Hawks’ Kyle Korver on verge of breaking three-point record

There’s always a raincloud wherever Atlanta Hawks guard-forward Kyle Korver goes, but it doesn’t carry precipitation—more like 3-pointers. Now in his 11th season in the NBA, Korver continues to rain shots from behind the 3-point line and on Friday night, he could make history by breaking the record for 3-point baskets made in consecutive games.

On Wednesday night in a 107-97 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, Korver tied Dana Barros’ record with 89 straight games in which he’s drained at least one 3-point shot. Barros accomplished the feat from Dec. 23, 1994 to Jan. 10, 1996—an almost 18-year record that could be broken if Korver connects on a 3-point shot Friday night at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Korver scored 23 points against the Clippers, including 6-of-9 from behind the arc. If he does indeed break the record, he’ll be quick to thank his teammates rather than himself.

"It really is a team streak," said Korver, who previously missed four games due to a rib injury. "I'm not out there creating those shots. I don't want to make a speech, but there are a lot of people to thank."
