Congratulations!: Ray Allen Passes Reggie Miller In 3-Pointers Made In NBA History!

- By Bossip Staff

Congrats to Jesus Shuttlesworth Ray Allen, you’ve been shooting the hell out of the rock consistently for years now, you deserve this.

BOSTON — Ray Allen broke the NBA record for 3-pointers on Thursday night, sinking two in the first quarter against the Lakers as the man he passed, Reggie Miller, sat courtside working the TV broadcast.

Allen hit his second 3 of the game with 1:48 left in the first quarter to reach 2,561 in his career — a number that flashed on the scoreboard in green and white while the TD Garden erupted in applause.

The 38-year-old Celtic celebrated little as he got back on defense, but at the next whistle went over to Miller for a hug and a handshake, then bumped fists with Lakers star Kobe Bryant.
“I’m just so happy for him because this is one of the best guys,” Miller said on the TNT broadcast. “He’s so humble, he’s so giving, he’s a great family man and I’m excited. This is great. This is great for the game of basketball. You know why? We’re focusing and talking about shooting.”

The record-breaker came on a transition basket from the right side on a pass from Rajon Rondo. The sold-out crowd at the TD Garden — the visit by the rival Lakers would have been enough for that — cheered, and his teammates rose out of their seats.

After the quarter ended, Allen exchanged a few words and another hug with Miller, then went down the sideline to receive his family’s congratulations. Allen made one more in the game to finish two ahead Miller, but the Boston Celtics lost the NBA finals rematch 92-86.

“It’s so serendipitous that it happened the way it happened. For us to be sitting here, Reggie’s in the building and he’s in the building able to work the game,” Allen said before the game. “He just told me he was proud of me and he was excited for me. He said he was glad that he could be here in this moment.”

Miller has been cheering Allen on as he pursed the record, and the former Indiana Pacers star said people shouldn’t be surprised.

“All records are made to be broken,” Miller said. “I had a conversation with Ray earlier tonight and he was like, ‘When I was a rookie and I came to Market Square Arena and I saw you for 3 to 3{ hours before (the game) shooting, that’s how I wanted to patent my game.”‘

This is a great moment in your career sir, you should celebrate it with your family and WIFE! We repeat, your WIFE, not those eHoes and iHookers. We ain’t forgot…
