Kyle Korver Extends Historic 3-point Streak to 78 Straight Games, Ties Dennis Scott for 3rd Longest All-Time

Atlanta Hawks sharpshooter Kyle Korver didn’t waste any time extending his historic 3-point streak to 78 straight games with a made 3-pointer as he cashed home a trifecta three minutes into the first quarter of Thursday’s game in Denver.

Korver is now tied with former Orlando Magic long-range assassin 3-D, Dennis Scott for the third longest such streak in NBA history. He needs just 12 more consecutive games with a made 3-pointer to move to #1 all-time in front of Dana Barros, who currently holds the record at 89 straight games.
