Steph Curry becomes the first player NBA history to reach 3,700 threes

Warriors guard Steph Curry reached a new milestone in his career, becoming the first player in the history of the NBA to score 3,700 three-point field goals.

Curry reached the 3,700 mark with 7:34 remaining in the third quarter of the Warriors' matchup against the Timberwolves. While Warriors fans may celebrate their star point guard's accomplishment, there is much more on the line for Curry and Golden State. With the Houston Rockets becoming red hot and dropping only a single game in March, a Warriors loss would bring them within a game of the Rockets for the race for the NBA play-in tournament, with Golden State currently holding the No. 10 seed.

Curry, already regarded as one of the greatest shooters in the league's history, added another accolade to his already phenomenal career. Along with reaching 3,700 career threes, the four-time NBA champion and two-time MVP holds the single-season record for most threes made in a season (402) in the 2015-2016 season.
