The 10-year veteran already took No. 1 on the postseason three-pointer list and is third on the regular-season ledger behind only Ray Allen and Reggie Miller.

Curry and the Warriors are shooting for their fourth NBA title in five seasons against Toronto, which is making its first championship appearance since the franchise began play in 1995.
