Stephen Curry became the NBA's third most prolific 3-point shooter in the Warriors' 146-109 thumping of the Bulls, and he hopes to get the game ball signed by the two players left for him to surpass.

Two-time MVP Curry hit five of his 11 attempts from beyond the arc to move past Jason Terry's 2,282 3-pointers, leaving just Ray Allen (2,973) and Reggie Miller (2,560) in front of him.

Curry, 30, was proud of his "special accomplishment" and wants the leading duo to help him commemorate the occasion with a special souvenir.

"I did [keep the game ball]," Curry said. "I'm gonna try to send it to Reggie and Ray to get them to sign it for me.

"It's just a special accomplishment, in terms of two guys that I know are trendsetters in stretching the imagination of the 3-point game, doing it for many, many, many years, and people that I looked up to as a young kid playing the game.

"Obviously with my dad [Dell Curry] sparked a love of shooting the basketball - to look up on the list and obviously I want to catch them and put together many more years at this pace, but just knowing those two guys are right in front of me, it's a special moment, for sure.

"Because I respect the game, I respect what guys have done before, and those two guys – those are guys I looked up to."

Warriors teammate Kevin Durant has no doubt Curry, who he feels displays "artistry" on the court, will eventually top the list.

"It's definitely cool," Durant said, "but we all knew he was going to break the record.

"He's set such a high standard, a high bar. It is cool, but you got what, another season or two before you get to the No. 1 spot, and then you're going to shatter that record, so I'm waiting for that.

"He just brings out the best in everybody. When your best players work hard, then everybody has to follow their blueprint."

Durant, also 30, is 30th on the list with 1,510. Curry has 2,285. Utah's Kyle Korver, 37, is fifth all time with 2,280 3-pointers.

"When you've got somebody like Steph," Durant continued, "who has a supreme skill, since we're talking about his jump shot at this point, that doesn't come by just his dad being Dell Curry and he passed those powers down. He worked on that, and he continues to work on that.

"And it's a joy to see, and to see the production out on the floor and how he ties everything together, it's just pure artistry."

Stephen Curry keen to build momentum as Steve Kerr reaches milestone with Warriors.
The Golden State Warriors are on a 10-game winning streak in the NBA, yet Stephen Curry is adamant there is still more to come.
