Steph Curry is 15 threes away from Ray Allen after Warriors beat Magic

The Golden State Warriors took an easy win over the Orlando Magic at Chase Center as Stephen Curry got within touching distance of passing Ray Allen on the NBA’s all-time 3-pointers made list.

Curry hit seven shots from downtown against the Magic to increase his all-time total to 2,958 made 3-pointers. That leaves him 16 threes away from passing Allen for the top spot.

Despite Curry scoring 31 points in 31 minutes against Orlando, it was Andrew Wiggins who stole the show with one more made triple than Steph.

Wiggins took advantage of his 30 minutes on the floor, scoring 28 points while going 9 of 17 from the field, and 8 of 10 from beyond the arc.

Draymond Green did what he usually does with 7 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, and one block. Green only missed one of his four shots in 28 minutes.

Jordan Poole continued to struggle with his shooting, getting 12 points on 15 tries in 32 minutes of playtime. He did, however, have an amazing highlight play displaying his quickness and agility.

No Magic for Orlando from deep

For the Orlando Magic, nobody was able to get hot from downtown, shooting a team total 38 shots from deep. Only 11 of those 38 triples saw the bottom of the net for a poor 29% shooting from three.

Cole Anthony and Mo Bamba were the biggest dissapointments for Orlando. Bamba played 18 minutes but only managed to grab three boards and score two points.

Anthony played a lot more than Bamba, and did a lot worse, putting up just nine points in 27 minutes on 3 of 11 from the field and missing all five of his 3-point attempts.

The Wagner brothers were on the floor together for some time, and Franz outscored his older sibling Moritz by 14. Franz played 31 minutes and only managed to get 15 points, but Moritz only got one point in 17 minutes.

Who’s up next?

Golden State will look to continue its unstoppable pace as they take on the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday. Trail Blazers will be without Damian Lillard, so Warriors are likely on track for another win like tonight.

The basement Orlando Magic want to get their sixth win of the season, but it won’t be that easy as they take on the Sacramento Kings. With issues of their own, the Kings are on the hunt for their 11th win this year.
