Klay, Steph share laugh about Ray Allen's 3-point record originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea. Klay Thompson and Steph Curry were all smiles after the Warriors' 118-91 blowout win over the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.
Thompson, who is rehabbing from a torn right Achilles, conducted the postgame interview on NBC Sports Bay Area. He wanted to know how long until his Splash Brother breaks Ray Allen's all-time record for 3-pointers.
The funny part is, Thompson didn't realize how far away Curry still is from Allen.
Thompson: "How much longer until you break Ray Allen's 3-pointer record?"
Curry: "I mean, you're in the booth right now, so it's your job to know these stats, to be able to do the quick math and you're supposed to be able to tell me?"
Thompson: "Ah man, how many ... Bob [Fitzgerald] ... what do you think? 40 games?"
Fitzgerald: "He's 400 behind, Klay."
Thompson: "Ah, shoot. Two seasons. Season and a half."
With six 3-pointers Saturday night against the Pistons, Curry now has 2,584 career 3-pointers. He needs 389 more to tie Allen and 390 to break the record.
