If there's someone who knows a thing or two about the three-point shot, it's Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics. Allen, in his 15th season in the league, is closing in on the record for the most three-point shots made in NBA history.

His mark of 2,533 is just 27 shy of future Hall of Famer Reggie Miller's record 2,560 three-pointers. Miller played 18 seasons in the league, all of which were with the Indiana Pacers. 

This season Allen is on a tear, shooting a whopping 47.8% from distance and averaging 2.2 a game.

Last night, in an important win against the Magic, Allen was three of four from the three-point line, with two coming in crunch time.

Fitting the occasion, here are 10 of the best shooters from distance in NBA history.
