Kyle Korver began his record-setting streak of consecutive games with a made three-pointer on November 4, 2012 in Oklahoma City, where he went 1-for-5 from three-point range. Against the Cavaliers, he passed Dana Barros’ record of 89 in the first quarter with a three-pointer on the right-wing. To celebrate his record-setting achievement, we are going to look back at how he got to 90 consecutive games with a made three-point basket.
