Houston Rockets Tie Record: Top 20 Teams with the Most Three-Pointers in a Game
Jeremy Lin (5), James Harden (4) and Chandler Parsons (4) combined for 13 three-pointers tonight, and the Houston Rockets tied the all-time record for three-pointers made in a game as they beat the Golden State Warriors 140-109.
The Rockets had 23 treys, tying the Orlando Magic of 2009, who did it on the road (A).
Forty-one teams in NBA history sunk 17 three-pointers in a game. Then, the field really shrinks. Only 18 teams dropped 18 three-pointers. Then, you have today’s list – the top 20 teams with the most three-pointers in a game – or every team with at least 19 of them.
Have you noticed the increasing importance of the 3P in the NBA over the past decade, or at least the reckless abandon with which many teams are embracing the long-distance shot?
A full 22 of the 23 teams listed below made their mark post-2005, which is borderline shocking. And five are from this season, barely past its halfway point. What happened to the 1980s and 1990s?Follow @VinGetz
