Kyle Korver’s unending accuracy has produced one of the most remarkable streaks in recent history. What does it say about a play who has perfected his craft so well that he can perform in 100 straight tries?
With a three-point make against the Orlando Magic on Sunday, Korver reached 100 straight games win a triple, extending his NBA record over Dana Barros, who he supplanted earlier this year.
This streak has spanned two seasons (both with the Hawks) beginning on November 4th, 2012, and he has shot a remarkable 47% from behind the arc during the streak, better than the respective streaks of Barros, Dennis Scott and Michael Adams, three people he passed this season.
As a 12-year NBA player out of Creighton University, Kyle is a career 42.3% shooter from long range and has helped cement his status as one of the game’s all time great shooters. This season, he’s posting a ridiculous 50.0% clip from three and an astounding 67.4 eFG%. No one is rooting for it to end anytime soon, and Korver can begin his quest for 200 straight with a three today against the Boston Celtics.
