In the Golden State Warriors' 146-109 blowout win over the Chicago Bulls, Stephen Curry climbed up the ladder on the league's all-time 3-pointers made leaderboard.
While Klay Thompson sparkled in the first half for the Warriors (24 points), with this three in the third quarter, Curry passed Jason Terry (2,282) for the third spot.

2011 NBA Champion Terry did it in 1410 regular season games, however, Curry surpassed him by making more three's in just 656 regular season games.
Curry had previously passed Kyle Korver this season for the fourth spot on this chart, but it will most likely take him another season before he reaches Reggie Miller (2,560) for the second spot on this list. Ray Allen is at the No. 1 spot with 2,973 three-pointers made in 1300 regular season games.
Outscoring the Bulls 43-17 in the first quarter, Curry and the Warriors had this game under control pretty early. If that wasn't enough, they dropped 40 points in the third quarter as well, eventually cruising to a 37-point win with the starters hardly taking the court in the final period.
Curry finished the game with 28 points, eight assists, and five rebounds on 62.5% shooting from the field and 45.5% (5-of-11) from beyond the arc. Klay, who did most of his damage in the first quarter, recorded 30 for the night on 55.6% shooting and making 7 three's on 11 attempts.

With the splash brothers catching fire, the two-time reigning Finals MVP Kevin Durant had a relatively easy night, putting 22 points, five assists and four rebounds on 63.6% shooting in 29 minutes.
As a team, the Warriors shot 57.6% from the field, 46.2% from beyond the arc and recorded 37 assists on their 53 made field goals.
In the process, Golden State handed the Chicago Bulls their sixth straight loss. The visitors had four players score in double figures led by Zach LaVine, who had 29 on 62.5% shooting.
Scoring 109 points while shooting 44.9% from the field and making three's at a 45.0% clip with just 13 turnovers, the Bulls' performance wasn't particularly bad. They just came against the unstoppable Warriors' offense, fueled by the Splash brothers, that finished the night with 146 points.
The points tally of 146 is Golden State's second-highest of the season, behind their 149-point night in Chicago when Klay broke the record for most three's in a single game (14).
