Well, that didn't take long.

Just weeks after Miami Heat sharpshooter Ray Allen saw his previous record for made three-pointers in a single season broken by Golden State Warriors marksman Stephen Curry, the first-year Heat sniper shot his way back into the record books on Thursday night.

Early in the fourth quarter of Miami's 104-91 Game 3 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, Allen buried a corner three to surpass Reggie Miller for the most made playoff three-pointers in league history:
