NBA Playoffs: All-time leaders in postseason career 3-pointers

Given the evolution of the game, especially over the past decade, any major stat category related to 3-pointers should have plenty of active players high up on its leaderboard.

Stephen Curry, arguably the greatest shooter in NBA history, dominates the chart for most 3s made in the playoffs with 470 in 112 games. Second is LeBron James while the next best is Hall of Famer Ray Allen, who is third with 385 3-pointers, who is followed up by Curry's teammate Klay Thompson at 4th with 374.

Here's a look at the top 10 players with the most career postseason 3s:
