the home fans but could not achieve it in his last outing. Head coach Steve Kerr was ready to help him in every way possible, but Steph managed only 6 three-pointers in 17 attempts.

Allen was opportune to surpass Reggie Miller's record in 2011 as a member of the Boston Celtics against their butter rivals Los Angeles Lakers at TD Garden. Although Steph has lost that chance, he can trust that Allen will do his best to be available.

Speaking with Dan Patrick on the Dan Patrick Show, Allen revealed that he has been in contact with Steph and has shared his experience in handling all the emotions that can be overwhelming at a time like this.

"I was fortunate because I broke the record in Boston against the Lakers with Reggie in the building. So, it's just only appropriate that I find my way there by hook or by crook. I don't know where it's going to be, so I gotta watch this thing."

Allen pointed out that he might have games on either day, seeing as he is now a coach, so he has to find a way to make it work. He is the head coach in Gulliver Prep, a private co-educational school in Miami.

"So, it's kind of like a tricky situation for me trying to navigate what it is that happens with them."

Steph is 10 three-pointers away from setting a new three-point record. So far this season, his highest tally from beyond the arc stands at 9, which means he will be setting a season-high record if he knocks down 10+ three-pointers in his next game against his brother.

Although Seth Curry is a decent defender, the Warriors have often gotten the better of the Sixers. Nonetheless, Seth has always done a great job disrupting Steph's flow on occasion.

The entire NBA community will watch in anticipation to witness the ceremonial crowning of a new three-point king, and Allen will most likely be on-ground to witness it. Steph has knocked down 132 three-pointers in 24 games this season and is the frontrunner for the 2022 MVP award.
