PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Stephen Curry set a NBA single-season record for 3-pointers with 272 and the Golden State Warriors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 99-88 on Wednesday in the season finale for both teams.

It was the 13th straight loss for the Blazers, equaling the franchise record set in the 1971-72 season.

Curry surpassed Ray Allen's single-season 3-point total of 269 set in 2005-06. Needing two for the record, Curry opened the game with two straight misses from beyond the arc, but hit his first midway through the first quarter before making the record-breaker with 6:49 to go in the second.

His backcourt teammate Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 24 points.

With the win, Golden State (47-35) clinched the sixth seed in the Western Conference and will face the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs.
