Stephen Curry sets a new NBA record for the most career three-pointers every time he hits a shot from beyond the arc at this point, but he reached a new milestone Tuesday.

With a third-quarter triple against the Denver Nuggets, the 33-year-old became the first player in NBA history to make 3,000 three-pointers in a single career. The sharpshooter already passed Ray Allen for the most three-pointers when he hit the 2,974th of his career on Dec. 14 against the New York Knicks.

“It was thrilling to see Steph break the NBA’s all-time record for three-pointers,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. “He has revolutionized the way the game is played and continues to leave fans in awe with his amazing artistry and extraordinary shooting ability. We congratulate him on this historic achievement.”
