If you’re not aware, Kyle Korver of the Atlanta Hawks has hit at least one 3-pt shot in 120 straight games. He last played a game without notching a 3-pt basket on November 2nd, 2012. The previous record for consecutive games with at least one 3-pt basket was 90.
Is this streak getting noticed outside Atlanta? I doubt it, since it’s not getting THAT much buzz inside Atlanta, but then again, the Hawks rarely do.
To me, it’s really kind of an amazing feat. I think it compares in some ways with a hitting streak in baseball. I’m tuning in some nights JUST to see if he keeps the streak going. There is a heightened sense of tension when he shoots from behind the line.
This Bleacher Report story has some good info on Korver and the streak.
