OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - One shy of setting a new NBA standard, the question circulating around the Golden State Warriors locker room is when - not if - Stephen Curry will break Ray Allen's single-season record of 269 3-pointers during Wednesday night's finale at Portland.
With the way Curry has shot the ball this season, he's given plenty of reasons to be optimistic.
The rejuvenated Warriors point guard, with his twice surgically repaired right ankle no longer an issue, has shown just what he can do in a season of near-perfect health. He is shooting 45.5 percent from beyond the arc and averaging almost 3½ baskets from long range over his 77 games played.
