In just his tenth season in the league, Stephen Curry has cemented his place as one of the greatest three-point shooters ever. He already holds various three-point shooting records and on Wednesday, he set yet another one.

En route to scoring 36 points in a win against the Timberwolves in Minnesota, the two-time league MVP knocked down eight three-pointers and made NBA history.

Here's Curry's 300th three-pointer of the season:

This is the third time in his career that Curry has made more than 300 three's in a single season, a feat no NBA player has achieved more than once (James Harden - 320* in 2018-19 season). On the all-time list for most made three's in a single season, Curry occupies four of the top five spots.

Curry previously made an NBA record 402 3-pointers during his unanimous league MVP season (2015-16) and followed it up by making 324 in the following season (2016-17).

On the all-time list for most made three-point field goals, Curry ranks third with 2,432 over the course of his career. Only Ray Allen (2973) and Reggie Miller (2560) have made three-pointers.
