With his third 3-pointer against the New York Knicks on Sunday - the 1,831st triple of his career - Stephen Curry moved past Chauncey Billups for 10th on the all-time leaderboard.

The Golden State Warriors superstar accomplished the feat early in the third quarter when he pulled up several steps behind the top of the arc:

Curry has managed to crack the top 10 in just his eighth NBA campaign, and will almost certainly continue his climb up the ladder. He passed Kobe Bryant for 11th in career 3-point makes earlier this week, and is now 72 treys behind ninth-place Joe Johnson.

Rank Player 3-pointers
1 Ray Allen 2973
2 Reggie Miller 2560
3 Jason Terry 2217
4 Paul Pierce 2138
5 Kyle Korver 2018
6 Jamal Crawford 2014
7 Vince Carter 2013
8 Jason Kidd 1988
9 Joe Johnson 1903
10 Stephen Curry 1831

There hasn't been a more prolific long-range sniper than Curry since the NBA introduced the 3-point line in 1979-80. The 28-year-old attempts 54.4 percent of his shots from 3-point territory and hits 3.9 threes per game. He registers 24.8 points while shooting 46.4 percent from the field and 40 percent from beyond the arc.

Chef Curry leads the league in 3-pointers with 238 this season. In fact, he's led the Association in long bombs the last four years, and has set the record for most threes in a season three times. He's currently on pace to hit over 300 in 2016-17, which would be the second-highest mark ever, only trailing his 402 from last year.
