Ray Allen Breaks NBA Career Three-Point Record With His 2,561st Three

Ray Allen has broken the NBA career three-point record with his 2,561st three-pointer with 1:49 remaining in the first quarter of the Celtics’ game against the Lakers at TD Garden on Thursday night.

The sellout crowd on-hand at TD Garden gave Allen a standing ovation following his record-breaking three. Allen was congratulated by teammates, as well as the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant and even Reggie Miller, who held the NBA record for most three pointers made with 2,560 entering tonight’s game.

Miller was in the building to witness Allen tie and break the all-time three-point record, as he is part of the broadcast team for TNT.

Boston currently leads Los Angeles, 34-22, with 10:20 left in the second quarter.
