Kyle Korver’s streak of consecutive games with a three-pointer ended at 127 Wednesday night against the Portland Trail Blazers. The sharpshooting guard went 0-5 from deep despite several good looks.

Korver broke the previous record (89) held by Dana Barros on Dec. 6 against the Cavaliers.  He started the streak during his second career game as a Hawk on Nov. 4, 2012.  He hadn’t played a game without making a three since the first game of the 2012-2013 season.

He went 0-5 and didn’t play the fourth quarter because the game was out of hand.  Korver’s cold shooting seemed to be contagious Wednesday.  Despite good ball movement and aggressive play, the Hawks couldn’t buy a bucket.  The shot quality was good, but Atlanta shot just 33 percent and just 4-27 (15%) from three.

Steph Curry is the player with the longest active streak at 50 games.
