On February 20, 2002, in a game against Houston, the Milwaukee Bucks’ Michael Redd set an NBA-record eight three-pointers in one quarter (the fourth) for 29 total game points!

"It took a lot of time in the gym, a lot of prayers, and believing I can be one of the best players in the NBA—I’m still working to get to that point. But as the year went on I got more playing time. Without my faith [in God] it would have been really, really tough to get through [that time] not playing.
"I grew up in a Bible-believing home, my father being a pastor for 30 years; it’s all I’ve known. I received Jesus Christ [into my heart] when I was 17 years old but He didn’t really become personal to me until about two or three years ago. It took some experiences, some trials and tribulations, that’s what helped develop my relationship with Christ over the last few years.
"God is love, His love is unconditional. God has pulled me out of situations that I knew I shouldn’t be in. But in His mercy, He loves me so much that He gives me a second chance, a third chance…"
