#KyleStreak Hits 83

Kyle Korver stretched his three-point streak to 83 consecutive games Saturday night in a win over the Knicks.

Korver had three wide open looks early in the first quarter and missed them all, but based on New York’s defense (or lackthereof) on him early on, I was never worried that the streak was in jeopardy.  Sure enough, Korver connected on attempt number four with just over four minutes left in the opening quarter.  The Hawks caught a break because Iman Shumpert, Korver’s defender, had fallen down after making a shot.  Korver inbounded the ball to Jeff Teague, then sprinted to the left wing ahead of Shumpert, who was still trying to catch up.  Teague created space by bringing Raymond Felton away from Korver’s spot, then hit Korver in stride for a catch-and-shoot three.

The Knicks did a good job on Korver on Wednesday, not allowing him to get a triple until the fourth quarter.  On Saturday he made three on eight attempts, but believe me, he could have easily made all eight, as they were good looks.  Watch him extend the streak below:
