What is the record for 3 pointers made in an NBA Finals game and who has it?
When looking for the three-point king in the NBA, one name towers above all the rest, as Steph Curry shows everyone else how it should be done.
The Warriors missed out on the NBA Finals this year, falling in the Western Conference semifinals to the Lakers, who themselves succumbed to a resurgent Denver.
With Denver’s Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray teaming up for some spectacular play, posting the first two-player triple-double in NBA Finals history, there is one thing that they are still miles away from. Three point glory.
That crown belongs to one man, and one man alone: Stephen Curry.
Steph Curry holds NBA Finals record for 3 pointers
In his six NBA Finals appearances with the Warriors, Curry has made 152 three-pointers, towering over the next-best player, team mate Klay Thompson with 106. He’s also the all-time NBA Finals leader in 3-pointers in a single game with 9 and 3-point attempts in a single game with 17. We’ve laid it all out for you below:
Most career 3-pointers in NBA Finals

Most 3-pointers in an NBA Finals game
Curry broke Ray Allen’s unprecedented record of eight three-pointers in Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals against the Cavaliers when he went for nine. No other player has surpassed either his or Allen’s marks so far.
