It was only a matter of time until the record for most 3-pointers in an NBA Final was broken. Spurs Danny Green set the mark in 2013 with 26 makes. On Thursday, Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry moved ahead of Green.

During the Warriors 101-115 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Curry broke the NBA record for most 3-pointers made in the NBA Finals with still one game left. There will be more added to the title after Game 7 on Sunday.

Green put on a dominating performance in the 2013 NBA Finals. Though the Spurs were defeated by the Miami Heat in seven games, it was still one of the highlights of the series. Curry has shown this season that he is one of the league’s best shooters. There is no question that the record would

be broken. Many may believe it would be by Curry.

Curry has torched the net all season from the perimeter. During the regular season, he hit 45-percent of his 3-pointers making 402 of 886 attempts. In the playoffs this year, he has made 71 of 183 for 41-percent.

Green is not too shabby of a shooter himself. Though he may not have had his best season for San Antonio shooting wise, having him ranked within the top two shooters in NBA History during the Finals says something.

For his career, Green is a 42-percent shooter from beyond the arc, hitting 731 of 1812 attempts. All Green has to do now is go back to work, help San Antonio make it back to the Finals and get back that record, even though it will be around 34 when it is all said in done from Steph Curry.
