Just weeks after Stephen Curry broke Ray Allen’s NBA single season record for 3 pointers made, Jesus Shuttlesworth hit his 321st 3 pointer breaking Reggie Miller’s NBA playoff record for Career 3 pointers made.  The milestone happened in the 4th quarter of game 3 of the Brandon Jennings is no Nostradamus series.

It took Ray Allen 1 less season and 13 less playoff games than Reggie Miller to hit 320 3-pointers and I have a gut feeling that even Steph Curry is going to have a hard time catching and beating this record.  To have this record you need to be a great 3 pointer that goes deep into the playoffs for a lot of seasons or you need to be a good 3 point shooter that goes deep and/or wins a lot of postseasons like #3 on the list Kobe Bryant.

ESPN’s Tom Haberstroh had a bit of trivia to show how amazing this milestone is.  Since Ray’s debut in 96/97, he has more 3 pointers in the playoffs than 8 NBA teams (Mil, Min, Lac, Tor, Gsw, Mem, Cha & Was). Even grumpy old friend Kevin Garnett should congratulate Ray Allen on this milestone.
