Golden State Warriors talisman Steph Curry broke the all-time three-point record when he leapfrogged Ray Allen’s tally. Curry scored the record-breaking 2974th triple of his career when 7:44 were left on the clock against New York Knicks on Tuesday night at the iconic Madison Square Garden.

He said in the video, “I just want to say thank you all so much for the support, the love, the energy for last night. I woke up feeling really special this morning, and I can’t thank you all enough for just being there for this whole journey.
