On Wednesday night, at the age of 26 (and 299 days), Stephen Curry became the youngest player in NBA  history to make 1,000 career 3-pointers. The record was held by JR Smith who had the record at 27 years and 97 days РSmith also skipped college.

More impressive than the age is Curry hit the 1k mark in by far the fewest games. At 369 games, he beat out Dennis “3D” Scott by 88 games!

As for this game, Curry wasn’t just hitting 3-pointers (4 of 8), he dished out a game-high ¬†15 assists to go with his 21 points and 4 steals in just 35 minutes against the Pacers.
