All good things must come to an end.

Over the last year and a half, Kyle Korver has exhibited a shooting display unmatched in modern basketball history. For a record setting 127 games, Korver had made at least one three-pointer in every contest until Wednesday’s loss to the Portland Trailblazers.

Korver could never find an opening from behind the arc and as a result went 0-5 from deep. He finished with only 5 points on 1-9 shooting from the field. The shot chart below is every bit what you might expect.

Kyle Korver finished the night without logging a three-pointer, leaving his record at 127 games but no longer counting. It still easily supplants Dana Barros’ streak of 89 games that Korver broke earlier in the season. The next highest total is Stephen Curry with 50 straight games with a three-pointer.

With Korver’s streak no longer in the picture, the focus turns on the Hawks to stop the current eight-game road losing skid and get back in the win column.
