He even drew praise from LeBron James himself:
Not only did the shooting guard tie Barros’ record, but he also drained 6-of-9 threes for the game en route to a season-high 23 points.
One of the league's most consistent outside shooters, Korver led the NBA in three-point percentage during the 2009-10 season as a member of the Utah Jazz.
Barros—a 5’11” tweener guard out of Boston College—played 13 seasons in the NBA from 1989-90 to 2001-02 (he played one game during the 2003-04 season). He suited up for the Seattle Supersonics, Philadelphia 76ers, Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons during his professional career.
He was named an All-Star and the league’s Most Improved Player for the 1994-95 season with the Sixers when he averaged 20.6 points and 7.5 assists per game (both career highs).
After the record-breaking triple, Korver has made 45 three-point shots on the season while shooting 51.7 percent from long range.
