Allen Sets NBA's 3-Point Record

Ray Allen is the NBA's new all-time leader in 3-point baskets.

Allen hit a 3 with 1:48 left in the first quarter against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night to surpass Reggie Miller atop the league's career list. With two in the game, he had 2,561 3-pointers.

Miller, a former Indiana Pacers star, was courtside at the TD Garden working on the TNT television broadcast. Allen walked over to him during the next break, and then bumped fists with Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

Allen got to the record a little faster than Miller, needing 6,430 shots to reach the record. Miller took 6,486 shots from 3-point range in his 18-year career with the Indiana Pacers.
