There’s an old cliche that when one door closes another one opens. It’s a phrase that is easy to look to as Kyle Korver and the Atlanta Hawks move forward from Wednesday’s loss to the Portland Trail Blazers that saw an end to Korver’s 127 consecutive games with a three-pointer streak.
Seeing such an impressive streak end is always a disappointment, but there are still more achievements to be playing for.
Whether Korver is destined for more achievements remains to be seen, but getting a new streak going is something that he is already known to be capable of.
Friday night could have been the beginning to another streak for Kyle as he drained a 3 in a loss to the Golden State Warriors. He finished the night 1-of-5 from the perimeter in what was another rough night for the sharpshooter.
With the Hawks getting a few of their injured players back, the struggles of the team offensively may begin to subside and Korver’s struggles could follow as well. The shooting specialist has been a large part of the Hawks offense, especially in the absence of Al Horford. With the return of Paul Millsap to the lineup, Korver should see a few opportunities that have been absent with Millsap on the bench.
Korver will get a chance to extend his new streak tonight against in Los Angeles against the Clippers.
