Atlanta Hawks swingman Cartier Martin surpassed a milestone in Saturday night’s loss to the Washington Wizards.

By knocking down a 3-pointer from the left wing at the 6:47 mark in the fourth quarter, Martin reached and exceeded 1,000 career points. He needed just 10 points to reach the milestone entering Saturday’s game in Washington and finished with 12. He now has 1,002 points over his six-year NBA career.

Martin replaced Kyle Korver, who has been out the last three games with a rib contusion, in the starting lineup and finished with a .571 shooting percentage, sinking four-of-seven attempts overall, including going two-of-four from deep, in 31 minutes of action.

In 178 career NBA games, Martin has averages of 5.6 points and 2.1 rebounds with a .387 shooting percentage in 14.7 minutes per contest. He is averaging 7.4 points and 2.1 boards per game with the Hawks this season.
