Miami Heat forward/guard Danny Granger recorded the 1,000th three-point field goal of his career in the first quarter of Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, per the team's official Twitter account.

Granger added two more three-pointers before the close of the first quarter but failed to hit any more throughout the remainder of the game. He finished with 14 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in just over 36 minutes.

The Heat lost the game by a score of 109-102, but Granger was not to blame. When he was on the floor, Miami outscored the Bucks, and ESPN.com's box score indicates he was the only Heat player for whom that was the case.

While reaching 1,000 career three-pointers may not be overly impressive—63 players have reached the total since Dale Ellis in the 1993-94 season—Granger is just one of 28 to do so while shooting above 38 percent from behind the arc.

St. Louis Blues goaltender Martin Brodeur is expected to retire from playing hockey and take on a job working in the team's front office, per Sportsnet.

Assuming he officially hangs the skates up, Brodeur will finish his career as the NHL's all-time leader in wins (691), shutouts (125), saves (28,928), goalie games (1,266) and goalie minutes (74,439), per Sportsnet Stats.

The 42-year-old living legend spent his first 21 seasons with the New Jersey Devils, but he shocked the world by signing with St. Louis in November after Blues goaltender Brian Elliott suffered a knee injury.

Brodeur then served as the backup to Jake Allen, who is having an up-and-down season in net with his strong 13-5-2 record backed by a weak .900 save percentage and 2.65 goals-against average (GAA).

New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis recorded 32 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, four blocks and three steals over 31 minutes in Monday's 99-74 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, making him the second player since 1973-74 to reach 30 points, 10 rebounds, four blocks and three steals while logging 31 or fewer minutes in a game, per NBA.com.

Davis joins Hakeem Olajuwon, who had exactly 30 points, 10 rebounds, four blocks and three steals over 29 minutes in a January 1987 game for the Houston Rockets against the Phoenix Suns, per Basketball-Reference.com's play index.

Davis' own dominant performance was accomplished in three quarters, as his heroics helped the Pelicans build an 85-62 lead entering the final frame. With Philadelphia unable to pull closer than 17 points at any point in the quarter, Davis watched from the bench as his team's second unit finished out the game.

The 21-year-old forward emerged as a star last season and has now taken the next step to become nearly unstoppable. Per ESPN Stats & Info, Monday marked his NBA-leading 10th game of the season with 30 points and 10 rebounds. He's also fallen just shy of the mark on multiple occasions.

Making just his fourth start of the 2014-15 season, Detroit Pistons guard D.J. Augustin recorded a career-high 35 points in Sunday's 114-110 loss to the Toronto Raptors, per Brendan Savage of MLive.com.

Augustin's insertion into the starting lineup was the result of some unfortunate news for the Pistons, as starting point guard Brandon Jennings was recently ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a torn Achilles tendon.

While Jennings' loss is clearly a big one for the rejuvenated Pistons, Augustin has seen more playing time than your average backup point guard this season, with Jennings averaging a modest 28.6 minutes per game.

After logging 37 minutes Sunday night, Augustin is averaging 21.8 per game, with at least 13 minutes played in each of Detroit's 45 contests.

Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside turned in a remarkable performance in Sunday's 96-84 win over the Chicago Bulls, becoming the first player in franchise history to record a triple-double that includes blocks, per ESPN Stats and Info.

Whiteside recorded 14 points, 13 rebounds and 12 blocks over just 24 minutes, 37 seconds to set a new NBA record for fewest minutes played in a game with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 blocks, per NBA.com/Stats.

He also logged the second-fewest minutes in a 12-block game, behind only Manute Bol's 12-block performance over 23 minutes in 1986-87, per NBA.com/Stats.

Furthermore, Whiteside became the first player since Shawn Bradley in 1997-98 to record 12 or more points, rebounds and blocks in the same game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

With Sunday's 112-100 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Atlanta Hawks became the 10th team in NBA history to win 30 or more games in a 32-game stretch, per ESPN Stats & Info.

The victory extended Atlanta's franchise-record winning streak to 16 games, after the team broke the record with Friday's 103-93 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Following a modest 8-6 start to the season, Atlanta started its run of dominance with a nine-game winning streak from Nov. 28 to Dec. 12, before losing a 100-99 nailbiter to the Orlando Magic on Dec. 13.

Just two days later, the Hawks started a five-game winning streak, which ended Dec. 26 with a surprising 107-77 home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

New York Islanders forward John Tavares tied an NHL All-Star Game record with his four goals in Sunday's 17-12 victory for Team Toews over Team Foligno, per ESPN Stats & Info.

In a game that featured 29 goals on 92 shots, Tavares was one of eight players to score multiple goals and one of just six skaters (out of 35) to finish without an assist.

He found twine once during the first period and once in the third, with a pair of goals during a second period that featured 11 between both teams.

Despite tying an All-Star Game record held by five other players, Tavares did not earn MVP honors, which instead went to Columbus Blue Jackets forward Ryan Johansen, who tallied two goals and two assists for Nick Foligno's team.

The Cleveland Cavaliers set a franchise record for largest halftime lead Friday against the Charlotte Hornets, carrying a 75-40 advantage into the break, per ESPN Stats & Info.

The 35-point margin narrowly bested the previous record of 34, set back in 2008 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

After jumping out to a 33-13 lead by the end of the first quarter, Cleveland outscored Charlotte 42-27 in the second quarter, giving the Cavs their sixth half with 75 or more points in franchise history, per Basketball-Reference.com's play index.

The franchise record of 79 points in a half was set in October 1979 against the Detroit Pistons.

With Friday's 103-93 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Atlanta Hawks set a new franchise record by winning a 15th consecutive game, per ESPN Stats & Info.

According to basketball-reference.com's play index, the old record of 14 straight wins was set back in 1993-94, a season best remembered in Hawks lore for the team's decision to trade franchise icon Dominique Wilkins to the Los Angeles Clippers for Danny Manning.

This year's team is unlikely to have a similar shake-up, as the Hawks own a 36-8 record that puts them 6.5 games ahead of the Washington Wizards for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

On pace for 67 victories, the Hawks have a good chance to best the single-season franchise record of 57, which was set in 1986-87 and matched in 1993-94.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson scored 37 points in the third quarter of Friday's 126-101 win over the Sacramento Kings to set a new NBA record for most points in a single quarter, per NBA.com/Stats.

In one of the most memorable performances in league history, Thompson entered his historic quarter with a modest 13 points, having made just three of his nine field-goal attempts in the first half.

He didn't score his first points of the second half until he drained a mid-range jumper with nine minutes, 44 seconds remaining in the third quarter, but it was lights-out from that point on.

Thompson scored each of Golden State's next 17 points, with his 19-point streak only ending when he picked up an assist on a lay-up by forward Draymond Green.
