Sixers coach Doc Rivers coached Allen during their time together with the Boston Celtics so he understands what a terrific shooter looks like. Curry is averaging 13.4 3-point attempts in the 2021-22 season while the most triples Allen attempted per game was 8.4 in the 2005-06 season with the then-Settle SuperSonics. “We didn’t take that many 3s and yet Ray was still able to get the record that he got with the way we played. What was Ray’s high in 3-point attempts in a game? Does anybody know that? And then how many times? It would be interesting to look at that.”
The most 3-pointers Allen ever attempted in a season was 269 in that 2005-06 season in Seattle. Obviously, the more 3-pointers you put up, the better chance you have to make them, but both Curry and Allen are two of the greatest shooters to ever play the game.
