Steph becomes third NBA player to make 2,500 3-pointers originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Steph Curry reached another career milestone early in the Warriors' game against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday at the United Center.

The Warriors star became the third player in NBA history to make 2,500 3-pointers in his career, joining Hall of Famers Ray Allen and Reggie Miller.

The milestone 3-pointer came with one minute remaining in the first quarter and tied the score at 22.

The two-time NBA MVP likely will pass Miller (2,560) for second on the all-time leaderboard sometime this season, but Allen's 2,973 triples might not be surpassed until next season.

This is another in a long line of 3-point milestones Curry has reached, as he led the NBA in 3-pointers for five consecutive seasons from 2012-13 to 2016-17, and he still holds the single-season record for 402 in 2015-16.

Houston Rockets star James Harden is the closest active player to Curry on the all-time list, with 2,330 makes.

Curry has been a large part of the NBA's evolution toward emphasizing the 3-point shot, and this won't be the last milestone we see him surpass before his career comes to a close.
