NBA Playoffs: All-time leaders in postseason career 3-pointers

Given the evolution of the game, especially over the past decade, any major stat category related to 3-pointers should have plenty of active players high up on its leaderboard.

Stephen Curry, arguably the greatest shooter in NBA history, dominates the chart for most 3s made in the playoffs with 470 in 112 games. The next best is Hall of Famer Ray Allen, who is second with 385 3-pointers, while Curry's teammate Klay Thompson slots in at 3rd with 374.

Here's a look at the top 10 players with the most career postseason 3s:
