Automatic doesn’t even begin to describe Kyle Korver.
With a made three in the first quarter against the Miami Heat, Korver extended his streak of consecutive games with a made three-pointer to 84 straight games.
Korver, a career .420 shooting from long-range, is in his 11th season in the NBA. The Atlanta Hawks are his fourth team since entering the league out of Creighton University.
Korver is chasing Dana Barros for the all-time record, who played for the Boston Celtics in the late 90′s when he set the modern record at 89.
Barros’s record of 89 straight games with a made three-pointer is quietly under serious threat of being overtaken by Korver, who has become one of the game’s all-time three-point shooters.
Korver already owns the second-longest streak at 84, and doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon. He finished with nine points on three-of-five shooting from behind the arc in tonight’s loss to the Miami Heat.
Korver is on pace to set the new record with 90 straight games with a made 3-pointer at home in Atlanta against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday, November 29th.
