With 14 games remaining in the Golden State Warriors' 2013-14 campaign, Diamond Leung of the San Jose Mercury News reports that guard Stephen Curry has already set an NBA record for most three-pointers made over a span of two seasons.

Curry has hit 484 treys since the beginning of 2012-13, topping the previous two-season mark of 478 set by Ray Allen in 2004-05 and 2005-06 as a member of the Seattle SuperSonics.

Never one to be bashful when it comes to shooting, Curry stormed past Allen's record in impressive fashion during Sunday's 113-112 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Entering the contest tied at 478 three-pointers with the current Miami Heat shooting guard, Curry didn't score a point in the first quarter and didn't take sole possession of the two-season record until there were nine seconds remaining in the second quarter.

Once he had the record in hand, the Warriors' fifth-year point guard exploded for 28 second-half points, with five of his six three-pointers coming after the break. He made six of his 12 three-point attempts and 11 of his 24 field-goal attempts as part of a 37-point night.

With the two-season record locked down and the three-season record coming next year, health permitting, Curry may be done with milestones until 2014-15.

The single-season three-pointers recordβ€”held by none other than himselfβ€”is not entirely out of reach, but would require an impressive hot streak.

Curry made an NBA-record 272 treys last season and he has 212 through 65 games in 2013-14. With the Warriors having played 68 games, Curry would need to play in each of the final 14 contests and average 4.36 three-pointers per game in order to set a new record.

He's averaging just 3.26 per game this season and he had 3.49 per game last season, so the single-season record should hold upβ€”at least for another year.

Before he retires, Curry will likely make a run at 300 treys in one season and only a fool would bet against the game's premier marksman hitting his mark.
