It wasn’t the historic 3-point streak he had earlier this season, but Atlanta Hawks sharpshooter Kyle Korver’s new streak was snapped on Friday, as he failed to hit a 3-pointer in Atlanta’s impressive road win at Brooklyn.
Korver’s 127 consecutive game streak with a made 3 — which dated back to the 2011-12 season — was snapped earlier this year on March 5 at Portland.
He started a new streak the following game at Golden State and built it up to 13 games in a row, but failed to drain a long-range bomb Friday night at Brooklyn, going 0-of-5 from behind the arc in the Hawks’ 93-88 win, which snapped Brooklyn’s 15-game home winning streak.
The 10-year veteran is having his best season yet, averaging 12.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game while shooting 93.4 percent from the free throw line — all career-high marks. He’s also shooting nearly identical marks from 3-point range and the field overall this season, as he’s shooting 47.2 percent from the perimeter and 47.3 overall. The 3P% and FG% are his second and third-best marks in those categories in his career, respectively.
Despite Korver’s second 3-point streak of 2014 coming to an end, he’ll get the chance to start another new streak on Saturday at Miami.
