Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Stephen Curry talked about the love he’s getting on the road while chasing Ray Allen’s record.
“Anytime you do something special, you want to enjoy the atmosphere, and the support and all that. I appreciate it.” pic.twitter.com/yqGrv9MfxE11:37 PM

Tony East @TEastNBA
Over half (9) of the Pacers 17 losses have been by fewer than five points. An almost unbelievable stat to see written out, yet completely believable when watching this team at the end of games. – 11:35 PM

Trey Burke came off the bench and scored a season-high 22 points on 9-14 shooting to go with a season-high 6 assists.
His previous high on the season was 14 points vs. WAS (11/27/21), and the 22 points are his most in a game since he scored 22 at IND last season on 1/20/21. pic.twitter.com/1hdhAJdXq311:26 PM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Draymond Green on if they’re forcing the ball to Stephen Curry so he can break the record:
“That’s always a good option. So it’s not like you’re trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. We play that way anyway.” pic.twitter.com/vu0Xtrtghi11:18 PM

Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
With Grant Williams moving into the top 5 in the NBA in 3-point shooting, seems like a good night to update the all-time leaders

Curry still two 3-pointers short of record but leads Warriors past Pacers nba.nbcsports.com/2021/12/13/cur…11:01 PM
Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
If Steph Curry plays 50 more games this season and maintains his current average, he’ll have 3,242 career 3s.
Since 2015, he’s averaged 4.8 makes per game.
If he does that for 5 more years while playing 72 games each season, he’ll be at 4,970.
5,000 is absolutely within reach. – 10:47 PM

Embiid-less, Curry-less Sixers get drilled by an impressive Memphis team, 126-91. They are 15-13 on the year.
Tyrese Maxey (23 points) and Charles Bassey (13 and 10) the only bright spots on what was maybe the most unwatchable game of a season that has already had a few of em. – 10:16 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Kerr couldn’t help but tweak the media that Steph would rest Tuesday at MSG. He was joking — but he acknowledged that it would be a “relief” both for Curry, and the rest of the team, when he’s finally able to break the record. – 10:13 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Steve Kerr on Steph Curry: “I think he’s been trying a little bit too hard the last few games, trying to make 3s and get to this record. It’ll be a relief, for him and this team, when he does break it.” pic.twitter.com/OcIPMonSMZ10:07 PM

Jeff Eisenband @JeffEisenband
The New York Knicks were 1 pick away from drafting Stephen Curry in 2009.
Naturally he’ll likely break the NBA’s all-time 3-pointers record in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night. pic.twitter.com/tS8iZrGSQO10:06 PM

Old habits die hard. anticipated blitz of Curry. Looney short rolls. Non shooter Green spots up but turns into screener off toss action to get it back to Curry…but this game is lost opposite wing. No one puts a body on Wiggins. Free run to rim creates 2nd chance #PacersWarriors pic.twitter.com/0z9JqrbOiP9:59 PM

Stephen Curry now likely to break the record for career 3-pointers Tuesday at Madison Square Garden, where he holds the arena record with 11 3-pointers in his sensational 54-point game on Feb. 27, 2013. – 9:59 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
‘I’m resting Steph tomorrow.’ Warriors coach Steve Kerr couldn’t resist toying with media in postgame.
Curry might go Sprewell if Kerr tried to sit him vs Knicks at MSG – 9:58 PM

Just found out something crazy — the Golden State Warriors drafted Stephen Curry one (1) pick ahead of where the Knicks were drafting, and now he’s going to break the 3-point record at Madison Square Garden which some people refer to as “the Mecca of basketball” – 9:47 PM
Mark Montieth @MarkMontieth
Pacers’ players as a group lack the mental toughness to close out games, but the coaches lack the imagination to set up plays for a good shot – throughout games. Too much one-on-one as four guys line up around the perimeter. Hard to understand given Carlisle’s coaching history. – 9:44 PM

Kevon Looney finished with a season-high 14 points (career-best is 15) to go with eight rebounds, hitting the game-winning lay-up with 13.4 seconds remaining. – 9:42 PM

Warriors star Stephen Curry will be at legendary Madison Square Garden to play the Knickerbockers tomorrow night just 2 3-pointers away from breaking Ray Allen’s NBA 3-pointer record.

There it is – Warriors beat the Pacers. Game over.
Steph Curry is two made 3-pointers shy of passing Ray Allen for the all-time record.

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Draymond gotta say he meant that – 9:36 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors turn it over on their final possession — fitting, they had 18 turnovers — but Pacers don’t have a timeout or a chance to find a final shot. Warriors survive ugly one in Indianapolis. Steph Curry labored to 26 points, five 3s. Two from the record. Warriors are 22-5. – 9:36 PM
Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin
Steph Curry is just two 3-pointers away from breaking Ray Allen’s all-time 3-point record after the Warriors’ 102-100 win over Indiana.

Turner, Duarte, Lamb, Martin, and Brissett combined to shoot 8/37 tonight. Pacers offensive leaders made it happen. The role players struggled mightily.
Pacers fall to the Warriors 102-100. They let this game slip away. – 9:35 PM
Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
Stephen Curry will need just two 3-pointers at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night to break Ray Allen’s all-time NBA record for 3s (2,973) after Curry made five in Golden State’s victory tonight at Indiana.

We’ve seen this script plenty. Pacers falter in crunchtime, lose to the Warriors 102-100. LeVert turned it over on their final chance.
They were up 5 with 4:26 left, then outscored 11-4. Now 1-9 in games decided by 4pts or less.
Sabonis finished with 30/11; Brogdon had 23-6-8. – 9:35 PM

Trae Young has recorded his NBA-leading 12th 30+ scoring outing of the 2021-22 season (currently with 30 points).

A dramatic final minute in Indy. Steph is two away from breaking the record. Pacers and Warriors tied up at 100. Crowd on its feet during each possession now.
Steph now 5-for-14 from beyond the arc so far tonight. – 9:27 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Surprised that wasn’t an and-one for Curry. Turner was out of control – 9:27 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors down five late: Steph Curry wing 3, driving layup. Tied game. He’s one 3 from tying the record, two from breaking it. Tie game in Indianapolis, 48 seconds left. Warriors trying to stumble into a win despite an off night. – 9:27 PM
Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Curry one 3 away from tying Ray. Game tied at 100. 47 seconds left – 9:27 PM

Pacers take a timeout with the game tied at 100. They have the ball with 47.2 seconds to go. Awesome game. Curry just scored 5 points in the 36 seconds to tie the game. – 9:26 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Why is Myles Turner taking so many threes? – 9:26 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Team just looks like they don’t have it tonight. This is a tough ask to go into Memphis and beat a good Grizzlies team while missing Seth Curry and Joel Embiid. They find themselves down 73-58 in the 3rd quarter. #Sixers9:26 PM

Green gets to rim bc a pitch is anticipated. Keeps it for a layup. Sabonis anticipated wrong. No need to be level on the action v a non-shooter if there’s rear pursuit. A drop would eliminate the drive #PacersWarriors9:22 PM

Brogdon has had a ridiculous game. Making it happen on both ends. – 9:21 PM

Pacers lead 84-80 after 3 quarters. They survived an early quarter Warriors run to hold their lead. Sabonis has 25 and 8 and is driving most of the Pacers success, but good defense from Duarte, Brissett, and Brogdon have been big for the team as well. – 8:59 PM

Warriors: 11 turnovers, 13 fouls in the first half. They’re down eight to the Pacers. Mini offensive slump is worsening. Steph Curry was sloppy. Lost his dribble a couple times and threw a pass into the front row. – 8:16 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Steph shaking his head on the way to the bench — frustrated with himself. He finishes the first half 4-for-10 from the field — but with four turnovers. Warriors’ offense looked discombobulated throughout the 1st half — they’re down 55-47 and have 11 turnovers. – 8:16 PM

Pacers leading the Warriors 55-47 at half. Both teams shooting poorly from range. Warriors have 12 TOs.

The last warmup triple before what could be a record setting night. Staying true to form, Curry walked off the floor and signed autographs for a few minutes. He seems to be really loose tonight. pic.twitter.com/EBFPN6cgZ26:17 PM

Curry cont: “Nothing really changes besides the anticipation of something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time.” – 6:04 PM
Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
Curry cont: “You have a certain process and routine. I think about it a lot. But it’s not like you come out & you’re counting every time you make a 3, like ‘Oh, this is 7, 8,’ whatever it is.” – 6:04 PM
Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
Steph Curry on pending milestone: “This one is different. I’ve got a lot left in my career, but it is a career-type milestone that I’ve been thinking about for many years. Playoffs and all that type of stuff, you’re chasing championships. It’s kind of business as usual.” – 6:03 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Tonight will be Steph Curry’s 788th game. He’s 7 threes away from owning the NBA’s all-time threes record. Ray Allen set record in 1300 games. – 5:46 PM
Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
On the cusp of Steph Curry owning the NBA’s all-time three point record, Kerr said, “He looks like a normal guy, and he acts like one too.” Great quality for a team leader, Kerr added. – 5:43 PM

Steph/Warriors fans pouring into The Fieldhouse 2hrs before tip-off. And during Lloyd Pierce’s pre-game availability, there were 28 people in the room — easily the most of the season.
There’s almost as many reporters on the Warriors beat (5) as people in here for a typical game. pic.twitter.com/xefB812C8v5:33 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers forward Justin Holiday, who was isolated while in the health & safety protocols for 12 days, won’t play tonight vs Warriors. He called Lloyd Pierce today to alert him that he’s not ready just yet. – 5:23 PM
Indiana Pacers @Pacers
Justin Holiday (return to competition reconditioning) will not play tonight, according to assistant coach Lloyd Pierce. – 5:22 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Justin Holiday will not play tonight, Lloyd Pierce says. Brad Wanamaker is IN. – 5:21 PM
Jordan Schultz @Schultz_Report
#Pacers are fielding many calls for wing Caris LeVert, whose versatile skill set – particularly his dynamic playmaking and scoring ability – is highly coveted by multiple executives I’ve spoken with. It’s my understanding that Indiana has made LeVert available at the right price. – 5:14 PM
Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin
Steph chatted with Draymond for two hours after the incident w KD in 2018. He told him he could’ve handled it better. But he also told him that he had his back — always.
“That, for me, that’s big,” Green told me.

The Suns, Warriors, Jazz, Nets and Bucks earned top billing, but which team belongs in ESPN’s Top 5 power rankings that wasn’t there this week?
The 76ers?
The Lakers?
I’m thinking the Grizzlies… pic.twitter.com/kn8K1FKPDv4:47 PM

With all the Sabonis-Suns talk today, a reminder that such a deal seems pretty unlikely compared to a few other Pacers targets that make more sense. Wrote about all of that last week: bit.ly/3lI1Q9h1:30 PM

As Stephen Curry gets close to breaking all-time 3-point shooting record, TNT will telecast Knicks-Warriors at Garden Tuesday with Brian Anderson and Reggie Miller on the call. – 1:16 PM
