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:

Miller hit 320 three-pointers in 144 playoff games during his 18-year career. Thursday night was the 131st postseason game of Allen's 17-year career.

To his credit, the former Indiana Pacers great graciously accepted his spot at No. 2 on the list, showing no envy or animosity toward the new record-holder:

And Allen was a big reason why. He led all scorers with 23 points, converting on 5-of-8 long-range attempts.
