(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. Golden State (47-35) had to wait for the game between the Lakers and Rockets to finish before learning their first-round opponent in the playoffs.


LaMarcus Aldridge had 30 points and a season-high 21 rebounds for Portland (33-49), which lost its eighth straight at home.
